Everyone wants technology to be at his or her fingertips. So many wireless companies have made it easier by offering smart phones. These cellular phones can access the internet, take high quality pictures, and play video games. It is like having a mini computer right in your pocket.
Could life be any easier? Well apparently it can. Over at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, they are developing new software that will allow you to project a screen with a mini projector connected to your cellular phone or any other device. You will be able to look up products and compare them automatically while shopping in a retail store. Don’t feel like pulling out your phone to call a friend? No problem, you can just dial their number on your hand.
Sixth Sense is software that others will be able to manipulate for their own use. So what does that mean for consumers? We will be able to surf quicker, research products and compare prices. It would be like having an invisible smart phone. At this point in time it is still in testing, but you definitely be on the lookout for any new updates in this.
From a business perspective, our IT recruiting firm (AVID Technical Resources) would greatly benefit from such a technology. Our technical recruiters Boston and IT staffing salespeople could bring up documents, proposals or even notes while outside of the office visiting clients or prospective IT job seekers. Outside of the IT staffing industry, other businesses are surely to see the value as well.
For better or for worse, information technology is fueling our ever-changing world, making our lives more efficient every day. It’s up to each of us to stay on top of these trends.
