At the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021, the Chinese global firm Lenovo has announced the launch of its new augmented reality (AR) glasses, dubbed ThinkReality A3, which is aiming to target the enterprise market.
According to Lenovo, most of the companies are now keen to invest in smart assisted technologies to enhance efficacy and reduce downtimes. Hence, in this scenario, the new AR glasses can be utilized to offer seamless training and efficient workflows.
The all-new ThinkReality A3 looks like conventional sunglasses and can be folded very easily. Another uniqueness of this AR glass is that it will assist users with the option to view several screens at one time, claims Lenovo. ThinkReality A3 has the ability to superimpose virtual graphics over real world views, but for that, it needs a tethered PC connection or Motorola smartphone.
Versatile, portable, and comfortable, the ThinkReality A3 fits like sunglasses and can be enhanced with industrial frame options for safer and more durable use. Immersive but not isolating, the AR smart glasses are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 Platform for high-quality performance and feature stereoscopic 1080p displays presenting the user with up to 5 virtual displays. An 8MP RGB camera provides 1080p video for remote expert use cases while the dual fish-eye cameras provide room-scale tracking.
The ThinkReality A3 PC Edition tethers to a laptop or mobile workstation to enable users to position multiple, large virtual monitors in their field of view and use Windows software tools and applications. Virtual monitors expand the value of PCs, creating more productivity, privacy, and immersive experiences for industries like finance, architecture, and engineering, as well as for any remote and mobile worker where space and privacy are limited.
Whereas, the Industrial Edition tethers to select Motorola smartphones1 for hands-free, AR-supported tasks in complex work environments. The Industrial Edition is supported by the ThinkReality software platform, which enables commercial customers to build, deploy, and manage mixed reality applications and content on a global scale, with global support.
