iquaYour employer makes you wear an ID badge around your neck to prove who you are, open doors and otherwise humiliate you. You also need your cellphone to stay in constant contact with your taskmasters. Since both items are with you at all times, why not combine the two into a single unit? While the Smart Badge from Finland's Iqua doesn't go quite that far (you still need a separate phone), it merges a Bluetooth headset with an ID badge, allowing you to use badge-mounted controls for volume and other settings. Next up, presumably, will be a version that does incorporate a phone, along with RFID and GPS, so that those higher up on the food chain org chart will always know where to find you.
