Big Brain OS1

Is brand new kind of operating system just for augmeneted reality devices. It allows users to select which AR apps they want to use in a true augmented reality work  environment. There are a lot of great software companies out there working on augmented reality application. We're trying to weave their amazing applications together into an integrated system. This way new consumer have all of the software needed to enjoy augmented reality without needing to know much.

 

 

WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY?

You’re probably thinking, I guess I’ve used AR, but can we do a deeper dive? Augmented Reality is an enhanced or altered form of reality where superimposed content gets added to users' real-world views.

Those Snapchat filters? Yeah, that's augmented reality. Pokemon Go? Totally augmented reality. Oculus Rift? Well, no. That's actually virtual reality.  Augmented reality (AR) assists fighter pilots flying at nearly twice the speed of sound and helps surgeons to perform complicated procedures, but it wasn’t always this advanced or accessible. 

AR technology was born at Harvard University in 1968. Ivan Sutherland, an electrical engineering professor, created a head-mounted display system, nicknamed “The Sword of Damocles." Sounds intimidating, right? It was. The massive headset weighed so much that it was anchored to the ceiling to operate. Users also had to be strapped into the system for it to work, making the experience pretty uncomfortable.

Over the next several decades, advancements in AR led to helpful aviation, military, and industrial simulation tools, but the technology didn’t gain a national audience until the late 1990s. One of the first widely visible uses of augmented reality came from an unexpected source: the NFL. The yellow line signifying a first-down, the one we have all grown to depend on over the past 20 years, is probably one of the most visible and helpful uses of AR.

Since then, AR has evolved at a rapid pace and is being used for both commercial and individual purposes. Between 2011 and 2013, AR was embraced by companies like Disney, Coca-Cola, and National Geographic to execute campaigns at large events and in public spaces like shopping malls and Times Square. In 2014, Google released Google Glass — the first mass-produced, wearable AR device — making it easy to get digital information simply by nodding your head. Snapchat added the geofilter feature a few months later, allowing users to add graphics showcasing geographic locations to their photos. They then introduced Lenses, a feature that maps users’ faces to add motion graphics to photos and videos. As of the end of 2017, 187 million people used Snapchat daily. And that's just Snapchat. AR is now so popular that multiple social networks, businesses, and retailers use the technology. That's a lot of augmented reality.

WHAT CAN OS1 DO?

 

OS1 integrates the best of class software developed by many independent software developers into one unifed operaitng system for augmented reality glasses. We help developers sell their software and put it in a sensible package. Right now the market for augmented reality, at least the general consumer segement, isn't that big. Some of the applications that are almost ready for consumers includes:

 

Travel

Interesting buildings and historical sites come to life with facts and rich audio video content. It's like having a 24/7 tour guide.
