I remember getting my first set of walkie talkies.
That was SO cool. I could give one to a friend, and we could roam the neighborhood talking to each other.
It added a whole new dimension to our play.
Every summer, I spent the mornings at the swimming club and the afternoons playing outside with friends or mowing lawns.
I was a swimmer, so my morning swim team work-outs started early (6 AM) and ended @ 8. Most of us stayed at the pool til lunch time, so we had a good, solid 4 hours of playing . . . We had Diving competitions, our own races, underwater endurance contests, ping pong tournaments . . . and one of our favorites was Marco Polo.
It’s been a LOT of years since I’ve even thought of those days until a few days ago when I was in a business building workshop.
The Workshop was at Pinnacle Bank (A great learning Organization that invests in the success of their banking clients), and the participants were @ 20 small business owners.
Essentially, this is video texting.
Not only does the message come through clearly, it’s multidimensional because you can hear voice tonality and see facial expressions and body language.
My team doesn’t know it yet, but they are also going to be using it VERY soon.
