Smart glasses with attitude

|5 April 2017|


Industry has been at the front of the queue in adopting augmented, virtual and mixed reality technologies – as they have proved they can help companies work smarter and quicker.

The ODG (Osterhout Design Group) is a leader in the development of smart glasses that incorporate these technologies and it has released a new model designed to stand up to the toughest of environments.

ODG’s  R- 7HL (Hazardous Location) is built to military standard specs and offers those working in extreme conditions the freedom to work hands-free while benefitting from the latest technology support.

“ODG built the R-7HL to answer the demands and needs of customers who operate in extreme environments,” said Ralph Osterhout, ODG CEO. “R-7HL brings a durable, hands- free, wearable computing platform to professionals in oil exploration and production, energy, mining, utilities, chemical production and pharmaceuticals and enables heads-up, hands-free checklists, guided assistance tools and manuals, remote assistance support, and the delivery of real time notifications and alerts. It keeps users safer and helps them be more efficient and will further help to change the way work is done.”
