With the advent of smart phones and now smart devices which can make calls, connect to internet and then suggest your speed in reaching destinations, the need for people to interact has also jumped up towards attaining “Close Contacts”. Pretty soon, you could have 3D images of your colleague or friend standing in front of you. People will exploit this functionality. It is there in existence. In such a scenario, what if hackers come in front of you while your surfing and say, “I see your account number” Huha! and pretend somebody like Al Pacino? While you may enjoy Al Pacino being imitated, you may see your pants loose on the account detail being seen by the hacker.
Within all these anecdotes, what really happening is that the unified collaborations are slowly moving towards smart phones. Today it originates from mainly a web conferencing toolkit or simply from an online event being called for. Shortly, people will use virtual environments to crunch huge amount of data perhaps or doing voluminous computing tasks. Smart devices may come in. Things will demand for live sounds and images and may evolve a need to collaborate with a group where each will handle a specific task and yet they need to interact together. While the time consumed may be reduced by each individual compared to today, yet there will be a need to interact in the near future.
So… Unified collaboration will evolve from smart devices.
That was a quick jump, was it?
