Your 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.
