RFID under the toilet seat

Intel has developed an RFID system to monitor elderly or impaired people activities. RFID tags are placed in household objects (cups, medicine bottles, and even toilet seats) and a glove embedded with a RFID reader monitors and reports use. If the system senses that things are not being used properly (alcool or sugary drinks banned from their diet in that glass? there goes the alarm!!!) or not being used at all, it alerts the care giver that a problem might have occured.

Are there many people who would be ready to abandon so much of their privacy?
