Beginning Saturday, March 1, students and staff at Tennessee State University will be required to present identification badges at any time that can also track their movements in and out of buildings, according to a local-news report.

Of course, it doesn’t stop there, although it would be concerning enough if it did. The same ID cards have other uses as well:

Besides being used to access buildings, the IDs can be used as meal cards, to check out library materials, to access computer labs and athletic events, and more.

So who will be data mining and commercializing all these data, because you just know it’s going to happen?
