Zebra just introduced a new product that is of interest to us here at EMP and might be of interest to you. For perspective, Zebra introduces new products all the time, but they don’t show up in our Newsletter all the time. The WS50 Wearable Ring Terminal has some interesting features that make it worth the highlight.
What is so interesting about this product is the fact that it is a wearable ring scanner and a wearable terminal all rolled up into one device. These type of devices are always interesting to us, but our first question is what can our customers do with this form factor and how will they benefit.
The terminal portion of this is a full Android device which is good. One of the issues with this device is the very small screen size. However, there are many use cases where the amount of screen real-estate needed is small and having both hands free to work with is a benefit.
One of these use cases that we immediately thought of is our Mobile Match Code. That application does not need much screen size and since the device is Android, the rapid development tool MCL that we use for those applications will work for the device. We even put together a YouTube video showing you this application running on the WS50.
Since we are so customer focused, our minds next turned to how to help customers deal with this small screen size and getting to work with their business software. We have many options and also have some demo gear that you can check out.
So, if this new wearable scanning terminal from Zebra is of interest to you, contact us today!
