At CES 2017, Lenovo is showcasing Lenovo New Glass C200 (along with compatible AR software), a smart glass product that leverages two of the hottest technologies in the industry today: augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI). This smart glass solution has the capability to provide commercial customers the ability to better perform their jobs, access information faster, connect with remote co-workers easily and so much more.
Lenovo New Glass C200 is a monocular smart glass system that recognizes and identifies real-life objects using AI technologies. The product comes with two main parts, a Glass Unit and Pocket Unit, making for a user-friendly wearable experience. The Glass Unit is super lightweight, under 60 grams, and runs on Linux operating system. It only uses one eye, enhancing a user’s perception of “mixed reality” while viewing the AR world simultaneous to the real world. After downloading the New Glass app to your smartphone and simply plugging the Pocket Unit into the phone, the Lenovo New Glass C200 system runs with more processing power, and offers enhanced CPU performance and an LTE connection to the smart glass. There are accessories in the box available for you to place the Pocket Unit on your belt or in your pocket. The New Glass C200 allows you to gather information in your field of view, provide step-by-step directions and instructions for repair, identify disabled equipment and trouble shoot issues with a remote colleague all while your hands are free.
Lenovo New Glass C200 recognizes about 20 kinds of objects, such as building schematics within a real-life image and uses AI recognition software, named Lenovo NBD Martin, to identify the image it is viewing and label it using bounding boxes and annotations. Lenovo has created Lenovo NBD Martin to perceive a scene or object through “computer vision,” then act as an AI assistant to help identify what the image actually is in real-time. It analyzes data coming from the smart glass camera, sensors and user habit history and combines that insight with user interaction such as voice commands, gestures and pressed buttons to act as an AI assistant, providing commercial users with access to information and tools needed to complete their job.
As part of the comprehensive smart solution, we are also unveiling a software platform Lenovo NBD Titan, which lets users at all level of developer skills create and edit AR content quickly. This solution brings AR to every user with visual editing software that can operate on a multitude of devices and platforms. Users can immerse themselves in an AR world with AR Content Builder and Space Visitor, which allows users to manipulate and edit items in an AR scene seamlessly. For example, this will make home improvement and interior design easier, offering an AR space to experiment with interesting architectures and designs—all without requiring coding or developer skills.
As innovation is a key part of Lenovo’s DNA, and we are always seeking different ways to bring better solutions to our business customers, Lenovo New Glass C200 is ideal for commercial and business users, and customized versions are now available through www.newbd.com or www.lenovo-ar.com. Mass production of Lenovo New Glass C200 is expected to start in June 2017.
