As someone that works in electronics as a living, it’s amazing to see how technology has changed and continues to affect our lives. And to be completely honest, I think for the better. From digital memory, to speakers, to music, evolution of the human species have become more reliant around our technology. Studies have shown that 64% of people own a cellphone. You might think: “Is this bad?” I’m here to tell you: “No, it’s not.” Not only do cellphones allow us to connect to our friends and family miles away, but they offer seemingly endless convenience. You can now print pages through your phone, save storage onto a cloud drive wirelessly from your device, play music onto speakers without even needing to plug anything in. The list truly goes on!

One of the latest models of technology is something called virtual reality: a device that goes around your head and enters you into a “real” world of your own. This virtual reality has mainly been designed for the PC, but can also be accessed via your mobile device and Playstation 4 (Playstation VR).

Recently these devices have been dominating sales; Samsung’s VR did $5 million in sales in 2016.

About the Author:

My name is Gerard, co-op student from CKSS here at Hub Creative Group. Last year, John Lyons came to my careers and civics class to do a presentation about what he does for a living, and I was hooked. Everything John said that day related to what my I’ve been dreaming of doing for a long time. I knew that I had to do something about it. Later on in my life I found a job working as a salesman at Staples, I started to grow an intense knowledge about technology and how it operates. Ever since I was grade 8 I knew I wanted to own a business, the question is what kind of business do I want to operate. As I was doing some research I got upset because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I decided to take a Co op course for grade 11. My teacher asked me where I wanted my placement to be and I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go, but then it hit me.. I remembered that presentation that John had shown to my class. My friend and I love photography and I knew that if I wanted to learn anything about this line of work as well as online marketing, it would have to be the HUB group. I haven’t been here for long, but I absolutely love it. Everyone is one great big happy family. And the thing is I want to be part of that family. My goal is to test my skills to the limits to make this the best co op experience for not just myself.. but for the HUB staff as well while we create the best possible service for our customers.
