Six15 Technologies announced its new Tac-Eye AR line of see-through augmented reality video eyewear.
The Tac-Eye AR displays are see-through AR-enabled binocular or monocular systems that offer a 40-degree field of view for use in a wide variety of industrial, medical, commercial, and defense applications. Six15's patented optical see-through system allows users to view the real world while simultaneously viewing relevant computer generated information, graphics and alerts.
As part of this new offering, Six15 Technologies has partnered with APX Labs to provide the core software solutions that drive the augmented reality environment. APX Labs' truAR software manages the user experience and interaction with the Tac-Eye, connects the device in real-time to other users and systems, and manages how custom applications run on the Tac-Eye AR. Upcoming software developer kits will allow rapid adoption of the technology by developers, the company says.
"Smart Glasses enable people to get work done better, faster, cheaper and safer. These hands-free real-time mobile applications are incredibly powerful and applicable to almost every enterprise. Just a year ago, none of this was possible, but breakthroughs in the hardware that Six15 is building combined with our software make it real today," said Brian Ballard, CEO of APX Labs. "We are incredibly excited about the road ahead and working with Six15 to bring Smart Glasses to market."
