There has been an upsurge in interest among businesses, brands and manufacturers regarding augmented reality (AR) technology. One company taking advantage of this interest is ThirdEye Gen, who have worked for some time with the US Department of Defence on AR applications and are now turning their attention to AR for the enterprise market.
ThirdEye Gen are planning to showcase its X1 SmartGlasses product at the Augmented World Expo (AWE) in California at the end of May, 2018 along with a new software platform.
The X1 SmartGlasses will be compatible with ThirdEye Gen’s custom ‘See What I See’ enterprise AR software, which allows users to experience the point-of-view of another person through audio and video, with useful information placed in their field-of-view in order to help with complex tasks.
The AR SmartGlasses paired with the software allows employees on sight to receive precise mentoring, training and instructions from a specialist remote operator, which removes the need for every employee to be a ‘jack of all trades’ and allows specialists to save time and money on costly site visits.
ThirdEye Gen say its current customers such as OneBonsai Inc and BAN3 Engineering Inc have already seen a 30% reduction in employee training time by implementing this feature.
“We’re in conversation with businesses from over a dozen verticals, including Fortune 500 companies, about our X1 Smart Glasses and remote assistance AR platform” said Nick Cherukuri, President at ThirdEye Gen. “We give organizations a straight-out-of-the-box solution and can customize the hardware and software that meets their specific needs.”
The ThirdEye Gen platform gives users hands-free user interface and what equates to a 90” HD screen at 10 feet, along with a 13 Megapixel camera and replaceable batteries so spare batteries can be charged whilst the SmartGlasses are in use.
The company will be showcasing its products at Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara, California from 30th May until 1st June, 2018. The ThirdEye Gen booth can be found at Booth 715. VRFocus will continue to bring you the latest news on new AR products and services.
