We mentioned before that our new AR development platform is in the making. It hasn’t only generated quite a lot of attention at the recent Slush and Tech in Asia startup fairs. We often have people interested in what we do visiting our office for a demo. Last week, for example, Helmut Wenisch, Head of Corporate Technology at Siemens K.K., and Alok Kumar Dubey of Siemens K.K. were visiting us to experience our prototype first-hand. Thank you so much for coming by and the inspiring conversation!
We had the opportunity to try out one of the new augmented reality glasses AiRScouter produced by the Japanese company Brother. We first tried one at a Brother product exhibition here in Tokyo. Although the glasses are a little heavier than normal glasses, they fit quite well and the overlay image is well visible.
We experimented with the glasses a bit and set-up a prototype application for augmented reality using our LPMS-B sensor for head tracking, codename: LpGlass. The video below shows a demo of our LPMS-B IMU attached to the AiRScouter.
Similar to the Google glasses there seem to be a huge number of applications, especially for augmenting task environments for medical procedures, industrial assembly, education etc.
