The Company, a world leader in rugged, high-resolution head mounted
display (HMD) and OEM optoelectronic module manufacturing, was acquired
from Vuzix Corporation (News - Alert) (TSX-V: VZX, OTC BB: VUZI) on June 15, 2012.
The Tac-Eye AR displays are see-through AR-enabled binocular or
monocular systems that offer a 40 degree field of view for use in a wide
variety of industrial, medical, commercial, and defense applications.
Six15's patented optical see-through system allows users to view the
real world while simultaneously viewing relevant computer generated
information, graphics and alerts. The Tac-Eye AR specifications deliver
a solution far superior to any product available on the market today.
As part f this new offering, Six15 Technologies has partnered with APX
Labs to provide the core software solutions that drive the augmented
reality environment. APX Labs' truAR software manages the user
experience and interaction with the Tac-Eye, connects the device in
real-time to other users and systems, and manages how custom
applications run on the Tac-Eye AR. Upcoming software developer kits
will allow rapid adoption of the technology by developers everywhere.
"Smart Glasses enable people to get work done better, faster, cheaper
and safer. These hands-free real-time mobile applications are incredibly
powerful and applicable to almost every enterprise. Just a year ago,
none of this was possible, but breakthroughs in the hardware that Six15
is building combined with our software make it real today," said Brian
Ballard, CEO of APX Labs. "We are incredibly excited about the road
ahead and working with Six15 to bring Smart Glasses to market."
"As Six15 Technologies continues to expand into commercial and medical
markets, we are focused on delivering solutions immediately. Our new
see-through HMD solution leverages technology that is already developed,
tested, and proven in the field with our defense customers", said CEO
"To increase our speed to market, we look to those companies who we feel
are at the leading edge in their field and seek to partner with them.
APX Labs is clearly one such company. This partnership enables us to
integrate a superior software solution with our proven display
technology in a manner that will deliver immediate solutions to
customers in the commercial, medical, and defense sectors," added Ryan.
