AR Helmet, new gadget !
The First AR Helmet that Makes You A Real Iron Man – SEER
Yes, we met Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus Rift, at CES. He tried SEER and he liked it.)
All contents are filmed using a real SEER prototype. Please note that it is difficult to take good videos when we could only film with our mobile phone and handcrafted lens (the seeing experience would have been even better if the lens is made out of an optic mold).
These videos are meant to demo some general ideas of SEER’s incredible FOV and its immersive AR experience. However, THEY DO NOT reflect the actual resolution you will see with a real SEER. In fact, the resolution is extraordinary and it will certainly surprise you. Support us now so that you can try it for yourself!
Apps by Caputer Labs
We have been working to create some exciting Apps for you to try for our unique experience.
Currently, We are developing several apps and they are:
-a cool IronMan double-layer demo app (as you see in the second video above, just a demo)
-a ghost hunting game app,
-a “fruit ninja” game app,
-a dancing 3D model(as you can see in the video above).
-a video players app that has the mirror invert function and allows you to watch movies with SEER.
-a desktop sharing app that has the mirror invert function and allows you to sync your PC to smartphones.
Development of these Apps will continue throughout and after Kickstarter and we will also come up with some more exciting Apps by the time we ship SEER. Below the video are some demos of our existing games and they all function well.
Augmented Reality Starmap:
In addition to our self developed Apps, there are many AR apps that can run well on Seer. The StarMap, which you could find in Google Play, works well. SEER brings an unexpected experience to you which will totally blow your mind. Try to explore the galaxy with SEER and get ready to be immersed into the mysterious universe.
Augmented Reality Navigation:
Don’t just use Google map in the old fashion. Try to navigate your car with SEER. SEER takes your navigation experience into a new level and you will be surprised that you can enjoy so much driving. Any navigation App with HUD settings will work well with SEER.
Other possibilities of AR:
In addition to Starmap & Navigation, there are some AR software that were originally created for iOS and Android smartphones and you may tinker with SEER. SEER’s great FOV will elevate your feelings and make the software even more fun and exciting. NOTE: Some UI modifications will be required to work with SEER and we will try to talk to these software developers.
Coding for SEER:
Apart from these apps, you may code for yourself too! There are already many open source AR apk available on the internet and you can develop your own AR Apps in different areas such as in Games, Medical, Aviation, Engineer, Education, Logistics, Architecture, Sports, Entertainment and anything you want!
Coding for SEER is exactly the same as coding for your smartphone but with a slightly different UI design.
If you have come up with some awesome Apps that work with SEER, let us know so we can feature you on our website, as well as in our App display. Your App will become
ADD-ON: Connect SEER to Your GAME CONSOLES + PC
We made a display set and it is an add-on to our current SEER package. Instead of putting a smartphone, you may insert the display set into SEER and connect it to your XBOX, PlayStation or PC using wire or wireless methods. The display set consists of a FHD screen (IPS,1920*1080) and a HDMI to MIPI module and it is modified to adapt to SEER. Therefore, the image shown in SEER will be normal and NOT mirrored. Once the display set is connected to game consoles using a wire cord or wifi, you will be able to use SEER to play games directly from your game console and enjoy this very unique experience SEER brings. Just imagine there being a huge personal screen and you play games with it. How incredible it is for a gamer like you. Plus, it is also great to watch movies too.
+++VALUE ADDED+++ Movies
Apart from augmented reality, SEER can also become a VR-like helmet when you want it to be (with a light-shield cover). Imagine watching your favorite videos in a 200+” screen setting. SEER turns your home into a big movie theater and gives you an incredible private IMAX experience.
And you don’t need to worry about being blindsighted and not knowing what happens around you. Unlike VR devices, SEER’s design enables you to sense and interact with the real world.
You can download any existing content and play with your smartphones, using vid player app developed by Caputer Labs.
+++VALUE ADDED+++ Games:
Similar to movies, SEER’s wide angle and big screen features can provide you with a very special gaming experience, which was not possible with phones alone (FPS games will be awesome and we would highly recommend it).
You can use some external input devices such as leapmotion, game controller or joystick to play big games that were not cool enough to play on smartphones,.
Accompanied with SEER’s big FOV and immersive feeling, your smartphone is no longer limited to its screen size and you will be able to play big games in your smartphone and enjoy the special fun of it. Some images may need to be inverted but it won’t affect your playing experience much as a whole. And you can still try and tinker.
+++VALUE ADDED+++ Developer Kit for other glasses:
SEER helps developers in AR App development for various glasses and improves development efficiency by reducing process.
UI design is extremely crucial in AR Apps development, as most AR Apps would require very specific and well designed UI to support its AR feeling. And from our own experience, UI design changes and it may very often vary from different FOV. So the UI design in Google Glass won’t be as good as it would be to Vuzix or Meta. Therefore, UI design for each glass needs to be designed individually. This will not only cost a lot of money for AR developers (as you will have to purchase various glasses at a significant cost) but also take a lot of time and process.
SEER can help lower the cost, improve the efficiency and make it better. Since SEER has the greatest FOV, other glass UI design development can be made possible using SEER. Developers can change many UI designs for a preview in SEER, as the smartphone can be synced to the computers to see a simultaneous preview for a new UI design. Furthermore, developers can use SEER to simulate UI designs for various glasses with different FOV too. This will not only lower the cost but also increase efficiency for many early AR developers.
SEER Hardware Compatibility:
We have carefully designed our product so that it can fit all types of smartphones. Apple, Samsung, Lenovo, Motorola, LG, Huawei, HTC, Sony, OnePlus and Xiaomi all work with SEER. However, please keep in mind that Seer is only compatible with phones up to 6”.
SEER Self-developed Hands-free Software Compatibility:
SEER’s self developed software, which would allow a hands-free experience, is currently based on Android OS and it is compatible with Android devices running OS 2.3 and up. Works great with Android 4.0 but it may need to root your Android phone. We are under development of our iOS based SEER App at this time.
The team is founded on a simple belief that augmented reality technology will become one of the most powerful and life changing technologies and it will eventually make human life much more fun and efficient in many ways. We all love augmented reality and we want to be part of it.
