The San Francisco Bay Area is known as the "Innovation Capital of the World" for its many examples of leading technologies and unique business models. Tapping into the collaborative and entrepreneurial spirit of the region, Fujitsu established the Open Innovation Gateway (OIG) to promote collaboration with customers and business partners and to facilitate truly innovative practices.

The gesture-based screen manipulation technology used by Tom Cruise in the film, “Minority Report,” is being introduced to the modern day workplace and completely reinventing collaboration. The CEO of Oblong Industries and former science advisor to Steven Speilberg, aims to reinvent workplace collaboration with Oblong’s Mezzanine 360-degree visual immersion technology. Fujitsu, the world’s fifth largest IT provider, currently uses Oblong’s Mezzanine technology to help employees interact in an entirely new, immersive way.

On this episode, I speak with Dave Marvit, Fujitsu’s Innovation Strategist and Mohi Ahmed, Director of Open Innovation Gateway. We talk about how the company is using Oblong’s 360-degree visual technology and why it’s so beneficial particularly for telecommuters.
