Augmented reality software developer Maxst has made the move into hardware with the announcement of Revelio, Maxst’s new untethered AR smartglasses.
These stereoscopic glasses feature an Octa-core processor, 2 GB of memory, a 40-degree field of view, and a 720p display, and they do not require being connected to a phone or computer. Maxst currently has their new hardware along with a large selection of software on display at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
In a recent press release, CEO Jaewan Park said, “We decided to exhibit our new products at CES 2017 in order to show the world the superior AR technology of Maxst while seeking for a chance to find a new business partner. Even after attending CES, we will keep developing AR products that will make our life more convenient.”
Any developers interested in getting into Maxst’s system can begin quickly with the Maxst AR 3D SDK. This development environment does offer Unity support and will work on iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS.
No release date or pricing information for Revelio has been released yet.
Another product that Maxst is demonstrating at CES 2017 is VIVAR, an AR-based video calling system that allows the users to share virtual objects overlaid onto the real world. This system appears to be very similar to what the Microsoft HoloLens has available with its Skype application.
