Vancouverbased RealWear partners with Chinese utility State Grid

first_imgVancouver-based RealWear announced this week it has been selected to partner with the State Grid Corporation of China for a pilot program to implement RealWear’s hands-free computer hardware.State Grid is the largest utility company in the world and the second-largest overall company by revenue, according to Fortune’s Global 500 list. The Chinese state-owned firm supplies power to an estimated 1.1 billion consumers and employs more than 900,000 people.RealWear produces headsets that respond to voice controls and feature an adjustable arm with a display in front of the user’s eye, allowing for hands-free computer interaction while on the job. The company’s products look a bit like more rugged versions of the Google Glass headset debuted in 2014.Unlike Google’s general-purpose headset, RealWear’s two headset models — the HMT-1 and the HMT-1Z1 — are designed specifically for industry workers who need both hands free while on the job, such as while climbing ladders or operating machinery.In the case of the power industry, electrical workers need to wear insulated gloves while working on live power lines, but those same gloves prevent them from using touch-screen devices, which require contact with a conductive material.last_img read more
