RealWear, as the name might suggest, is a wearables company. “Wearable whats?” you may be wondering. Well, wearable computers. Their flagship product is a wearable Android tablet—essentially a mobile computer you wear on your head.
“Won’t that look weird?” I wonder aloud.
RealWear CEO Andy Lowery explains.
“First start with Google Glass.” Viz. Google Glass, the glasses with the heads-up display floating in front of one of your eyes. “You start there. But our device is very different from Google Glass in that it’s much more rugged.” Water-proof, dust-proof, with a much larger battery, RealWear is a cyborgish augmentation you can really take anywhere. It’s bigger. It weighs more. It has a wide VGA display. So instead of being mounted on glasses, like Google Glass, it’s attached to a hard hat, or ball cap. But the added size and weight lets it do more: “anything that you could run on an Android tablet that you’d typically be holding in your hand, and driving with your fingers.”
