Lenovo has launched another ThinkReality gadget for CES 2021, and the organization says it’s “one of the most advanced and versatile” smart glasses for enterprise customers. The manufacturer is presenting the ThinkReality A3 as a pair of smart glasses that can be used for applications like 3D visualization and augmented reality guided workflows at a time when the world is “looking to adopt new technologies for smart collaboration.” Unlike the first ThinkReality model, the A6, which resembles your run of the mill mixed reality headset, this one fits more like a couple of (thick) sunglasses. Organizations can adjust it with Lenovo’s industrial frame options, however, to make it more strong or more secure.
The ThinkReality A3 is fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 SoC for virtual and mixed reality headsets. It can appear at five virtual 1080p displays and has a 8-megapixel camera that can give 1080p video, as well as double fish-eye cameras for room-scale tracking. The headset actually should be associated with either a PC or a Motorola cell phone controlled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor or better by means of USB-C to work, however.
As you’d expect, the PC edition utilizes Windows software tools and applications. In the interim, the A3 Industrial Edition depends on Motorola’s ThinkReality software platform for hands-free AR tasks. Lenovo imagines different applications for the headset across businesses and trusts it very well may be utilized any place space and security are restricted. It very well may be utilized in factories, labs, retail stores and hospitality spaces, for example. Since it’s intended for big business use, Lenovo didn’t deliver a shopper value point, yet it declared that the A3 will be accessible in select business sectors overall beginning mid-2021.
