REVOLUTIONARY TECHNOLOGY SET TO SHAKEUP TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIES
IT’S reality as you’ve never seen it before.
Revolutionary augmented reality technology developed by Brisbane entrepreneurs for Google Glass is about to shake up the business sector providing a whole new layer to realworld experiences.
Unlike virtual reality which is manufactured, augmented reality adds another sense or dimension to experiences, displaying information, visuals or sensing situations and taking action.
Brisbane entrepreneur Jordan Duffy’s IT strategy, innovation and custom development firm Buckham & Duffy Consultants is only one of two Australian firms authorised to develop applications for the wearable tech.
Mr Duffy said the technology has the potential to drastically shake-up traditional industries, helping improve efficiency and solve problems.
“The opportunities are endless,” Mr Duffy said.
“It’s going to change the life of the deskless worker whether he or she is a farmer, teacher or a paramedic.”
For example if you were fixing a cable, you can lift your head while wearing Google Glass, connect to a control centre and use the device as a video conference where people can point and walk you through the repair process.
“Or say a paramedic in the field needs to get the okay to sedate a patient ... the aim is that Glass will detect stress levels, connect to the control centre and have a doctor guide them through the next step and react accordingly.”
Mr Duffy’s company is working with a number of industry leaders to build concepts to improve efficiency.
The company had partnered with the cattle judging competition at this year’s Ekka so that judges could wear the futuristic eyewear streaming an up-close encounter with regional farmers and remote communities.
