Plant logistics operators working in Volkswagen's facility in the German city of Wolfsburg are going to use 3D smart glasses that will enable with order-picking processes for auto parts such as shafts and windshields.

These glasses are equipped with the equivalent of a 25-inch HD screen, and have the ability to capture 5-megapixel photos and high quality 720p video. They are fitted with special bone conduction audio technology and feature Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.

Ultimately, these 3D smart glasses enable plant workers working for the German automaker to perform their work with greater efficiency, and could ultimately be used to free up time for more diverse tasks. They are a great example of how humans and technological systems can work together to accomplish a high level of industrial work.
