A system straight out of Manna

Big brother will watch you in the office

From the article:The article hypothesizes other uses. For example, if two people seem to spend a lot of time near each other, they may be having an office tryst. If too many people get together for an "unscheduled meeting", it may indicate a huge waste of time or potential mutiny. And so on.

If you want to see where systems like this lead us, read the book Manna.

See also Manna and the water heater.

Can't wait to go to work with systems like this in place. Headsets a la Manna cannot be far behind.
I can already imagine the black market potential of fake ID badges. People will leave their real badges at their desks and wander around all day wearing the fakes.
