Assessing a few helmet mounted systems today for augmented reality in-field use.
Some of them totally cool…
…some of them not so much.
Information overload continues to be a problem for any user including the ongoing data deluge to our military fixed and rotor wing pilots who regularly use these variants of these systems.
And simplicity just isn’t going to cut it.
Additionally, hardware barriers are easy to overcome but the software still lags due to lack of high speed connection. Cellular speeds are lackluster, but the apps required to do overlay of information hogs data up real quick. Additionally, the power required to run these complex apps on hardware is huge.
Maybe I’ll just go retro.
It’s Monday so keep your head down!
