CEO Nick Cherukuri Selected as Panelist and Speaker for Premiere Industry Event


Princeton, New Jersey – September 18, 2018 – ThirdEye Gen, Inc. today announced that they will showcase their X1 Smart Glasses, a powerful workplace augmented reality (AR) mobile computing device, at the VR/AR Global Summit in Vancouver, September 21 and 22. The VR/AR Global Summit is the premier marketplace and conference for industry leaders in immersive technology content, knowledge, and creation.

With more than 20 years of AR development expertise for the U.S. DoD, ThirdEye’s products are transforming the industrial, education and consumer spaces. ThirdEye will exhibit its “See-What-I-See” enterprise software, which enables users to experience the point-of-view of another person through live audio and video communication. Leveraged by over 20 industries, the paired X1 Smart Glasses and software platform offers a hands-free application that places information directly on the screen to assist with complex tasks. Current customers have measured a 30 percent reduction in employee training time specific to this feature.

“We’ve identified a significant opportunity for augmented reality technology in the healthcare and field service industries to simplify everyday tasks and drive innovate on big ideas and goals,” said Nick Cherukuri, President at ThirdEye Gen. “Our straight-out-of-the-box hardware solution pairs with customizable software that meets our customers’ specific needs and delivers on the promise of next-generation visualization.”

The company will showcase the X1 Smart Glasses at the VR/AR Global Summit from Booth #301 at the Parq Vancouver. Cherukuri has also been selected as a panelist for Enterprise Use Cases in VR/AR/MR, moderated by Alan Smithson, at 1:20 p.m. on Sept. 22 (Kitsilano 2 Stage). He will discuss AR and Wearables in a separate talk at 3:40 p.m. (Kitsilano 1 Stage).

ThirdEye’s integrated hardware/software platform gives users a hands-free UI and the equivalent of a 90” HD Screen at 10 feet, along with a 13-megapixel camera, and replaceable batteries for a full work-day of use. The X1 Smart Glasses feature a wide array of applications that make routine and complex tasks far more intuitive for every enterprise, from industrial centers and healthcare to law enforcement.  

Introduced CES 2018 in Las Vegas, the X1 Smart Glasses are available to enterprises and consumers for $999, and are featured in b8ta retail stores in Austin, New York City and San Francisco. For additional information, please visit or contact

Launching at the VR/AR Global Summit: Shape Immersive + Occipital + Axiom Zen to bring Blockchain into the World of Mixed Reality

Screen Shot 2018-09-06 at 2.33.50 PM.png

At this year’s VR/AR Global Summit in Vancouver (Sept 21–22), Shape Immersive is partnering up with Occipital, a leader in spatial computing, and Axiom Zen, the makers of the most successful blockchain game, to bring CryptoKitties into the mixed reality world. Players will be able to rescue these adorable digital cats from the notorious Kitty Kong.

“Working with a familiar IP like CryptoKitties adds a new layer of immersion to our mixed reality experience,” said Alex Chuang, Co-founder and CEO of Shape Immersive. “By digitizing the physical world, virtual characters can understand our physical environment and interact with it, which creates a sense of wonder and magic for the end users.”

“The line between the physical world and the digital world is increasingly blurred,” says Bryce Bladon, one of the founding team members of CryptoKitties. “With blockchain technology, digital assets like CryptoKitties are given life — but with augmented and virtual reality, they can come alive.”

This new multiplayer mixed reality experience is powered by Occipital’s depth sensor and its mixed reality framework, Bridge Engine. The depth sensor is used to scan the physical space, generating an accurate 3D model of the world that the AR devices can track on. This makes occlusion (hiding virtual objects behind physical objects), collision (colliding virtual objects with physical objects) and casting of virtual shadows on real-world objects possible.

“Understanding the environment is a foundational component of convincing mixed reality,” says Jeff Powers, Co-founder and CEO of Occipital “Having this knowledge equips storytellers and game-makers with a powerful tool for increasing believability and immersion.”

As the race for augmented reality technology heats up, VCs and tech giants are pouring billions of dollars into building the next computing platform. When AR devices become more ubiquitous, the demand for geospatial data will increase exponentially. Shape Immersive believes that blockchain technology can help make geospatial data universally accessible so that anyone can create scalable and persistent AR experiences.

About Shape Immersive

Shape Immersive is building a decentralized marketplace that will make geospatial data universally accessible so that anyone can create scalable and persistent Augmented Reality experiences. By using blockchain technology, Shape Immersive can create a trustless and open network that allows a distributed workforce to provide, validate and authenticate geospatial data.

About CryptoKitties

CryptoKitties is the world’s most successful blockchain game; since launching, tens of millions of US dollars in transactions have been conducted on the platform, with some of the game’s most popular cats selling for the equivalent of over US$100,000. Unlike cryptocurrencies, CryptoKitties are individually unique digital assets akin to digital art. CryptoKitties was created by Axiom Zen and spun out into a new company called Dapper Labs in February 2018, raising $12.85M from leading investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.

Toshiba’s future IT landscape survey:

"One notable area of enterprise innovation is that of wearables which, while long-mooted, have yet to impact the professional world in earnest to date. A ripening of market conditions make this set to change in the coming months and years.

According to ABI Research, global wearable device shipments to the enterprise will reach 154 million by 2021 – a significant jump from approximately 34 million in 2016. Verticals leading the way in this area include healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing, according to the research company, and Industry 4.0 is certainly a major influence in this sphere as such companies seek to derive greater intelligence from the Internet of Things (IoT) and related data revolution.

This trend is notable in the anticipated adoption of smart glasses into the enterprise. 80 per cent of organisations are aware of such solutions, but only two per cent have already deployed one. This is set to accelerate rapidly over the next few years, with 89 per cent of engineering, 83 per cent of logistics, and 77 per cent of manufacturing businesses set to implement smart glasses within the next three years."

BGC Engineering to exhibit at the VR/AR Global Summit (Applied Earth Sciences)

BGC Engineering Inc. (BGC) is an international consulting firm that provides professional services in applied earth sciences.

Clarity through holographic visualization

BGC Ada Platform

Applied earth scientists study and solve issues in a 3D world. Yet our industry has been constrained to communicate concepts using 2D images and drawings. This makes it difficult to communicate the scale and scope of challenging projects, as well as the complex geological conditions that must be addressed to achieve project success.

As a solution, BGC has developed the Ada Platform™ (Ada): a functional software platform that enables everyone to understand applied earth science as 3D holographic models.

Through realistic 3D interactive and immersive experiences Ada removes barriers to understanding multidimensional datasets and opens a portal to visualizing and investigating data and information in unprecedented ways.

Ada combines terrain and survey data, engineering designs, and real-time computer graphics to visualize applied earth science data in 3D. With this solution, experts and non-technical stakeholders can visit a digital version of their project site at any time – past, present or future. For example, an engineered mining landscape can be visualized through to closure, allowing various groups to collaborate through a shared 3D perspective.

BGC has assembled a unique team to develop Ada, with combined expertise in both earth sciences and augmented-reality holographic visualization. We have used this expertise to develop a software platform usable today on the Microsoft HoloLens. Ada is breakthrough technology that enhances communication and understanding amongst owners, decision makers and stakeholders like never before.
