VentureBeat reports that the company who first put toothpaste in squeezable tubes, Colgate-Palmolive, is rolling out HMT-1s in 20 manufacturing facilities in 11 countries.

The manufacturer’s decision to bring the headset to hundreds of its mechanics and engineers is significant — but only a first step. 

“Colgate-Palmolive’s global deployment signifies that industrial wearable computing has crossed the chasm into mainstream manufacturing companies,” said RealWear CEO Andy Lowery.

RealWear HMT-1 will become the global standard for hands-free computing at Colgate-Palmolive.

Initially, the company will use the headsets for several plant floor-specific applications: hands-free machine troubleshooting, voice communications for support and training, plus creating and retrieving videos and documents.  

“Looking ahead,” said global engineering VP Warren Pruitt, “we see an opportunity to use this tool beyond the plant floor for improved performance and new efficiencies.”
