Forbes has an article highlighting the Vocera Communications System, a VOIP solution that basically provides a real-life version of the Star Trek communicator badge.

Just as Captain Picard would do, Vocera badge wearers can touch the slim device they wear on their uniforms, say who they want to talk to and, assuming that person is wearing his badge, be connected.
