26 | Ignitemag.ca | November | December 2015 good to know good to know Tech Support by Christine Wong Quit fumbling and forget- ting when it comes to conference calls. This app automatically retrieves the dial-in and authentication code details right before each conference call, so all you have to do is touch one button to connect. It also synchs with your smartphone calendar to remind you about confer- ence calls. Available for iOS and Android, the free app includes up to 10 conference calls per month and works with major conferencing solutions like WebEx and Lync. Hip Hoodie Get cozy and save room in your carry-on by slipping on the Baubax travel hoodie. Ear buds, a sleep mask and an inflatable neck pillow are built right in. Special pockets fit your smartphone, tablet, sunglasses and device charger while the breast pocket is (yes, seri- ously) a neoprene drink holder. The zipper doubles as a pen and stylus. If the 100 per cent cotton, machine washable hoodie doesn't grab you for $149 US, try the windbreaker, bomber jacket or blazer versions on for size at www.baubax.com. Virtual reality (VR): Totally immerses users in a virtual environment. Everything they see, hear and feel is computer generated. Requires special glasses, headsets, helmets or gloves. Mobile Day http://www.mobileday.com 52 Do you know your AR from your VR? Augmented real- ity (AR): Typically, an app superim- poses virtual 3-D visuals over the 'real world' when it's viewed on a smartphone or tablet screen.
