To me watching what people do on the computer is what we have been doing here at PC Tattletale since 2003. No big deal there. But now it looks like your boss can soon see your every move. How? By your employee ID badge. You can check out more about how they can do it here:
The days of skiving behind your boss’s back may be numbered, following the announcement of a new product that can track your every movement in the workplace.
Electronics manufacturer Hitachi has unveiled a high-tech ID badge that not only tracks an employee’s exact location within the office, it also keeps a record of all the other staff members they have spoken to, for how long and how energetically.
Dubbed the Business Microscope, the device will also send an employer information on how much time each member of staff spends out of their seat – and even how long they have spent in the toilet.
Business Microscope: Hitachi’s high-tech ID badge tracks an employee’s exact location within the office, sending their employer information on how long they spent out of their seat and where in the building they went
The business microscope is fitted with sensors that let it sync and interact with other Business Microscopes within the company.
These multiple sensor devices are placed inside a nameplate-type product that is attached to employees.
When the name tag sensors come within a specific distance of each other, they recognise each other and record the face time, body and behaviour rhythm data to a server.
