CHICAGO, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- InMovement, the pioneer of Productive Wellbeing™, will open the doors to a new Activated Workplace™ Living Lab on Monday, June 13, during NeoCon 2016, one of the largest and most recognized trade shows in the commercial interiors industry.

InMovement's complete line of Activated Workplace products will be available for trial in the Living Lab, including InMovement's Standing Desk, winner of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ Award. The showroom also houses the company's design studio and provides hands-on access to interactive prototypes.

With its Living Lab Grand Opening, InMovement also announces two new Activated Workplace products available for preorder during the show:

  • The InMovement Servo™ is an active seating solution that converts into an auxiliary standing-height work surface with the flip of a seat. This multi-purpose stool supports a range of healthy postures and encourages movement in a variety of workplace applications.
  • And, the InMovement Pivot Table™ makes standing meetings or collaborative workshops second nature, by offering a range of configurations that support fluidity and movement. The conference table's pivoting wings can also be repositioned to support standard arrangements like a board table, L-shape, Z-shape or box, allowing for greater choice of room formation.

"The work environment has evolved into a sedentary enabler and we continue to work longer hours than ever, leaving the workforce unhealthy and disengaged," said InMovement General Manager Dan Wille. "At InMovement, we asked ourselves, 'how can we integrate healthy behavior into the workday without hurting productivity?' Through this process, we created the Activated Workplace vision and a line of products that make the workplace default-active.  This Living Lab brings that vision to life, so that people can try it for themselves."

Located at 228 W. Kinzie Street, Chicago, Ill., InMovement will celebrate the grand opening of the Living Lab and welcome NeoCon attendees during a 'Sample the Movement Grand Opening Brunch' on Tuesday, June 14 from 11 a.m.1 p.m.

"We believe that we are at a cultural tipping point, where work policies and workplaces will apply active design principles to enable sustainable work culture," said Paul Siebert, director of design and innovation for InMovement. "We're pioneering the next generation way to work, integrating a wide range of movement, naturally, within the work process."

InMovement piloted its products and services for more than a year with Fortune 500 companies, law firms, small private businesses and wellness companies looking for new ways to incorporate movement into the workplace. Through its trials, InMovement has collected user feedback on the Productive Wellbeing approach that shows significant increases in energy and productivity, with reductions in stress, pain, discomfort and absenteeism. Employees who have participated in InMovement trials report increased job satisfaction and an influence on other healthy behaviors as a result of working differently.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Docker containers have brought great opportunities to shorten the deployment process through continuous integration and the delivery of applications and microservices. This applies equally to enterprise data centers as well as the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jari Kolehmainen, founder and CTO of Kontena, discussed solutions and benefits of a deeply integrated deployment pipeline using technologies such as container management platforms, Docker containers, and the drone.io Cl tool.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, will introduce two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a...
yperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....
With Cloud Foundry you can easily deploy and use apps utilizing websocket technology, but not everybody realizes that scaling them out is not that trivial.

He will demonstrate a cloud-native Spring Boot app running in Cloud Foundry and communicating with clients over websocket protocol that can be easily scaled horizontally and coordinate...
IT organizations are moving to the cloud in hopes to approve efficiency, increase agility and save money.
