Happy Holidays from Netria! We hope you had a great holiday season and that you have a safe and healthy start to the new year! Despite the holiday break, sourcing strange and unusual items hasn’t stopped for the Netria team. Here are some of the things we sourced this month:
This is a hands-free tablet! With a headband and eye-level display, this tablet is the new gold standard in wearable technology. Being hands-free, this tablet is voice-operated and has a display that mimics that of a 7” hand-held tablet. Some other features include: noise cancellation, it is PPE-compatible, and has powerful audio with a 3.5mm audio jack for hearing protection. Though currently marketed towards business people and construction workers, this gadget has endless applications!
