There Are A Lot Of Wearable Devices At Augmented World Expo, But HMT-1 Is The Best Headworn Device. Here’s Why.

The Auggie Awards are open for voting!

Over the last few years, the Auggies have gained wide recognition as the premier awards event for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The winners are announced at Augmented World Expo, and this year RealWear HMT-1® has been nominated Best Headworn Device.

But if you still need convincing, here are the Top 3 Reasons to vote HMT-1 Best Headworn Device at Augmented World Expo.

1. It’s The Most Intuitive Headworn Device: Just Say What You See

It never ceases to amaze us.

We spend hours sharpening our skills to demonstrate the HMT-1 and what happens? Every time someone tries it, they’re following the on-screen prompts on their own within seconds.

From completing a Digital Workflow to streaming live video with an expert, we made HMT-1 intuitive because it has to be. We knew that if we wanted to create the best tool for industrial workers, we had to build a device that would act as an extension of their hands. With a few simple voice commands, now workers can improve their productivity while preserving their situational awareness.

Another feature of HMT-1 that always shocks anyone who tries it out: it responds to voice commands with up to 98% accuracy even when ambient noise reaches 95 dB. Because we know real work is noisy, it’s fast-paced, and you need to keep up no matter what. Even when it’s as noisy as a freeway, HMT-1 is ready.

2. HMT-1 Is The Most Rugged Industrial Wearable You’ll Find At Augmented World Expo

Want to know one of our favorite things to do at trade shows like Augmented World Expo? Drop HMT-1 on the floor during a demo. This surprises everyone who’s trying it for the first time. But it always draws a knowing smile from people who have experienced it before. And if you think about it, this is just a glimpse of HMT-1’s rugged nature. Whatever we put it through during a trade show, we know the conditions will always be far more brutal on a real jobsite.

HMT-1 earned an IP66 rating for being water-proof & dust-proof, and it’s drop-proof from up to 2 meters onto concrete. And no matter how hot or cold it gets, or how isolated & extreme your work conditions, HMT-1 is ready.

So go ahead. Do your worst. HMT-1 can take it.*

3. Finally, HMT-1 Is Trusted By The Best

We built HMT-1 to be the best, and we’re not the only ones who think so. Check out these quotes from across the industry and around the world:

“Wearable augmented reality solutions continue to make inroads with industrial customers, and RealWear’s HMT-1 offers an obviously compelling solution: a virtualized Android tablet hidden within a fully voice-controlled headset. After pilot tests across multiple locations, Colgate-Palmolive and RealWear just announced that they’re bringing HMT-1 wearables into 20 manufacturing facilities in 11 countries.”

Jeremy Horowitz, Venturebeat, “RealWear brings Android tablet-styled AR headset to Colgate-Palmolive

“Plants, factories, and utilities finally have that killer (in a good way) human-machine interface that meets their stringent safety standards, withstands their harsh environments, and survives the scrutiny of their no-nonsense users: the RealWear HMT-1— the first and only industrial-grade, 100% hands-free wearable computer.”

John Hitch, New Equipment Digest, “Crowning Achievement: This Industrial Wearable Reigns Supreme

“With wearables like the HMT-1 from RealWear, I expect to see no less than 50% of the industry adopt this technology.  Anyone who is in the field on a daily basis will be wearing this.”

Zachary Wassenberg, Burns & McDonnell

But what do our customers and partners say? Glad you asked.

“The HMT-1 was clearly built with purpose for our use, effectively giving workers an extra pair of eyes in highly constrained spaces where quality and safety are non-negotiable.” 

Bryan Shackleford, WWE&C Innovation Representative, Eastman Chemical

“Enterprises know where they want to be in 5-10 years but also understand that they need to start with proven solutions that drive increased uptime, faster issue resolution and accelerated training on the job. These teams see Onsight on the HMT-1 as a core part of the solution for hands-free collaboration.”

Jereme Pitts, COO, Librestream
