The idea behind the project is to eliminate the checkout lines from Shopping Malls and stores, it allows shopper to directly scan the bar code of a product through his phone while picking it up from aisle. When the shopper is done with the shopping, he is able to pay the net amount without standing and waiting in checkout lines.

MERN Stack(Redux)

Paras Gupta iBlog

There are a lot of websites that are what people refer to as blogging platforms and they are quite popular. What I thought was that people prefer stuff that offers interaction. Radio turned to telephone. Text to Whatsapp. People are inclined towards two way communication and everyone expects that, even if that's subconsciously.
Like if anyone posts something on instagram, they want people to like it and share their thoughts via comments. Same on YouTube.
So that brings us to people who comment. They want their views to be heard. It's human nature.
So I bring to you iBlog. It's a blogging website as you might have guessed. But what's new?
Go ahead and find out..
