Vuzix and SAP partners to bring augmented reality to its M100 Smart Glass
The smart glassdevelopers over at Vuzix Corporation announced earlier today that they have been working with enterprise application software provider, SAP, to develop "cutting edge" augmented reality applications for data collection, warehousing, and smartphones. Vuzix will demo the said application using its M100 Smart Glasses at an event on May 15th.
Vuzix says that there will be two different demonstrations - one will be a real-time augmented reality warehouse “picking” application and the other, a realtime data and video collection from the factory floor to remote sites.
In case you didn't know, the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses is essentially a hands-free display for smartphones. It is powered by an OMAP 4 processor and graphics engine, and it is running Android 4.01. It has 4GB of memory, and it also comes with a microSD slot and a battery that can reportedly last up to 8 hours.
