Magic Leap Retargets to Businesses

Vernon Offers Magic Leap Mixed Reality Headset for Rent

Say hello to Magic Leap 1 – a $2995 mixed reality headset aimed at juxtaposing virtual reality animations with the real world. At such a price point, many would agree that the product is priced much too high for the average consumer – and the numbers would say the same. As such, Magic Leap has decided to switch their focus to enterprises, successfully casting themselves into the market for business-related applications. In concentrating on visual interaction, 3D visualization, training and assistance and location-based services, the company has taken steps to appeal to the professional environment.

Magic Leap has recently announced testing for Jump by Magic Leap, aimed at enabling new channels of communication and collaboration for users who are both physically and virtually co-present. With Jump, companies can bridge their digital content with elements of the physical world in a way that grows creative efforts and productivity. Real estate companies have employed Jump as a means of providing individuals with the ability to experience 3D models of buildings while aiding in future development; thereby, reducing travel costs, environmental impacts and processes of interaction.

Jump can generate visual models of just about anything – from jet engines to statistical sets. In producing spatial insights and real-world scaling, Jump takes decision-making and complex business endeavours to the next level. Coupled with a unique ability to create visual representations of instructions, the program also functions to streamline training operations and enable employees to participate in more comprehensive and amusing training sessions.

Why Renting Technology is Better Than Owning

Technology is always evolving… and so should your business. In order to keep up with your competitors and provide clients with the latest and greatest in tech trends, it is important to have access to the most current products. At Vernon, we understand how expensive ‘keeping up with the times’ can be, which is why we offer a wide range of flexible renting options.

If you only require certain products for a specified amount of time, there’s no reason for you to purchase brand new items at cost. Save your money, and rent instead. With the most current technology made affordable, you can receive top-of-the-line products while avoiding any long-run expenses, commitments, maintenance or storage costs. Depending on the nature of your business, renting may even entitle you to receive certain types of tax-deduction benefits.

Let us help you source your favourite products with minimal payments – so that you can delegate your finances to the more important things.

Don’t Let Technophobia Overwhelm You

Did you know that research suggests Americans are “more afraid of technology than death?” With our futures becoming more tech-centered, more people are experiencing what has come to be known as technophobia – the fear of technology and its advances. 

If you read our last blog, you already have a sense of how advanced our technology is becoming, and how we are already well on the road of becoming fully dependent on it. Though robot movies and discussions about A.I. can embed a number of frightening thoughts in our heads, most of them are, in fact, irrational fears – the most common one being that of machines making humans obsolete. 

Inasmuch as technophobia is becoming a widespread concern, unfortunately it is not as easy as it sounds to halt our technology use. These tech advances have undoubtedly made our lives easier, and many of our devices have truly become extensions of ourselves in our daily life. 

While technology is not going anywhere soon, we can learn to monitor the amount that we use. With so many of us becoming overwhelmed by all of the changes in our digital world, it is important not to inundate your guests and attendees with an unnecessary amount of digital devices and toys. Don’t overlook the importance of quality over quantity – spend more money on something eye-catching this year and keep your customers at ease. 

Check out our full selection of offerings or call us at 1-877-752-0916 to discuss how we can help you and your business today.

Make Your Future Wireless

If you live in North America, it is likely that you have access to wireless connection pretty much anywhere, anytime. With most of us being able to enjoy the luxury of 24/7 network connection for all of our devices, it is clear that chords and cables are quickly becoming a thing of the past. 

We are now witnessing wireless charging, headphones and even electric cars. As A.I. continues to advance, it is predicted that our houses will have the ability to fully adapt to our routines, with nearly all of our electronic devices expected to be able to configure themselves to our unique needs. In lieu of our ever-changing digital world, companies like Qualcomm have even invested close to $50 billion in wireless initiatives. 

At Vernon, we can help you keep up with the wireless tech trends by powering your event with high-speed network performance. Let us assist in making your events, and future, wireless and call us at 1-877-752-0916.

Top Innovative Tech Trends of 2019

laptop rental

Over the years, we have gone through many different trends in the tech industry, such as blu-ray DVDs, mobile phones, wireless Internet and desktop videoconferencing. Nowadays, businesses are more concerned with trends that allow them to stay connected to make their day-to-day activities easier.

Some of the top innovative tech trends of 2019 include:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Although it has been around since 1956, AI is still an emerging trend in our current society. Used in navigation apps, smart home devices and to schedule trains, AI technology is able to mimic human intelligence in a faster and more accurate way than humans. Businesses have begun using AI for money-saving tasks such as assessing business risk.

Machine Learning – Similar to AI, Machine Learning uses human intelligence to learn and discover new patterns to learn things they weren’t originally programmed to do such as image and facial recognition.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – This technology allows us to use machines to do all the repetitive tasks that people used to do, such as replying to emails or processing transactions. People are always saying robots are coming for our jobs and this has never been more true with RPA. However, with the removal of menial task jobs, RPA also creates many other job opportunities.

Blockchain – While it is often associated with cryptocurrency, Blockchain creates a chain of data that you are able to add on to but cannot remove or change. Businesses are beginning to use this secure data chain for banking and insurance as it negates the use of a trusted third-party to validate transactions.

Cyber Security – Similar to AI, Cyber Security has been around for a long time. In a world that is constantly changing, especially regarding technology, it is always in need of evolving itself. With hackers becoming more skilled it is important for cyber security to adapt to any incoming threats.

Internet of Things (IoT) – Today, everywhere has wifi and everything is connected to the Internet. IoT refers to the providing wifi connectivity to everyday ‘things’ such as home appliances, cars, etc. Whether it is locking your front door from your phone, tracking your fitness or booking a taxi, IoT keeps you connected.

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) – Primarily used for gaming to immerse and enhance a user in a specific environment, VR and AR have been making their way into the business world. These popular trends are now being used for education, training, marketing and entertainment purposes.

Stay connected and don’t miss out on these trends. Call 1-877-752-0916 or click here to inquire how Vernon can keep you trending with our VR hardware.
