XOEye Technologies developed eyewear that includes a camera and sensors that are designed for blue-collar occupations, not consumers.
XOEye's eyewear has numerous functions, including barcode scanning and sensors that can track, for instance, how many times an employee has to bend down to pick something up, or how far someone must walk to perform certain tasks.
But the big use for these glasses is for job training, especially today as many baby boomers in the skilled trades retire. With the glasses' video link, someone can see exactly what a person is doing. This means that a person with expertise can observe, guide and instruct someone on a particular job, no matter where they are located.
XOEye has been performing pilot tests on the eyewear, but was launching it at the show.
