Submission + - Virtual boss keeps workers on a leash. (cnn.com)

Gr8Apes writes: Hitachi has created a "perfect virtual boss"

"Hitachi, the big electronics company based in Japan, is manufacturing and selling to corporations a device intended to increase efficiency in the workplace. It has a rather bland and generic-sounding name: the Hitachi Business Microscope (paywalled).

But what it is capable of doing ... well, just imagine being followed around the office or the factory all day by the snoopiest boss in the world. Even into the restroom."
