The 'SlackAlert' is a communication device that connects to the workplace chat platform Slack.
Designed by Viget, the SlackAlert is a button that can send pre-programmed digital messages when pressed. The communication device sends that message to all of the employees in the workplace. Described as "a pinnacle of physical and digital fusion," this device takes away the need for communication devices for reoccurring office situations and events. The button was designed for situations such as "rescuing coworkers stuck in stairwells, refilling the coffee machine, or signalling the beginning of a party."
This device was created using 3D printing technology and would be an excellent communicative tool for work environments in which employee safety may occasionally be at risk.
