Managing Director of PXL Vision Karim Nemr (Karim Nemr) told how the new technology allows you to confirm your identity via smartphone. According to the expert, such an opportunity will greatly facilitate the life of people.
The new technology allows you to replace employees who are currently verifying the identity of potential customers in a bank branch or mobile operator’s store. The process is this: first, the mobile device scans the front and back of its ID card, and then records a short selfie video. Using the application, documents are uploaded to a certified server. Within a few seconds, the system confirms the authenticity of the scanned document and video if there is a real face in front of the camera and if the identity document matches that person. Using this fully automated method, customers can immediately set up a bank account anywhere, with no time limits.

According to Karim Nemra, the technology, called Daego, supports all international travel documents, as well as other forms of identification, such as a voter card, which serves as the main identity card in Mexico. The new opportunity will come in handy in other areas, for example, when hiring a nanny, private tutor, for online games or dating on the Internet. Using the application, people can quickly check whether the person at the door is really the person who applied for the position. PXL Vision's Managing Director says the new technology is completely secure.

The proliferation of high-tech clothing is hindered by numerous manufacturers of ordinary textiles. They are monopolists, and spending years on development is not in their interests. However, scientists do not stop, they introduced a new technological material into a T-shirt based on ... tomato skins.
The main task is the creation of electrically conductive textiles that have superior properties over invented analogues to date. A combination of tomato skins with a special electrolyte nano-formula was handled by a group of scientists from Spain and Italy. They called their success "a step forward." The reason is the use of cheap, generally available and less toxic material with sufficient electrical conductivity. Comparative experiments with products from lead, tellurium or germanium showed that "tomato know-how" is in no way inferior, but in some ways superior to analogues.
Numerous experiments led to the development of an ecological alcohol formula, where tomato skins were combined with carbon nanoparticles. Eco-alcohol adheres to the cotton fabric when the material is heated to body temperature. Moreover, there is enough heat generated during normal walking. The difference in ambient and body temperatures generates electricity, the voltage of which is enough to charge a smartphone and any other gadget. Equipping a T-shirt with LEDs, you can ensure a constant glow in the dark. Note that this is a very shocking option when going to a club where there will be no lack of attention a priori.

Recall that 80% of Ukrainian children are on the Internet for more than an hour during the day, 30% - more than three hours a day. Every fourth parent in Ukraine monitors the gadgets of their children. Among the British - only 14% of parents know what their children are doing on the Internet.
