Tim Harader, VP Business Development

In the plant environment or the field, traditional laptop, tablet or mobile devices are not the solution. Ruggedized wearables can provide real-time, assisted-reality access to information, like the heads-up display in a jet pilot’s helmet, while assuring frontline industrial workers get the full field of vision and free hands to complete their tasks. This (RealWear Navigator™ 500) is not simply new features and capabilities – what RealWear is deploying is an assisted-reality form factor that is part of a generational shift in how industrial companies will service and support their operations in the field and on the factory floor.
