It's been an exciting summer exploring innovation with Samsung.

Back in June, I had the chance to check out FedEx's new, first-of-its-kind Samsung-authorized repair center in the heart of New York City.

I also talked to Samsung director of marketing Jon Wong about the costs associated with losing a phone for both the individual and businesses. 

Can't imagine a reality without your phone? (Me either.) So I spoke with Accenture's wearable technology leader and pioneer Brent Blum about the best use cases for virtual reality and augmented reality.

And when it comes to VR, it's no surprise that Samsung leads the pack.

In July, I got to tour Samsung Bus, which features everything from the Samsung DeX station to the Knox security platform to virtual reality.

The bus will be going on a nationwide tour to spotlight Samsung's latest products and business solutions, so stay on the look out!

Talking AR, VR with Samsung

Last month, I traveled with Samsung to San Diego for the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit, where I had the opportunity to chat with a dozen technology experts to discuss the impact of virtual reality, augmented reality and wearables in business.

The future of VR is bright, from improving public safety to training employees and everything in between. Check out my full interview with Librestream Technologies' Jereme Pitts and Samsung's Gabriel Murphy. 

And with VR comes great possibilities. Bharat Saini, founder and chief technologist of Hipaax, shared with me some of the advantages of wearables in the workplace. (Fun fact: Samsung recently announced its partnership with Hipaax to advance the incorporation of smartwatches in the workplace.)

I also spoke with Samsung's Wonjin Kim about what makes smartwatches help businesses run efficiently. Still don't believe the benefits of wearables? Just watch.
