In Pictures: Beyond Google Glass, wearable tech that will revolutionize business

From heads-up displays to implantable silicon, a brave new business world of innovative wearable tech is fast taking shape

Plantronics: Programmable headset Telephone headsets are hardly new, but Plantronics has elevated that mundane device to the level of wearable computer technology. Its Voyager Legend UC integrates with a user’s other hardware and software. On the simplest level, the headset identifies incoming callers and announces them verbally via integration with the user’s address book. A spoken command answers the call or sends it to voicemail. Using the company’s APIs, developers can write more advanced applications like this: A call comes in via an iOS or Android device; the headset checks to see if that person is in the user’s Salesforce database. If so, that information is automatically pulled up on the user’s PC; no more fumbling around while the caller waits.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
