Gravity Jack, a Washington state-based technology company, has announced a new augmented reality system called PoindextAR. The program promises to be able to track even the finest details of objects in 3D, displaying those objects with any necessary annotations through a user-friendly, camera-connected interface.
In terms of practical usage, PoindextAR is slated to be used in industrial settings. It can be programmed to read various machinery, such as turbines or engine parts, and it can then display pertinent info about these items through a tablet. Such a system would make it significantly easier for less knowledgeable people to understand the workings of a piece of machinery or for experienced mechanics to approach new engine or turbine models.
