Companies are always looking to optimize their internal processes, avoid production downtime as much as possible and reduce the distance to key specialists. The innovative technologies of virtual and augmented reality can make a valuable contribution to this. 

The RealWear HMT-1 including the Remote Support Software for RealWear provides impressive new possibilities in the daily business of companies. The following article explains in detail how companies can benefit from the use of this modern technology. 

RealWear HMT-1 ¬- What is it anyway?

The RealWear HMT-1 is a voice-controlled device that sits on the head of its wearer, giving them complete freedom of movement. For example, when working on scaffolding, important tools and equipment can still be operated. 

At the same time, the RealWear HMT-1 proves to be much more intelligent, safer and faster than conventional smart glasses or tablets. The device is ideally suited for use in various areas of industry, always guaranteeing maximum work safety.

For example, through the RealWear HMT-1, employees can download documents they need in their work, such as instructions or diagrams, by using voice commands. Switching between individual tasks and documents is extremely easy – without the use of hands. The technology is also ideally suited for introducing new team members to their tasks through experienced professionals as part of remote training.

Disturbing noise in the workplace is not a problem, as the response to voice commands is 98 percent accurate, even when there is 95 dB in the environment. The device’s high level of insensitivity ensures that the information employees need is available at all times, even under extreme conditions. Unusual machine sounds can also be recorded by the device and sent to a remote specialist in real time so they can identify the problem at hand. 

In summary, the RealWear HMT-1 impresses with the following features and performance: 


  • Recording and capturing sounds to complement visual inspection.
  • Sharing of documents, photos and videos
  • Direct communication with remote experts
  • Ten hours of operation on a single battery charge
  • Complete control through voice commands

These are the benefits the RealWear HMT-1 offers businesses 

With the help of the RealWear HMT-1, repairs can be carried out by technicians much faster. This, of course, increases customer satisfaction. Since more repairs are completed in less time, sales can also be massively increased. 

Since employees no longer have to manually search through paper documents or computers for specific information, a lot of valuable time can be saved. In addition, concentration can be completely directed to the task at hand, as the device is controlled by the convenient voice command. 

In addition, the RealWear HMT-1 ensures improved work safety. After all, it can be quite dangerous to use pen, paper or mobile devices with your hands. Regardless of the environment, the RealWear HMT-1 makes it possible to retrieve any information via voice commands. 

If internal repairs are needed, they can be performed in a timely manner thanks to the innovative device. Since the real-time connection to a remote expert enables very prompt identification and elimination of errors and malfunctions, production downtimes are significantly reduced.
