Ikad and Malaysian game exhibition

Remember my post about how I queued so long to make an Ikad?
Well, I’ve taken the card yesterday. Yea, the layout is nicer than the old one. Much nicer I could say. And they stated that it’s the first iKad in the world for foreigners in Malaysia.

As said by Malaysian Prime Minister, Mr. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi during the launch of iKad:

“Kad tersebut bagi menggantikan kad pengenalan imigresen sedia ada untuk pekerja asing, pembantu rumah asing, pelajar antarabangsa, pegawai dagang dan peserta ‘Malaysia Rumah Kedua’.

Ia dilengkapi dengan 17 ciri keselamatan fizikal yang tinggi bagi menjamin kad pengenalan itu tidak dipalsukan.

Antara ciri-ciri keselamatan itu ialah penyimpanan dua cap jari biometrik, penggunaan gambar berwarna dan maklumat pemegang kad pada cip yang hanya memerlukan saiz kurang dari dua kilobit.

Kad tersebut menggunakan teknologi Cip Keselamatan Karsof buatan Malaysia manakala empat jenis teknologi yang digunakan pada kad itu sedang dipatenkan sebagai teknologi negara ini”



“The card will be used to replace the current immigration card for foreign workers, housemaids, employees, students, , and the participants of “Malaysia, My Second Home” (I don’t have any idea what is this actually)

There will be high-security 17 physical identities which guaranteed they won’t be able to be duplicated.

Some of the identities are two biometric thumb prints, color photograph, and card holder’s biodata inside the small chip that’s less than 2KB in size.

The card uses Karsof Safety Chip technology made in Malaysia whereby four types of technologies that are used in the card are being patented as Malaysian technology”

Anyway, here are a few pics taken when I was waiting to take my Ikad…
