News: Smart helmet will examine the workings of objects using real-time overlay.
Augmented reality company Daqri along with Intel has introduced a smart helmet which has a set of glasses built into the headgear that will provide x-ray-like vision to the wearer.
The headgear uses a RealSense 3D camera to provide the x-ray-like vision.
The Daqri Smart Helmet is designed for industrial use as it will connect the worker to their environment by effectively examining the workings of objects using real-time overlay of information, such as wiring diagrams, schematics and problem areas that need fixing.
The device is backed by augmented reality software DAQRI’s Intellitrack which will allow the wearer to gather information about the world around them for the most precise display and tracking possible.
It is powered by the 6th Gen Intel Core M 7 processor and Intel RealSense technology.
The low weight helmet has industrial grade IMU used with VIZ NAV camera for calculating the helmet position.
The glass is anti-scratch and anti-reflective, with the creators claiming that the helmet consumes low power even when used constantly.
DAQRI founder Brian Mullins said: "Intel is transforming industry with its advanced technologies. Intel powers some of the world’s most impressive products and, with the addition of its latest processor and RealSense technology into DAQRI SMART HELMET, we introduce the most advanced human-machine interface to the market.
"We have already demonstrated how the use of Augmented Reality hardware and software solves problems for our partners and, with the addition of Intel technology; we are supercharging DAQRI SMART HELMET so that we can continue to drive the future of work."
