Microsoft patent: wireless way to monitor workers



Quote:
Microsoft submitted a patent application in the US for a ?unique monitoring system? that could link workers to their computers. Wireless sensors could read ?heart rate, galvanic skin response, EMG, brain signals, respiration rate, body temperature, movement facial movements, facial expressions and blood pressure?, the application states.


They want to keep close track of workers

What do you think?

I heard this on the radio this morning. Its terrible but I bet it gets used by some unscrupulous employers.

I remember when technology was supposed to make our lives better and easier. When we would all have so much time and money on our hands that we wouldn't know what to do with it.

But what did we get? 1984!
