Facial recognition used to take class attendance

A U.K. school has implemented a system that uses facial recognition to take daily attendance.  Approach the gadget, enter your PIN number and your are present.  Video of the process right here.

This is a nice first step.  What I want is a camera that scans the class just after second bell and tallies those that are present.  Ten minutes later it scans again to see who arrived after first scan and marks them tardy.  All others are just absent.

And I’m still holding out for textbooks on a Kindle.
