Successful ViGO Demonstration To bring out the physical advantages of VIGO and to show off the versatility of the industrial design, here are some steps to follow when demonstrating ViGO: 1. Unzip carrying case and pull out base unit only. 2. Discuss the base - buttons, connections on back, etc. 3. Pull out camera and point out that on desktop configuration, it would just sit on top of the monitor. 4. Pull out the speaker tower and mention that for laptops or desktops without multimedia speakers, the speaker tower is a great feature - and doesn’t take up additional space! 5. Show headset and hook (for headset) 6. Describe that even with the speaker tower configured, the user could easily just carry base, headset and camera for travel.
