So far, 2015 is full of emerging technology trends.
Take a look at the top 7 tech trends I found to revolutionize your office. Wow your clients, customers, and employees with an efficient and up-to-date space!
1. Wireless Charging
Draining batteries adds excess cost, while wireless charging keeps you truly mobile— no ball and chain to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. Energous’ WattUp works like a wireless router, beaming energy to charge tablets, phones, and even lightbulbs from up to 20 feet away. The router locates devices in need of a charge, connects to them via Bluetooth LE, and wirelessly powers the devices in an open space.
2. Smart Homes
Motion censored lighting 2.0: this bulb offers security monitoring are making for a much smarter bulb. Stack Lighting’s Alba LED is a flood light that contains sensors to detect ambient light levels. When you enter the room, the lights turn on automatically, but also can be controlled remotely with a smartphone app or computer to adjust the color from, say, a warm orange to cooler blue tone.
3. Hacker-Proof Gear
Technology is vulnerable to hackers and can put your business — and your clients’ personal information — at risk. Don’t get me wrong, staying up-to-date with antivirus and antiphishing software is still important, but other add-ons add another layer of protection for
4. High-Tech Virtual Meetings
Videoconferencing is so 2014. You can add an extra dimension to your virtual meetings with new 3-D technology. Personify seats all parties side-by-side along the bottom of your screen, leaving you space to pull up pertinent information.
5. Voice-Controlled Presentations
Forget the laser pointer fumble— with Lionsharp’s VoiceBoard, you simply speak your command as you present PowerPoint slides. It’s dubbed as the first voice- and gesture-controlled presentation tool. Simply wear a ring on your index finger and use gestures to control your presentation via Bluetooth, such as changing slides.
6. Social Payments
One of my favorite innovations! Social-mobile payment apps like PayPal’s Venmo and Square’s Cash have made headway in the last few years. Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat are looking to integrate mobile payments into their offerings. Imagine typing *BUY* and having your product delivered to your customers door.
7. Smart Virtual Personal Assistants (SVPAs)
This is Siri on steroids. “Predictive intelligence” apps use voice recognition to sort through personal data from email messages, address books, calendars, and task lists in order to anticipate the next logical step and drastically boost daily efficiency. Companies like Apple, Google, and Yahoo recently acquired SVPA apps to help consumers get stuff done even before they would remember to do it otherwise. Pretty neat!
