Sometimes it’s nice to look to the future.
These two videos shows examples of what our Digital Workplace of the future could look like.

As the video says “This technology binds the digital life with physical life”.
Other companies are already jumping on the bandwagon, including Magic Leap (supported by Google).
Are we close to the day where science fiction will become a reality?
