Wearables are an internet connected computing device that is worn. Fitness trackers and smart watches are two of the most common examples of this kind of technology. Even though the technology has been available for a number of years we are only now starting to scratch the surface of the possibilities these devices provide.
Usage of smart phones has increased dramatically over the last 10 years. Along with phones comes other devices such as tablets, wearables, and even the expansive Internet of Things (IOT). We are also seeing a rise in the next kind of mobile technology, Augmented Reality. The challenge many business owners and decision makers now face with all these new mobile technology is in trying to answer the question: how does this bring value to my business? This is where we come in. We've been working with technology for almost 20 years, through the rise of the web and from the first iPhone, we've been working with and developing for these platforms for a long time. This brings a wealth of experience, in not only developing for the this technology, but in sharing our experiences in how we can utilize these to assist your company.
Augmented Reality (AR) is viewed by many to be the next big frontier in consumer technology, but what is it and how can it help your company? Augmented reality is an interactive experiences where our "real world" environment is augmented with virtual (computer generated) elements. Most uses of AR currently use visual elements, but but other senses can experience the augmentation through haptic, auditory, somatosensory, and/or olfactory.
Just a few years ago the idea mobile apps was considered sci-fi, today it's one of the largest sections of digital development. Mobile applications are programs that run on a phone or tablet, they can be games, news readers, banking service, or just about anything one could envision. While the market quickly came to maturity, there is still a lot of room for new and interesting ideas.
Internet of Things (IoT) is a very large concept. In essence an IoT device is any device connected to the internet. These devices tend to be more single use devices, as opposed to computers, phone, or tablets. Some examples are security cameras, smart refrigerator, doorbell, smart lock, etc. As technology progresses, our ability to take what was traditionally considered a "dumb" device (singular or limited functionality) and turn it into a "smart" (integrated into a local network or onto the internet) device.
