Amazon patent hand-tracking wristbands for warehouse workers
Jeff Bezos and the folks at Amazon are taking employee micromanagement to a whole new level.
SEATTLE — Internet mega company Amazon recently patented designs for a wireless wristbands to track warehouse workers' hands
The patent describes system that steers employees hands to the correct box. So if you're hands go to the wrong place, that wristband is gonna buzz like a TomoNews sub with notifications turned on.
Now the company told GeekWire, the plan with this is to free up workers wrists and eyes from scanners. So it's totally not for track those bathroom breaks but hey Amazon's already got that covered with reports of alleged timed toilet breaks.
The Verge writes the technology "seems dystopian", we reckon it seems more Bezo-nian.
