Remote Tracking

Movie: Waterworld (1995)
2) An early sacrificial scene takes place in front of a dying tree. Other scenes also emphasise the death of trees and scarcity of wood, including a National Geographic magazine with the slogan "Paradise Lost" against the photo of a forest and the drawing of a tilted tree, and a wooden piano relic hanging aboard the Mariner's trimaran. Wood and paper are some of the most precious items in Waterworld - in particular "resin" - defined as "many plants, particularly woody plants, produce resin in response to injury". The Smokers - representing the elite - say that "if there's a tree then they'll ram it because they are talking progress", and are shown to have more sophistication over music (and video) compared to what the Mariner has access to, though their TV still shows some interference on it. The Mariner wears a microchip around his neck as a necklace - a souvenir from past civilisation. A flying machine is used to locate people in Waterworld - similar to a drone.

Movie: Prometheus (2012)
9) Some crew members that remain in the cave are being "tracked" by a green computer system on-board the ship that shows 3 red numbers moving around the screen: "2","3", and "6" in the context of "holocaust planning". One anomaly is detected as being alive, but soon disappears off the radar. The crew members discuss going "East" instead of "West" - fading to a scene with Dr. Shaw (the main star) eating Japanese noodles.
