What’s the best way to open developers’ eyes to the enormous potential of hands-free assisted reality applications for frontline workers?
For AREA member RealWear, the answer is to invite developers to a two-day event at their Vancouver headquarters, give them their own RealWear Navigator™ 500 device, and have RealWear’s CTO and VP of Software show them how to create a hands-free, voice-driven application.
It’s the first-ever onsite RealWear Developer Academy and it all happens November 16 and 17.
“It’s an opportunity for developers with mobile or desktop app development experience to create hands-free, voice driven solutions,” said RealWear Senior Director of Training and Implementation Kristen Naeini.
RealWear is “the world’s leading provider of assisted reality wearable solutions that engage, empower, and elevate the modern frontline industrial worker to perform work tasks more safely, and with increased efficiency and precision.” Because RealWear gives these workers real-time access to information and expertise, while keeping their hands and field of view free for work, it has attracted a growing number of world-class customers, including Shell, Goodyear, Mars, Colgate-Palmolive, and BMW.
In addition to getting hands-on experience with RealWear technologies, participants will have opportunities to network and share ideas with RealWear team members. The cost for the two-day event, including the Navigator 500 device, the training sessions, and RealWear-hosted lunches, is $2500 per person ($1000 for those who bring their own devices).
Attendees will leave the event with the apps they’ve developed, the skills to develop and optimize more solutions, and a deeper understanding of the benefits that RealWear can deliver today to frontline workers.
“We’re at a golden time to enter the market while still being considered an emerging technology,” said Naeini. “Because our solutions offer a non-immersive, mixed reality experience, it allows us to provide situational awareness, health and safety compliance, and actually start delivering on Industry 4.0 aspirations today – without delay.”
