美大学用苹果Apple Watch当校园卡

据外媒报道,美国一大学正在探索苹果Apple Watch的新用处。

比如,美国阿拉巴马大学最近就宣布了一个项目,尝试以Apple Watch取代实体的学生证,由本星期起,佩戴Apple Watch的学生可以利用手表进宿舍,在饭堂购买餐饮,使用图书馆服务等。

阿拉巴马大学的总裁Stewart Bell表示学校筹备穿戴式学生证已经经有一段日子,不过一直未有公开,直到最近一切准备就绪才公布项目细节。这个先导计划是和Apple合作的成果,据说会在今年除了Apple Watch,这计划还支持iPhone,只需将iPhone或Apple Watch靠近装置就可以认证和使用。

No more ID cards for University of Alabama students with an Apple Watch or iPhone.

Apple said in a statement said only have to raise their wrist to gain access to places including the library, dorms and events, pay for snacks, laundry and dinners around campus, the Tuscaloosa News reported . The software was presented this week as students with an Apple Watch or iPhone can add their ID cards to the wallet for usage this fall.

UA president Stewart Bell spoke more in depth about the pilot program at a board meeting last week. The new software is cost free.

"We have actually been working on this project for some time a little bit under the cloak of secrecy," Bell said. "It is a next-generation technology program that will allow our students to have access to security issues and things they pay for."

The program is set to launch at Duke University, the University of Oklahoma and the University of Alabama in September and expand to Johns Hopkins University, Santa Clara University and Temple University by the end of the year.

Bell said the university and Apple have been partnering to develop the program for about a year. The functions will be available in September after students arrive for fall classes on Aug. 22.
