No. 733: New glasses for Canon’s Mixed Reality (MREAL) system (June 13, 2013)

Canon developed the special glasses for its Mixed Reality (MREAL) system that displays the image of a product under development. It looks like a binoculars, the user can see the product image in the real space. Unlike the existing model, it is smaller and easier to handle in an exhibition hall and a meeting room.

The MREAL was launched in July 2012. It synthesizes a camera image in the same level with the eye line and 3-D CAD data on the display inside the glasses. The frequency of examining a trial product decreases because the image of a real product is displayed as if it is a real product. The company shipped more than 20 systems to automakers and construction companies.
