If your a slacker at work you might like to read this. The Japanese phone giant KDDI has created a mobile phone that is capable of tracking your movements and what work you are doing during your daily business routine.
For example, the KDDI mobile phone strapped to waist of a cleaner can note the differences between actions performed such as scrubbing, sweeping, walking an even emptying a rubbish, then beam these back to their superior for analysis.
According to KDDI the aim of the tracking system is to enable employees to work more efficiently and managers to easily evaluate their employees’ performance while away from the office. KDDI already has a Japanese employment agency interested in deploying the new technology. It will be interesting to see how any privacy issues related to this mobile phone will be handled by employers.
