A new Chinese startup, Rokid, is offering a product in the fight against Covid-19 that appears to have come out of a science fiction film. These are wearable AR glasses that measure the temperature of everything around you.
Bringing AR technology to the street
Rokid develops augmented reality products for games, but has now brought its technology to the street to help fight the global pandemic. The company based in Hangzhou he told Reuters that I developed the glasses in just two weeks.
The vice president of Rokid Xiang Wenjie he says that 1000 T1 models (this is the name of the device) have already been sold to government agencies, companies and schools.
T1 glasses are capable of providing portable, remote and timely temperature control, which can be of great help.
T1 augmented reality glasses can record people's temperatures up to three meters away. In addition to detecting temperatures, they can also implement augmented reality functionality to record hands-free photos and videos.
How do AR thermometer glasses work?
T1 uses an infrared sensor that measures nearby temperatures with the help of a camera, and then transfers the acquired information directly to the display.
A solution that directly projects the augmented reality (already present in other sectors of the healthcare sector) also in safety and prevention scenarios.
The next version of the device already under consideration will allow these AR glasses to detect multiple temperatures together. This will make them ideal for use in busy spaces such as shopping malls and airports, allowing you to speed up the identification of any virus positives.
Rokid announced on its website that it has completed a series of "billionaire" loans led by investors including Swiss bank Credit Suisse, Singaporean holding Temasek and others.
