Industrial Applications for See-Through Head-Mounted Display

Room: N-123 | Time: 1:30pm - 1:50pm

With the advent of picoprojectors, tiny imaging systems that can be made as small as a grain of rice, and the availability of multi-core mobile CPUs that can run 3D engines and wi-fi on batteries weighing only a few grams, we are now at the dawn of an exciting new era in personal computing - enter the see-through head-mounted display (HMD). Today, in industrial environments, see-through HMD offers tremendous promise for improving the efficiency and safety of mission critical applications, by merging our digital and physical points-of-view into a single, integrated perspective. In this talk, I'll take a look at the benefits and challenges associated with building HMD solutions for enterprise, citing lessons learned in V!ZOR's ongoing effort to design and deliver HMD solutions for mission-critical applications in supply chain management, health care, and oil-field services.
