“Can’t you see I’m busy? A desk-mounted traffic light system automatically measures how hard a person is working to tell would-be interrupters when to stay well away.”
The New Scientist reports about the FlowLight system, which was developed by SEAL (Thomas Fritz, Manuela Züger, André Meyer) and ABB (David Shepherd).
FlowLight measures a worker's activity and indicates with a color LED light whether he or she may or may not be interrupted.
