The V-MODA VAMP acts as an amplifier for the iPhone 4 or 4S. It adds volume and quality to the audio that these devices can deliver. One of the benefits about this is that as well as enhancing the sound the iPhone can produce, it also lengthens the battery life as it acts as a back-up battery.
The Alice Receptionist is a video-based virtual receptionist that can alter the way you staff your office. The Alice Receptionist uses a sensor to recognize when guests arrive to your workplace. These guests may then tap a touchscreen to contact your employees or talk with them through video or voice services. Best of all, this virtual receptionist is easy for businesses to master.
SmartGlass, developed by Microsoft, allows users to transform a smartphone or tablet into a high-tech, super-smart controller for your HDTV. By using gestures on your mobile device, you can manage media such as music, games and videos on your TV screen. The technology is scheduled to be released later this year, and will be designed for the iPhone, iPad, Android devices and Windows 8 tablets, according to Inc.
