May 29, 2023 – Wisear, a provider of neural interface-powered earphones, and DigiLens, a manufacturer of advanced augmented reality (AR) devices, have today announced a strategic partnership aimed at establishing their position as leading providers of AR solutions for organizations and frontline workers. The partnership will be officially unveiled at Augmented World Expo (AWE) this week.
Augmented reality technology is increasingly being recognized as a valuable tool for improving the safety, efficiency and productivity of frontline workers in a variety of industries. By overlaying digital information on the real-world environment, AR solutions can enhance collaboration, communication and decision-making in critical situations. However, to fully realize the potential of AR, it’s essential to have secure and seamless interfaces that enable workers to interact with the technology in a natural and intuitive way, according to Wisear.
As a result, the two companies have formed a strategic partnership to offer AR solutions for organizations and frontline workers, leveraging DigiLens’ newest ARGO smart glasses and Wisear’s neural interface-powered earphones for seamless AR control. Together, the companies will aim to establish themselves as leading providers of AR solutions for the next generation of frontline workers across various industries.
The combined power of DigiLens’ smart glasses and Wisear’s smart earphones will enable frontline workers to harness XR technology in demanding situations, ensuring seamless, safe and efficient operations. The partnership will also highlight the numerous use cases of AR/XR technology across industries, from manufacturing and logistics to healthcare and education.
According to the companies, with the integration of Wisear and DigiLens technologies, field service workers can access crucial information and guidance without having to physically handle devices or take their eyes off the task at hand, improving safety and efficiency. Similarly, healthcare professionals can benefit from hands- and voice-free interaction with patient records and imaging tools, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and increasing the speed of diagnosis and treatment.
“DigiLens and Wisear share a common vision of using cutting-edge technology to revolutionize the way frontline workers work,” said Chris Pickett, CEO of DigiLens. “We believe that our ARGO smart glasses, coupled with Wisear’s neural interface-powered earphones, will provide frontline workers with the tools they need to work seamlessly and safely.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with DigiLens to bring our neural interface technology to the forefront of the AR industry,” said Yacine Achiakh, CEO of Wisear. “Together, we are building the future of seamless AR control for frontline workers, and we cannot wait to demo the potential of our joint solution at AWE.”
DigiLens will introduce its ARGO smart glasses, which provide hands- and voice-free interaction for optimal enterprise XR solutions to the public at AWE this week. Wisear is developing the first-ever smartphone earphones powered by a neural interface, offering high-speed, private and accessible controls – planned to launch in 2024 following on-site testing with select trusted partners. Both products will be available for purchase through DigiLens and other retail channels.
