Japanese office workers hoping to nod off on the job may need to sleep with one eye open thanks to a new system that can detect snoozers and blast them with cold air.
Air conditioning manufacturer Daikin and electronics giant NEC said Thursday they have begun trialling the system, which monitors the movement of the employee’s eyelids with a camera attached to a computer.

All I can say is, "fcuking good luck with that."
When I worked at Hitachi, a good 20 percent of the workforce was sound asleep at their desks after lunch 1:45pm.
And, I would gladly pretend to sleep to set the office’s air conditioner thermostat lower 28°C (82°F), which the tech guideline the government has set for torturing employees.

    How many offices are still trying to keep the office at 28℃ while people are passing out this year? Children/seniors dying due to A/C kechiness (or just lack of AC) seems at an all time high…

  2. Beautiful technology!

    Imagine it. If you die of Karoshi(過労死)/overwork, the AC temp will be turned down automatically to keep your corpse fresh.

    That’s what I call Japanese innovation…
