Helping create better-connected offices, these gadgets are perfect for tech-savvy workers who are looking to take their office to the next level
This next-generation organiser – dubbed as the world’s thinnest tablet – is the brainchild of Norwegian entrepreneur Magnus Wanberg. The low-latency paper tablet, which features a display that looks and feels like paper, allows users to convert handwritten notes into text. Whether scribbling down their next invention or reviewing documents across devices thanks to integrated access to Dropbox and Google Drive, reMarkable boasts added digital powers sans notifications, social media or distracting pop-ups.
In addition to the device, creatives can choose to enhance the experience thanks to a well-designed accessories range consisting of minimalist polymer or leather sleeves as well as a selection of pens and markers that mimic a paper-like experience. Celebrating the beauty of pen and paper, this smart tablet creates an intimate experience that feels positively different to other devices – just you and your thoughts without the distractions from the outside world. And that is something rather remarkable in this hyperconnected world.

With high-definition, 360-degree views of the entire room and automatic zoom that responds to who’s speaking, Meeting Owl Pro creates new possibilities in every kind of workplace, whether helping remote employees participate more fully or encouraging remote students to actively engage – via a web-based video conferencing system which saves time on meeting setup and IT troubleshooting.
As working from anywhere (WFA) creates new opportunities, Owl Labs provides a cost-effective way to hold meetings when employees are distributed across multiple office locations, allowing workers to thrive wherever they are.
