DAQRI Smart Industrial Helmet: Augmented Worker

The last time we featured augmented reality company DAQRI, it had borderline gimmicky applications for its specialty. But DAQRI is dreaming big with its smart helmet. Meant for field workers, the helmet leverages augmented reality to help professionals get around, learn, document and overall perform their job better.

The smart helmet has two retractable HD displays that DAQRI says is highly visible even in broad daylight. The helmet also has four cameras to maintain 360º tracking, a depth camera and an inertial measurement unit.

With the right software, the helmet can give you at-a-glance information about an object, facility or even an entire area. It could also let you see virtual readings from a far away instrument or device, give you detailed step-by-step instructions or navigation or point out where or what you’re supposed to work on. Since it’s packed with cameras, you can also use the helmet to shoot photos, take videos and even make 3D maps.

It might not be the most fashionable of helmets, but I bet the people wearing it will quickly forget that when the augmented reality interface pops before their eyes. Check out DAQRI’s website for more on the helmet.

Thanks Regan!
