SAN FRANCISCO – 2 JANUARY, 2014: Metaio, the world leader in augmented reality (AR) software and solutions, will be the main augmented reality exhibitor and participant in this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. Thomas Alt, Metaio CEO & Co-Founder will share his insight in a special executive panel (January 8, 2014, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. at LVCC, North Hall N261) and Metaio showcase next-generation consumer and enterprise augmented reality on the latest wearable devices, including those from partners EPSON and Vuzix.
With smartwatches and Google Glass projected to sell tens of millions of units in the next few years, 2014 will begin a new era of wearable computing devices, all of which can be enhanced by visualization technology like Augmented Reality. Metaio, the Augmented Reality Company, will deliver live demonstrations with these devices on the exhibition floor at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show.
Metaio will showcase both consumer-focused and enterprise augmented reality apps on the latest wearable computing platforms like the EPSON Moverio and the Vuzix M-100. Among the demonstrations shown will be a 3-D maintenance app for a Mitsubishi Electric HVAC unit; a demo that allows potential car buyers to switch out components on a vehicle; and “Mirage”, the first AR Browser for wearable computing.
In addition, CEO and Co-Founder of Metaio Dr. Thomas Alt will share his insight on the AR industry, reinforced by over ten years working in the space, in a panel entitled, “Augmented Reality: The Next Big Thing or Information Overload?”.
“Wearable computing doesn’t make sense without augmented reality,” said Alt. “Metaio is creating methods of interaction that enhance vision and make experiencing the digital more intuitive and more natural. The first step is transporting that information right before your eyes in a hands-free interface.”
