Plantronics: Programmable headset Telephone headsets are hardly new, but Plantronics has elevated that mundane device to the level of wearable computer technology. Its Voyager Legend UC integrates with a user’s other hardware and software. On the simplest level, the headset identifies incoming callers and announces them verbally via integration with the user’s address book. A spoken command answers the call or sends it to voicemail. Using the company’s APIs, developers can write more advanced applications like this: A call comes in via an iOS or Android device; the headset checks to see if that person is in the user’s Salesforce database. If so, that information is automatically pulled up on the user’s PC; no more fumbling around while the caller waits.
