Bremen, May 17th, 2016: Ubimax today announced its cooperation with Telepathy Japan Inc., a Japan-based leading developer of smart eyewear technologies. From now on Ubimax will be a Value Added Reseller (VAR) of Telepathy’s products for the European Market. Within the main focus of the new strategic cooperation is the innovative smart eyewear device “Telepathy Walker”.
The “Telepathy Walker” is a ruggedized wearable device that allows users to enjoy Augmented Reality applications both inside and outside. The “Telepathy Walker” has distinct technological advantages together with an original cutting-edge optical design. Normally the new eyewear type of wearable device hung around the neck and when necessary the device can be worn in front of the eye, for continued use an attachment could be used to secure it on eyeglasses or the head. Because of the advanced design concept, the “Telepathy Jumper” fits variety of industrial use cases and field needs.
AR apps can be used on variety of devices, such as tablets, smart phones, but the interesting scenarios involve users who need both of their hands to perform their workflows. This is where AR-capable Smart Glasses make the most sense. They enable users to communicate in real-time, provide immediate information at eye level, freeing up the hands of the user. Such solutions are finding acceptance in several market segments and many successful pilots have already turned into live deployments. Among others, Daimler, DHL, Samsung, Schnellecke Logistics and Volkswagen belong to the success stories of Ubimax Smart Glasses projects within this context.
Ken Suzuki, CEO of Telepathy Japan Inc. commented, ”Telepathy has been working very close to the Japanese industrial end-user demands and has already implemented our products successfully for various customers in Japan. In order to provide our cutting edge solution to European market, we are pleased to work with Ubimax, an experienced and ideal partner to develop their specific Wearable Computing applications to corporate users.” Also Jan Junker, CCO of Ubimax, is enthusiastic about the new alliance: “I am happy to have Telepathy as a strategic partner with us on board.
