Extreme Networking

The swivelCard is a paper USB business card with full analytics and remote access. The embedded USB technology allows the loading of pictures, videos, presentations and websites for the recipient to interact with. This can be done individually for each specific card. Analytics via back-end software lets users get information on how each card is being used. Each set contains 200 business cards. Standard sets allow for custom name and contact information, and eight layout designs to choose from.  

Shiny Chrome

The Acer Chromebook 13 is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processor and features a 13.3-inch display and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The laptop uses an NVIDIA Tegra K1 4-Plus-1 quad-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU and is available in two options — one with a full HD display with 1920x1080 resolution and another model with a 1366x768 display. Laptop models are available with either a full HD 1920x1080 display that shows video in lifelike 1080p resolution (and has up to 11 hours of battery life) or a 1366x768 resolution display that provides 13 hours of battery life.

Hot Seat  

Herman Miller’s Mirra 2 Chair has optional fixed or adjustable arms and seat depth, as well as adjustable lumbar support. The chair’s butterfly back is polymer joined with fabric to provide dynamic support and proper body alignment. The chair’s back shell also maximizes breathability; the fabric is designed to avoid heat and moisture build-up. Mirra 2 is 25 percent lighter than the original Mirra, yet can accommodate up to 350 pounds. Casters are available for hard floors or carpet, with or without quiet roll technology. The Mirra 2 is 93 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.
