We have seen plenty of wearable devices that can monitor your activity, track your workouts, and even keep you on top of your smartphone notifications. Hitachi’s new wearable tech aims to measure happiness in people. Folks will have to wear a card-size device equipped with an accelerometer that gathers data and sends it to the cloud for analysis. The device tracks data 50 times a second and detects walking, typing, and other activities.

The technology can be used to monitor a group’s behavior. How successful it can be in a workplace setting remains to be seen though.
