Lenovo today introduced ThinkReality, its new platform for business augmented reality. Since it is independent of the device, hardware and platform in the cloud, it can be used by other brands and various software.
The company has also introduced the first device for this platform: ThinkReality A6. Among its functions include the cooperation of workers in projects, the visualization of 3D models, or the training of employees remotely.
This autonomous augmented reality viewer features FullHD screens (1080p per eye), 16: 9 aspect ratio, 40 degrees of field of view and a 13 MP camera. It includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, Intel Movidius VPU (Vision Processing Unit), depth sensor, inertial measurement unit (IMU), and two integrated fisheye lenses.
In addition, it has up to four hours of battery life (removable 6800mAh battery) and weighs about 380 grams. This device can be used with voice commands, gestures and gaze tracking, or through a 3DoF hand controller.
The device connects to a mini PC with Android operating system that is responsible for the processing of information. As for connectivity, you will have both WiFi and Bluetooth.
If we compare with Microsoft’s Hololens viewers, it has more resolution than the first generation Hololens (maximum resolution per eye of 1,268 x 720), but less than Hololens 2 (1,440p per eye). It is also placed between both versions of Hololens if you look at the field of vision.
This viewer will be available as of the third quarter of this year 2019. It is currently necessary to contact the Lenovo commercials for more information.
The company has also presented, as we can see on its website, another series of devices such as laptops and IoT.
