ThirdEye Gen is a company that we’ve been following for some time with their variety of immersive augmented and mixed reality smart glasses, including their latest X2 glasses that were introduced at CES 2019 earlier this year. ThirdEye was even at our own CE Week show last June where they announced their launch in b8ta stores.
ThirdEye will be back in New York for CE Week 2019, June 12-13, where they’ll participate in a keynote panel on 5G technology alongside representatives from Verizon Wireless and a couple of other brands. The timing for the panel couldn’t be better as Verizon announced this week that ThirdEye Gen will be the company’s first official 5G smart glasses partner.
Through the partnership, ThirdEye will be able to develop their X2 MR glasses on Verizon’s 5G network, which will give the glasses much larger bandwidth and lower latency, allowing for more data to be transferred to and from the glasses at a much faster speed. The realization of 5G on the ThirdEye platform has very obvious positive implications for the enterprise space where hands-free interaction and communications for remote workers—no matter the industry—is critical to a successful job.
