Click through our gallery for some eye popping ways to sell more and make your shop stand out.
Photographed above: Quirky. We spotted this video name tag/business card being worn by the representative of a company called Ozibadge. It's 2.8in in size and the company claims it will run up to 10 hours per charge. When we asked what you’d use it for, we were told restaurants might use it on waiters to show-off menu items. Ozibadge also thinks it might be good for casinos and nightclubs. Interesting fact: the badge can also play audio.
