Toshiba is breaking into augmented reality with its workplace focused Windows 10 AR glasses, known as the dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses. To call this device AR glasses is a bit of a misnomer as the wearable functions more as assisted reality with its heads-up display. The whole system functions on a single-arm device that can be attached to several form factors, and is tethered to a Toshiba dynaEdge mini-PC via USB-C.
The dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses are focused on the workplace environment, and allow workers to view documents and PDFs, record and send photos and launch remote video chats from the headset. While the tethered mini PC does have a cluster of physical buttons, the idea behind the device is to use a touch-sensitive swipe pad or voice control.
