    One piece of missing information is whether Amazon has made a comment on the band, and if they have, what is it?

      Hello there. I will add a statement it made to technology site The Verge. Thanks.

    Look at the diagram and it has an uncanny resemblance to the clock like machine in the film Metropolis. Where the operator must move the hands to point to lights as and when they switch on.

    That’s a film made in 1927 where they are showing how the world could be today. Looks like they got it right!

    I’ve submitted a tweak to the title. Tracking workers isn’t anything new, but the patent is specifically about tracking – and directing – workers’ hands, so I’ve suggested:
