What Would You Do With “The Rationalizer”?

October 16, 2009

Some Friday fun…

There are so many technologies that HR departments can use to track, measure, monitor, survey, and assist in the employee life cycle.  I read about a new technology that isn’t being targeted at employees but maybe it could be.

RationalizerPhillips Electronics is making an electronic bracelet called “The Rationalizer“.  It’s a bracelet that supposedly measures the emotions of the person wearing it by analyzing their skin responses (sweat).  The intent is to have people who buy and sell stock online to wear the bracelet and when they become too emotional, it will let them know so that they do not buy or sell when they are too upset.

I wonder how that would work for employees.  Maybe we could hand them out to managers when they were going to have a performance conversation with an employee on their team.  They could be given to a group of executives who are going to a budgeting meeting with the CFO.  The possibilities are endless.

If you had these bracelets, who would you give them to and why? The funnier, the better…..
