In Augmented Reality News 

January 23, 2024 – Nimo Planet Inc., a company specializing in spatial computing for productivity, has recently unveiled the Nimo 1 Core compact computer and its Nimo Operating System (Nimo OS). Additionally, the company has partnered with Rokid, a provider of augmented reality (AR) technologies, to integrate the Rokid Max Glasses into its portable spatial computing offering.

Nimo Planet stated that the combination of the Nimo 1 Core, Nimo OS and Rokid Max Glasses will bring a personalized, multi-screen expansive workspace experience to today’s hybrid workforce.

The collaboration with Rokid will allow users to pair Rokid Max Glasses with the Nimo Core, and aims to offer users more options across spatial computing. Nimo Planet stated that it envisions a future where users can select their preferred AR glasses to use with Nimo OS.

For enterprise customers, the Nimo Core and Rokid Max Glasses bundle is available for USD $1,499. Individual consumers (limited to the first 1,000 customers) can pre-order the Nimo Core Limited Edition and Rokid Max Glasses, for USD $799, with shipping expected in 6-8 months.

Nimo Planet offers proprietary hardware and software that deliver productivity applications through a pocket-size compute device and a virtual, private display. The company’s technology aims to provide a versatile, desk-free multi-monitor setup, addressing some of the challenges faced by professionals working across multiple locations.

“Nimo Planet’s technology is equipping the modern workforce with the same luxuries of a multi-monitor setup in a desk-free form factor,” said Nimo Planet founder and chief executive officer, Rohildev Nattukallingal. “The current solutions for mobile computing limit our ability to stay efficient, organized, and comfortable while on the go. Nimo is deploying spatial computing in a unique and streamlined way to change this model, providing an enterprise-class workspace that fits in your pocket.”

Roughly the size of an AirPods Pro case, the Nimo 1 Core device comes with Nimo 1 OS, which has a custom rendering system designed to save resources, reducing CPU/GPU and memory usage. With this feature, Nimo OS can enable multiple Android Apps, Unity Apps, and Web Apps to be positioned simultaneously in varying depths, according to the company.

This allows for up to six high-fidelity 3D screens to be rendered within the physical world. Additionally, Nimo OS supports Stereotype Videos and Photos. The device is powered by a Qualcomm XR2 8-core processor and offers 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, WiFi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

Additionally, Nimo OS is capable of supporting Mac and Windows applications through USB-C or WiFi. Users can connect Nimo 1 Core with Mac or Windows laptops and extend up to 5 screens to Nimo Workspaces. The company also noted that it has been granted a U.S. utility patent for its Nimo OS Spatial Workspace and Multi-Window Architecture.

On the AR glasses-side of the partnership, Rokid’s ‘Rokid Max Glasses’ offer 1080p resolution per eye on Micro-OLED lenses that create a 215” virtual screen, with a brightness of up to 600 nits. Weighing only 75g and certified by TÜV Rheinland for eye comfort, the glasses are designed for extended wear without causing eye fatigue.

For device interaction, Nimo Core incorporates a trackpad and an ‘Air Mouse’ handheld pointing device that facilitates access to common productivity applications available on Nimo OS. The system enables intuitive navigation of popular workplace applications and customized screen adjustments, and supports input devices like a Bluetooth mouse, keyboard, and trackpad, according to the company.

Nimo Planet is working on incorporating generative AI into Nimo OS to further enhance user productivity. Built on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and Linux foundation, Nimo OS aims to leverage the stability and versatility of the Android ecosystem to create an intuitive and powerful workspace experience.
