Hushme may look intimidating, but it really could be useful for businesses that depend on phone calls and don’t have a lot of space. The device wraps around the user’s head and covers their mouth like a muzzle. There are noise-cancelling headphones attached. Once the device is on, the user can talk into it and no one can hear a sound.
It isn’t too difficult to imagine the practical application for a device like this. You simply get the privacy you’d want, even if you are talking in a busy, bustling environment.
If your business uses a lot of paper or it handles a lot of sensitive information, the shredder often works overtime. Well, the printing professionals at Epson have developed a machine that is effectively the first in-office paper recycler. Using this technology, a company can not only destroy sensitive information, it can take all the waste paper that it has and recycle it in-house.
The way it works is that once wastepaper is put into the machine, it is defiberized, removing traces of all information and color. At this point the fibers are then formed under pressure back into sheets of paper. The machine then cuts the paper to specification and you have recycled paper.
Many offices have some sort of projector they use to broadcast information, but a company named XGIMI has begun to take the technology of projectors to the next level. The company has a number of innovative new devices that do a number of amazing things. There are devices that broadcast 4K video, there are some that fit in the palm of your hand, and one even has theater-grade sound built right into the projector unit.
A lot of people prefer their laptop to a bulky desktop computer. The problem is that sometimes there simply isn’t enough screen real estate while you are on the go to do all the things you need to do as effectively as you need to do them. WIth XEBEC’s Tri-Screen 2, you can add two fully-functional screens to your laptop. All you need to do is hook the device into your laptop and you now have a fully-functional, multi-screen workstation anywhere you go.
