META 2 Development Kit
The Meta 2 Development Kit is the newest augmented reality (AR) head-mounted display on the market and with its 90° projection offers a significantly wider field of view as previous AR glasses, thereby providing immersive AR experiences. The virtual work spaces of the future are becoming a reality today!
The capabilities of the META 2
The high-resolution projections of Meta 2, in connection with the interfaces to Unity 3D and SOLIDWORKS, among others, enable the three-dimensional display of 3D and CAD models in the midst of the real world. Thanks to the intuitive hand-gesture control, designers and engineers are also able to interact with these holograms in real-time.
