 Smart Helmets

Smart helmets will be seen in the workforce more and more. Starting in the industrial areas, smart helmets are basically a smart phone that you wear on your head. OK, that sounds a little silly but you have been seeing them in futuristic movies for decades and they looked really cool then. Companies like DAQRI are creating cutting edge helmets that uses Augmented Reality or AR to enhance your visual work experience.  “Using Computer Vision, each DAQRI device recognizes and understands elements in your environment and surroundings. The system responds intelligently, providing relevant information targeted to you, your location, your task, and your skill level.”

Virtual Reality

This one is everywhere and the possibilities are endless for small business, from training staff or enhancing a customer experience, virtual reality will be a (remove extra ‘a’) huge game changer. Smart business owners that learn how to use this technology now can really set themselves apart from their competitors. VR is such a buzzword that you can start by having one in your waiting room and we are certain you’ll quickly see that patients and customers alike will enjoy coming to your place of business just for the experience.

Wireless Headphones

A little more subtle than a helmet and more practical in many small business workspaces, wireless head phones and wireless everything will be replacing the headsets of customer service representatives of old starting now. Work environments can now be more pleasant by eliminating the need to be chained to a desk space all day which will create a more natural and healthy space for employees. Happy employees is good for business!
