• Lenovo and RealWear to offer assisted reality solutions

        • Lenovo and RealWear, a provider of assisted reality solutions for frontline industrial workers, has announced a global collaboration to bring assisted reality solutions to enterprise customers. The combined technologies and resources of both companies will enable customers to select, deploy and scale right-fit extended reality (XR) technologies worldwide. 

          Under the collaboration, Lenovo has certified the RealWear HMT-1 devices for use on its ThinkReality platform, expanding frontline workers’ access to optimised, hands-free 2D applications. Additionally, Lenovo will offer RealWear’s HMT-1 family of assisted reality wearable devices through its global sales network. 

          A cloud and device-agnostic solution for enterprise deployments, ThinkReality is a powerful and flexible enterprise XR software. The platform provides enterprise customers with advanced development and management tools, including a software development kit, content and device management services, enterprise integration, a robust developer portal, and ready-to-use microservices.   

          ThinkReality also includes turn-key certified solutions for vital XR applications from remote assistance, guided workflow and training to remote data visualisation and design collaboration. Customers using devices on the ThinkReality platform have access to these common use case applications immediately without needing to spend additional time or money on content development.  

          With the addition of the RealWear HMT-1, Lenovo’s ThinkReality platform now supports a full range of solutions across the XR spectrum. These XR solutions include the ‘reality first, digital second’ experience of assisted reality through the RealWear HMT-1 to the ‘immersive but not isolating’ experience of the new ThinkReality A3 smart glasses and the ‘world focused ThinkReality A6 with transparent lenses, as well as the fully immersive experience of virtual reality (VR) with the Lenovo Mirage VRS3 all-in-one VR headset. 

          Jon Pershke, Vice President of Strategy and Emerging Business Development, Lenovo Intelligent Devices Group said, “to fulfil the ThinkReality vision of making it easier than ever to build, deploy, and manage enterprise XR solutions at scale, Lenovo is collaborating with a growing ecosystem of hardware and software solution providers. The addition of RealWear’s field-proven monocular device on the ThinkReality platform means we’ll be able to support an even larger and growing number of enterprise customers as they equip industrial frontline workers with cutting-edge XR technology that improves workplace safety and drives unprecedented ROI.”  

          Sanjay Jhawar, Co-founder and President, RealWear added, “our collaboration with Lenovo will provide a rich and powerful experience for frontline workers while enhancing worker safety. We’re excited to help bring the benefits of HMT-1 assisted reality solutions to Lenovo’s enterprise customers globally, leveraging a strong ecosystem of collaboration and productivity software tools for digital transformation.  Additionally, we look forward to expanding our cooperation with Lenovo in the future across a range of end-user experience-driven initiatives.”
