If you see the above picture, this actually shows a fantastic innovation where from a device, you are getting a virtual key board appearing on any flat surface, which can communicate with a mobile and hence help in faster, easier usage just like a full-fledged QWERTY keyboard.
I personally believe that the definition of a “conventional” office is under threat – office can now mean any place in the world, whether you are at your home, or in a multiplex, or in a restaurant or even your toilet :-) All that is possible just because of the innovations like what is depicted in the picture and the huge advancement of technology in the mobile / smart phone arena.
I think the following parameters will transform how we define ‘work’ – whether in offices or even how we do our personal work :
– speedy access to internet with adequate bandwidth through 3G, 4G, 5G’s
– advancement of cloud usage, whether in private of public domain
– enhanced security issues surrounding internet access, specially from a cloud perspective
– growth of battery back-up innovations – smaller, lighter batteries with lot of back-up power
– finally the innovations as depicted in the picture which will ease usage of typing, editing, reviewing, presenting through virtual screens, keyboards, etc
The usage of smart-phones have increased many folds and that has made life quite easy and accessible. You can remain connected, write mails or posts (like what I am doing now) on the fly, video calls with friends, relatives, clients; doing online transactions – whether be it buying some stocks or transferring money from your bank account to your parents; buy tickets to the latest destination or the recent movie; play games and relax when you want to, chat with friends located thousands of miles away from you; check the latest score by watching live TV; checking on breaking news; etc, etc. You can do all this NOW !
With the maturity and innovative developments, I am sure very soon you can review complicated power point presentations or documents on a ‘big’ virtual screen with a full QWERTY ‘virtual’ keyboard even though your mobile screen is very very small. You should be able to perform video conferences with multiple people without worrying about speed, battery back-up. We are in the middle of this transformation and anyone who is working in mobile technology or others who are associated with anything that’s mobile (like me, as an user) are witness to a major global revolution !
The world will be all mobile ! And very soon …
