How do electronic tags and wearable readers help get the job done? If an engineer were to make a mistake operating city gas equipment, the results might be disastrous. This is why various measures are taken to ensure proper handling and repair. But even the most experienced engineer can make mistakes. Enter the Smart Assistant System. With this system, an electronic tag is embedded in the equipment. A wearable reader in the engineer's uniform then allows remote assistance and monitoring to prevent mistakes. And if tags were embedded in medicine cabinets in a pharmacy, rudimentary mistakes could be prevented during medicine preparation. At home, if you followed cooking preparations stored, for example, in tags in your ingredients box, you could prepare dishes like a professional chef.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
