A recent video of a lazer system in the office at an American multinational company in southern Italy has caused a stir among the staff, with the manager of the company expressing her dismay.
The video shows the company’s automated office assistant, which was installed by an American contractor in 2014, at work in a building in Rome.
The video was shot by an employee in a meeting room.
The office assistant is clearly in her 40s, and the employee’s voice is not clearly heard, but she appears to be holding the lazer with one hand while taking photos with it.
The sound of the lazar is clearly audible as the assistant opens a window and walks towards the office.
The Italian government has banned the installation of the machine, saying it can lead to more serious injuries and deaths.
The company said it is committed to developing the technology for use by other companies, but added it will not be changing its systems without full legal and safety guarantees.
Lazer is an acronym for Lightweight and Affordable Office Automation, an acronym used by the US and several European companies that are pushing for better productivity and safety.
The company says its machines can reduce energy consumption, save money and reduce the time required for office workers.
Lazar machines have been installed in other offices around the world, including the UK and France.
