Hitachi has moved forward in the RFID game, releasing a Wi-Fi-active tag for what the company calls “precise management of people.”

What we’re talking about here is an identification tag not unlike the photo IDs that many people already have to wear. The difference, of course, is that these tags can be tracked electronically. Theoretically, your boss can always know where you are (provided, of course, that you’re still wearing that RFID tag when you’re taking an extended break somewhere).

Hitachi says that one of its aims is to be able to find people in emergency situations. They can also track you entering and leaving the building, which kind of makes timeclocks and timesheets obsolete, don’t you think?
