ThirdEye Gen Releases X1 Augmented Reality Smart Glasses with Enterprise AR Software


Product: ThirdEye's X1 Smart Glasses
Top Line: ThirdEye Gen announced the release ThirdEye's X1 Smart Glasses with Enterprise Solutions Platform and the creation of the ThirdEye App Store.
The X1 is a fully integrated product whose sleek form factor and user interface allow the user to easily wear it while completing tasks. It incorporates the latest sensors, chips and a powerful optics design that allows users to experience a HD display that is the equivalent to a 90'' screen at 10 feet.
Close Up: ThirdEye's AR Software provides a full Enterprise Augmented Reality platform that includes live audio, video, P.O.V. AR data communication between remote users- a "See What I See" application. This app is hands-free—the user controls via their head-motion which is based on ThirdEye's proprietary software and provides an intuitive AR interface that allows on-site personnel to collaborate with remotely located experts. Its 3-Screen interface allows the remote user to have a clear Field of View while rotating between AR screens via head-motion. A secure cloud based architecture enables the entire session to be archived for later reference. This app directly contributes to improved first time repair rates and to more cost-effective operations. The software is modular based on the end-user's needs: law enforcement inputs real-time image recognition capabilities while enterprises and universities stream a remote user's live point of view with annotations.
"The ThirdEye App Store will help spur Augmented Reality App development," said Nick Cherukuri, founder of ThirdEye. "Our X1 Smart Glasses can switch between AR and VR, and we wanted to create a platform that benefited the developers creating the best AR/VR applications."
Vital Stats: The ThirdEye App Store lets developers submit their Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality applications. Developers can submit either a free app or a paid app and receive a percentage of every paid app download. The X1 Smart Glasses run on Android, creating a platform for the worldwide community of AR/VR developers.
