This reality/virtual combination looks set to spark all kinds of reactions: chunky glasses that let you access up to six screens 'in thin air' when you pop them on, enabling you to work - or not - from anywhere. The Indian company says: "At Nimo, our vision is to create the world's best productivity computer that fits in the pocket and helps people to work from anywhere." The device in development promises much for those keen to be productive or work from anywhere, but also for those who like the idea of being able to chat, view entertainment and so on without carrying a smartphone or laptop around. Confidentiality is plugged as well as convenience - if you're the only one looking through the magic glasses, nobody else can take a peek at your screen as they pass behind you at work. However, those of us who've at some point lost a pair of glasses will be feeling stressed already at the thought of leaving the Nimos somewhere, precipitating loss of our or our company's innermost secrets, quite apart from the usual expense and inconvenience of replacing the item. Then there'll be those who are wondering about the privacy/surveillance issues and how the user is approved/tracked/permitted to exercise their functions. There's already pushback about the increasingly invasive, 'Big Brother' tech tactics being deployed by some companies to track employees' movements annd compliance. What effect does this campaign have on you? Have you already signed up to be on the waiting list for a pair of the pioneering goggles? Couldn't care less about multi-screen productivity, but always have the newest kit before anyone else? Or dreaming of days when you can dash out of the door for a lunchtime drink/shopping spree without any of your colleagues noticing because they're so wired into their productivity vision? Talking of wired, here's an explanatory piece from the publication Wired for those interested in further info on this new tech development: https://www.wired.com/story/nimo-planet-nimo-glasses/
