By now, we hope you’ve heard our news coming out of CES 2017: DAQRI Smart Glasses™ Developer Edition are here. We’re just as excited as you are, but before we get ahead of ourselves by discussing a future with AR Everywhere, and wearables in the hands of every worker, let’s cover the basics.
What are DAQRI Smart Glasses?
Unlike DAQRI Smart Helmet™, which is built to both protect and provide AR work instructions across industrial environments, DAQRI Smart Glasses are built to accomplish just as much, but in new sectors, including lean manufacturing, engineering, and construction. The streamlined design of the Smart Glasses combines portability with access to high-quality rendering, allowing the ability to plug and play into any workstation you choose.
Our smart glasses expand upon the most powerful aspects of DAQRI Smart Helmet in a form factor that extends usage from the industrial plant to the control room and office settings.
DAQRI Smart Glasses were designed for comfort. We know the physical requirements of working 40+ hours a week anywhere can be tiresome, and we had no intention of adding any extra weight to the load you’re already carrying. With 400 grams evenly distributed throughout the device, we keep extra weight off your shoulders. What’s more, our glasses will be able to connect to desktop workstations for photo-realistic visualization, allowing an easy transition from stationary work to work on the go.
Speaking of safe… We care about your protection in more ways than one, which is why we included a fingerprint sensor. This allows teams to identify who is using DAQRI Smart Glasses and where, and most importantly, to secure your team’s information. With built-in storage for up to 12 hours of 1080p color video, you have all the power and information you need right at your fingertips — literally.
Like DAQRI Smart Helmet, DAQRI Smart Glasses Developer Edition are supported by a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ M7 Processor and an Intel® RealSense™ Camera LR200. This top-of-the-line suite provides the structure for high quality multimedia and AR applications to thrive, making DAQRI Smart Glasses the quintessential work tool.
They’ve got it all.
Designed to work indoors and outdoors, this comfortable wearable provides all the power and capabilities you need to perform top-notch work: Data visualization that provides workers distributed information and situational awareness outside of the control room, intuitive augmented work instructions to help users understand processes quickly and perform accurately, and remote expert capabilities, assisting workers to see their colleague’s point of view and elevate their skill level.
And if you’re a fan of accessories, rest assured. DAQRI Smart Glasses come equipped with a Bluetooth keyboard, USB-C hub, and several USB-C power supply cables.
But who is it for?
We know that innovative minds all over the world will find unique and amazing ways to utilize DAQRI Smart Glasses, but we’ve envisioned it thriving in several fields, including: Medical, Aviation and Aerospace, Architecture and AEC, and Lean Manufacturing.
What else should I know?
According to Forrester Research Inc., the spend on smart glasses will increase from $6 million today to over $3.6 billion by 2025. We’ll see smart glasses in the hands of over 14.4 million U.S. workers. Smart glasses will be an integral component of the future of work, as computers are today. So what are you waiting for?
