IRISH & SCOTTISH TEAMS AWARDED WINNERS OF THE FIRST DAQRI INTERNATIONAL SMART HELMET HACKATHON

At DAQRI, we believe that augmented reality is going to reach scale for the first time in history in the industrial market, and that the developer community is one of the most critical constituencies in how we get there. Augmented reality in the workplace, implemented correctly, should give both individual contributors and managers real-time information about tasks, priorities, and field-specific knowledge in an intuitive and interactive way. Pair that power with wearables and you have the logic that led DAQRI to create our ecosystem of augmented reality hardware and software.
