In Augmented Reality News
January 10, 2023 – DigiLens Inc., a provider of head-worn holographic smart glasses and waveguide technology, has today announced the launch of ARGO, the company’s first purpose-built, standalone augmented reality (AR)/XR device designed for enterprise and industrial-lite workers.
ARGO smartglasses feature DigiLens’ crystal waveguides that offer minimal eye glow and a small footprint, and are daylight bright for inside and outside usage, which the company stated results in a more user-friendly and socially acceptable product. ARGO helps to improve communication and collaboration by creating a digitally-enabled workforce across a range of industries, empowering frontline workers from the field to the operating room.
“ARGO is the future of wearable computing,” said Chris Pickett, CEO of DigiLens Inc. “We are proud to launch the device the market has been asking for, and waiting for. ARGO will open up the next generation of mobile computing and voice and be the first true AR device to be deployed at mass scale. By helping people connect and collaborate in the real – not merely virtual – world, ARGO will deliver productivity gains across sectors and improve people’s lives.”
Featuring a rugged industrial and enterprise construction, ARGO is designed to be hands-free and body position independent with voice and gaze recognition. The unit’s 48MP camera offers photorealistic image quality, while its multiple microphones can pick up a user’s voice in noisy environments. ARGO’s connectivity options allow the device to be used virtually anywhere, and its integrated DigiOS compatibility allows it to keep pace with the future of mobile computing, according to DigiLens.
With the launch of ARGO, DigiLens is hoping to deliver smart glasses with scalability and quality at a cost-effective price point for a range of industries, including healthcare, industrial, logistics, telecommunications, military and defense.
ARGO has been designed to help increase worker safety via increased situational awareness through real-time connectivity to environmental and other sensor technology, as well as help users work smarter by blending the digital and physical worlds with access to real-time data visualizations.
DigiLens stated that in addition to increasing workforce productivity, reducing down-time, and minimizing delays through remote collaboration, its ARGO smart glasses also help to extend workforce availability and capacity via remote instruction and real-time supervision. As a result, the device can also help to reduce costs by overcoming the barriers of time, distance, and training to deliver expertise when and where it’s needed most.
