5 Most Innovative Augmented Reality Companies Which Can be Immediately Seen as One of The Top Player in The Golden Era of Technology Revolution: Augrealitypedia
As a regular visitor of my blog, you must be well aware with the term “Augmented Reality”. For a newcomer, Augmented Reality (AR) infuse virtual contents into your physical world and that too in the real-time. Due to the recent advancement in hardware and smart phone technologies, AR is slowly gaining momentum. And, many companies are using Augmented Reality in their products and solve various practical problems. While many Augmented Reality Companies were predicted their bright future a long time ago, others have started very recently to make their hands dirty with AR. These companies play a major role to spread the usefulness of this awesome technology to masses. I have shortlisted 5 out of the top Augmented reality companies for you.
5 Most Innovative Augmented Reality Companies
Below is the list of some of the top Augmented Reality Companies.#AugmentedRealityCompanies are Milking Each Opportunity to use AR in Their Products Click To Tweet
#1. Gravity Jack
Gravity Jack is one of the top Augmented reality companies. it’s a Washington-based software company. It was founded in 2009. The company has the specialization in using Augmented reality Technology.
What Gravity Jack does in Augmented Reality?
Since beginning, the company provides unique AR experience to its customer. It’s worth to mention here that for developing applications using Augmented Reality, the company has its own patented software development kit.
One of the major achievement of this Augmented reality company is BrowsAR app, available for Android as well as iOS. Apart from working as a regular QR code scanner, this app also recognizes one special type of Augment marker, named QAR codes. Never heard QAR code before? Well, you must have seen QR code printed on many products. But, going one step ahead, Gravity Jack has added one border to QR code in such a way that it acts as an Augmented Reality marker (AR Marker). In fact, this Augmented Reality company holds a patent in these Quick Augmented Reality (QAR) codes. Thus, when you point your smartphone (BrowsAR App opened on it) towards any thing with QAR code embed, virtual contents pop up on the screen in the real-time.
Another patent-pending technology from the Gravity Jack is PoindextAR. Unlike BrowsAR, this works without the need of any type of marker. I recommend you to check below YouTube video and see its usefulness in the industries.
The company claim that their technology can precisely detect and track any object regardless of their physical appearance without the need of any marker or sticker. And, this unique characteristics can really make Gravity Jack as a ground-breaking leader among all top Augmented Reality companies.
Wikipedia describes Baidu Inc as one of the largest internet companies in the world. This Chinese-American company has incorporated in 2000. And, it has developed the most widely used search engine in china.
What Baidu does in the field of Augmented Reality?
Major contribution of the company, I can list out as below:-
- In August 2016, Baidu has introduced DuSee, an Augmented Reality platform for their millions of mobile users. Additionally, the company has planned to integrate AR in its pre-existing mobile apps like Baidu search App. Also, the company has revealed that to provide an amazing Augmented reality experience, DuSee utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI). While other major Augmented Reality companies require an upgraded version of hardware, Baidu focus on utilizing the smart phone technologies that already exists.
- In January 2017, Baidu has launched Augmented Reality Lab and again proved its active involvement in the AR field. The purpose of this AR lab is to extend the company wings into the field of AR marketing, education, healthcare, etc.
Thus, the approach of introducing Augmented Reality into various practical applications and still focusing on existing mobile technology will definitely help Baidu to grasp a position of leader among all Augmented Reality companies.
Lumus is one of the most innovative Augmented Reality company. This Israel-based company was founded in 2000.
What Lumus does in the field of Augmented reality?
Lumus is the key maker of transparent glasses. But, don’t make mistake to compare them with your ordinary glasses. These are specially manufactured for Augmented reality and Mixed reality wearable devices. Thus, by using these transparent glasses, various MR and AR headsets can blend and project virtual information in your real view. While other similar glasses provide maximum 30 degree view angle, Lumus claims a wide view angle up to 55 degree in its prototype build. In fact, Lumus is having a patent in their technology, named “Light-guide Optical Element (LOE)“. Moreover, this Augmented reality company offers a series of transparent glasses to their enterprise customers. Do check below YouTube video from Lumus to understand the depth of involvement of the company in various uses of Augmented Reality.
Thus, with its patented technology and effort to achieve AR capabilities in the size of normal goggles, Lumus has proved itself as a tough competitor for the other MR devices like Microsoft HoloLens.
Daqri is a California-based Augmented reality company. It was founded in 2010.
What Daqri does in the field of Augmented Reality?
Daqri provide some very innovative solutions by utilizing AR in their products. Anatomy 4D and Elements 4D are the best examples to mention here. These AR apps help students to learn science subjects in a very interactive manner. Moreover, products from this top Augmented reality company are not limited to software only rather extend to wearable devices like Daqri Smart helmet also. This Augmented Reality helmet is developed for industrial customers. And, it is used by various industries to enhance the skills of the operators by adding detailed visual guidance directly to their real view of sight. Do check below YouTube video to see this Smart-Helmet in action.
Thus, by injecting Augmented Reality in various fields like education (AR Apps) and heavy industries (Smart Helmet) Daqri has a great potential to become one of the best Augmented Reality Companies.
#5. EON Reality
EON Reality is one of the well-known Virtual reality and Augmented reality company. This California-based company was founded in 1999.
What EON Reality does in the field of Augmented Reality?
This Augmented reality development company provides various interactive AR tools to make knowledge easily accessible and affordable to masses. Major contribution from EON Reality, I can list out as below:-
- In Feb 2016, EON Reality has launched EON Creator AVR. Using this patent-pending application, you can easily create and share your own tutorial and other resources enriched with virtual and Augmented reality.
- In Oct 2016, the company has introduced EON Geo to its EON AVR Platform. This enables you to add Tag to Augmented Reality contents based on the GPS location. In fact, introducing GPS and eliminating the need of AR marker is a breakthrough entry of the company in the Location based Augmented Reality.
- In Nov 2016, Indian Government has done a partnership with EON Reality to establish first Augmented Reality Institute in India. According to news, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-BHU) will also participate in this project.
In summary, I can say that many innovative Augmented Reality Companies are keen interested in AR. And, they are literally milking each and every opportunity to use this growing technology in their products. Nevertheless to mention it here that due to its capability of solving many practical and complex problems in a very interactive manner, it proves beneficial for us as well. Gravity Jack, Baidu, Lumus, Daqri and EON Reality are the few Augmented Reality development companies worth to be mentioned as a Top Player in this technological race.
