The fast-scanning, infrared camera is connected to an AR (augmented reality) headset, allowing cops to measure people’s temperature in real-time. If thats not enough it can scan up to 13 people at once and 200 in a minute. The helmet can also be paired with contact-tracing apps and facial recognition software.
KC Wearable was started by Chinese students of Oxford and Duke universities (because theres nothing better than colonising the world with knowledge of smart technologies from the West!), becoming a “global leader in industries such as AI, AR/VR, smart wearable helmet, smart watches, smart glasses as well as new wireless communication technology, which provide comprehensive solutions for a variety of scenarios in smart city and smart life….
We believe that today people are wearing our technology on the outside and, one day on the inside, too.”
Trialed in India and Italy. Coming to a smart prison city near you soon!
In line with recommendations being laid out by the World Economic Forum and the UN 2030 Agenda, Bologna, Italy, plans to launch a social credit style app that has striking similarities with Communist China’s social credit system. The app rewards or punishes its citizens for their behavior. Dubbed “Smart Citizen Wallet,” the app will track activities such as recycling, public transportation use, and energy management.
The primary argument for the program is to “save resources” and promote climate-friendly behavior. Those displaying good behavior will collect digital coins and receive discounts at local shops based on the given scores.
The app is already active and in experimental stages in Rome and is set to go live in Bologna in Autumn. Bologna Mayor Matteo Lepore and Massimo Bugani, director of the city’s “Digital Agenda,” discussed the project at a March 29 conference. Bugani indicated the app was part of a more comprehensive effort by the city to invest in digital innovation.
