There's a lot of talk these days about the internet of things, but it's more than just a snappy buzzword. It's reflected in the way cloud technology unifies all of our devices and in how apps with augmented reality technology allow us to bridge the gap between the physical and digital world. But when talking about how this internet of things has the potential to change our educational system and modern businesses, Reflector is the name worth talking about. Developed by Squirrels, Reflector is a collaboration platform that exists on the cloud, allowing students, colleagues, and artists to work more effectively with one another than ever before, whether they're two feet or two hundred miles away. Projecting a presentation on a screen once required complicated cords and cables, dense software platforms, or bulky projectors, but Reflector strips out the complications by allowing you to stream your content directly from your device to any screen. It's built with compatibility in mind as well. There's no universal standard for this sort of streaming technology. Depending on your device or software, Google Cast, Miracast, and AirPlay all vie for control of this space. Reflector folds together all of these formats, allowing you to use a single device as a receiver for any of them. That compatibility extends to the devices that function with Reflector as well. Whether you're looking to broadcast video from your laptop, your iPad, or your Android phone, you have the option, and you don't have to worry about any extensive or frustrating setup. While Reflector is perhaps the most effective and easy to use screen mirroring platform around, it's not simply that. A number of features round out the product and provide it with even more versatility. There's no limit to the amount of devices that you can connect to Reflector, allowing you to create complicated setups, swap easily between different screens, or even work in collaboration with your coworkers by setting up each of your devices on the same screen. This also allows for multiple screens to be juggled through at a time for more elaborate presentations. Reflector also allows for recording. There are a number of cool functions here. You have the ability to connect voice overs to your recordings and embed frames to create a more professional and polished aesthetic. Reflector even allows you to upload your content directly to YouTube, and it's app store ready, so you can get your content out in the public eye and ready to sell in seconds flat. Reflector offers a special version of their software designed for educators. This affordable alternative to their traditional package offers separate platforms for teachers, administrators, and students, so everyone has the tools they need to interact with the materials without having to worry about power dynamics getting out of line.
