Feel Free to Yell at Your PS4 As Loud As You Want!

September 01, 2013

In 2018 America, a tough new reality exists. Are bulletproof backpacks the answer? No. Of course not. 

It's actually absurd to us that these products sell so well. But even though our team at Bulletproof Workspace is made up of post 9/11 military veterans, we all have children. And we worry, just like you. If we have the capability to do something to help mitigate shooting tragedies, we feel it is our obligation to do so.

Bulletproof backpacks are not the solution to this complex issue. The real solution is layered security for schools, situational awareness, stricter gun laws, and a stronger mental health treatment system in this country.

The bulletproof backpacks and bulletproof blankets we sell make up just one small component of school safety.

Leveraging the state of Michigan's proud heritage of furniture manufacturing, we are currently developing bulletproof school desks that will stop bullets fired from an AR-15, the weapon used in 6 of the last 10 mass shootings.

Backpacks, unfortunately, will not stop an AR-15 bullet. Instead, they offer ballistic protection against most handgun bullets. So, why sell them? We feel that some protection is better than no protection.

Bulletproof Workspace was founded as Modern Workspace Tech Furniture in 2013 by Post 9/11 veteran of both the US Army and US Air Force Wes O'Donnell. Wes is a speaker and veteran advocate having spoken at TEDx, the US Air Force Academy and numerous corporate clients on getting veterans hired.

Today, we specialize in ONE area... and that's NIJ IIIA level ballistic protection enhanced backpacks and bulletproof blankets for schools. Veteran-owned and proudly made in the state of Michigan, every bulletproof backpack is made to order.

The best part about Bulletproof Workspace, is the amazing feedback from our customers. Wes believes that when you sell similar products that can be found elsewhere, outstanding customer service should be your brand!

So, what happens when a group of military veterans decides to open a bulletproof backpack store?  You have a highly efficient operation with most of our products made in the USA!

Microsoft has an uphill battle convincing consumers that the new Xbox One is worth the extra $100 than the PS4 releasing at the same time.  The additional cost will cover the Kinect system required for the more advanced features of the Xbox One.  However, Microsoft has made no indication that they will be releasing a version of the Xbox One without the Kinect for $100 less to compete head on with the PS4. 

It is often overlooked that the Sony system also has technology similar to the Kinect in the PlayStation Eye Camera which can look into your living room and track your movements as well.  In order to level the playing field with the new Xbox One, Sony is adding one additional feature to the Eye Camera, voice recognition and control.

It is important to note that the PlayStation Eye does not come packaged with the PS4 but will cost you an additional $59, still a lower overall total price than Xbox One.  Even though the PlayStation’s motion control system is not quite as advanced as the Kinect, Sony is hoping that offering this device with the voice control feature will make it so consumers do not feel they are missing out on what the Xbox One has to offer. 

You can find several applications that are currently using voice control technology.  For instance, you can tell Siri to make restaurant reservations for a night out, direct your car to play your favorite song from your iPod and tell your friends your next move on the most popular video games.  Voice command technology does exist, however, it has not yet reached its full mainstream potential. With this device, Sony hopes to be on board when it does break through. 

Xbox is pushing the ‘awesome’ factor by promoting its voice command technology, creating a space age feel to the overall experience.  The fact is, if it is a complicated task to register the commands, the tried and true remote control will still remain the method of choice for console control. 

While the idea to add the voice features to the Eye Camera is not a bad one, it does not change the fact that there are relatively few uses with the system using the Eye that actually appear worthwhile.  It is not a given that this added feature will be the deciding factor on whether a Sony owner will purchase this additional device.   The voice command aspect would have to be utterly flawless to give it that extra impact it needs to sell widespread.
