Technology sure has come a long way. In the past, schools have used technology to help children learn. It seems that in Louisiana schools they could soon use them to accelerate the lunch line. Are the length of lunch lines at schools in America that big of a problem that a machine needs to step in? Some people think so.
In Louisiana, they are trying to purchase and implement a new lunch line scanner in elementary schools to help expedite things in the lunch lines.
The palm scanners are made Fujitsu, the same company that makes the Fujitsu cameras and film. These scanners use the light that is similar to infrared technology. These infrared lights take a biometric photograph of the child’s vein structure in the palm. The scanner keeps a record of this vein structure in the palm for future reference and to ease the process of that child’s turn through the lunch line.
When the children go through the line, all they will have to do is place their palm on the scanner. The scanner recognizes their palm vein structure and then that palm is tied to an account. That account is used to buy lunch for that child. Thus, the process of accessing their lunch account and purchasing is all one smooth process for the child. This will make the process of paying for school lunches a breeze.
The scanners were recommended by an official at the school, Patricia Hoseman, who is the food service director at the school.
The principal of the school says that they are well needed because the school is so large in capacity. Dailymail.co.uk tells us that Principal Caldarera says, “With an elementary school they all come through line, and most of them eat here. It would make us more efficient and more accurate.”
This technology would eliminate a lot of mistakes that could be made during the process. Parents are still upset over the use of this technology. Parents are over reacting and referencing this technology to something whose appearance is supposed to signify the “end times”.
Of course parents and individuals alike have the freedom to pray to, preach how, or believe what ever they like. The Christian implications suggest that the technology is like what the Bible calls the “Mark of the Beast”. This mark of the beast in the Christian Bible is what Christians believe will be forced upon people, and that only those that have this mark will be allowed to buy, sell, and trade.
The Christian Bible talks about something being put into the right hands or foreheads of people. This school food scanner technically does not qualify as a “Mark of the Beast”. Something like an RFID chip does in fact qualify. RFID stands for “Radio-frequency Identification”. This chip is a class 3 device as stated by the FDA, and is an implantable chip that will be used to house medical information for easy access in case the user ever becomes incapacitated.
Louisiana schools doesn’t believe they are bringing about the apocalypse with their palm scanners. They just want things to run along more smoothly in their school during lunch time.
