Toshiba unveils Windows-based AR glasses for business use

Today, Toshiba picks up where Glass left off, with a pair of Augmented Reality (AR) glasses powered by a mini Windows 10 PC.

Toshiba has claimed that the AR smart glasses provide live video calls, See-What-I-See, photo and video capture, document viewing, messaging, barcode scanning and workflow instructions to make it ideal for multiple uses. This pint-sized PC connects to the headset via USB-C, and it can be used as a traditional Windows 10 Pro machine when hooked up to a standard display. It has an in-built micro-display unit that can provide a viewing experience that is equivalent to a 4.1-inch display seen at 14 inches and also has an integrated touchpad, gyroscope, Global Positioning System support, accelerometer, 5MP POV camera, speaker and a dual noise-canceling microphone for voice communications. The HMD has an integrated touchpad, GPS, three-axis accelerometer with a gyroscope for head tracking, 5MP POV camera, speaker and dual noise-canceling microphones for voice communications.

To work, the A100 HMD needs to be hooked up to Toshiba's dynaEdge DE-100 Mobile Mini PC.

It is powered by an Intel 6 generation Core m processor with Intel HD graphics support, 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of SATA M2 SSD.

The glasses are aimed at enterprises which have a focus on manufacturing, logistics, and maintenance, and will feature a Skype for Business, as well as an integration of Ubixmax solutions.

"This blend enables us to deliver next-level workflow and efficiency optimisation to frontline workers".

Toshiba's dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses packages will be available in the second quarter with a starting of Dollars 1,899.99 and in various configurations with processor, memory and storage options as well as developer's kits for different industrial applications.
