Lenovo and RealWear to Bring Assisted Reality Solutions to Enterprise Customers
Lenovo and RealWear 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 optimized, 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 among the world’s most 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.
With the addition of the RealWear HMT-1, 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 VR with the Lenovo Mirage VRS3 all-in-one VR headset.
“To fulfill 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,” said Jon Pershke, Vice President of Strategy and Emerging Business Development, Lenovo Intelligent Devices Group. “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 drive unprecedented ROI.”
“Our collaboration with Lenovo will provide a rich and powerful experience for frontline workers while enhancing worker safety,” said Sanjay Jhawar, Co-founder and President, RealWear. “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.”
