Employee Gadget Tracker

Not too sure whether if everyone will love this but Phlips has come up with a gadget (DirectLife) that can track employee movement. It is marketed as a health tracker to help people adopt a more active lifestyle by monitoring their movement and motivating them in their daily activities.

DirectLife is based around a wearable device that uses a 3D digital accelerometer to track a person’s movements. The data is then uploaded via USB to a personal web-page. The user could set daily targets or goals and these results are then matched against these targets. The user is provided with a personal coach, on a subscription basis who will interact with users through the online portal.

Not too sure how true is this but Philips is claiming that the system reduce absenteeism and health costs. Well… I would have been very happy if my past employer provided me with an ellipticals machine or a gym subscription.
