Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), a global pioneer in wearable technologies for training and simulation, industrial and enterprise markets, today unveils its Golden-i™ Infinity smart screen, the first voice- and gesture-controlled wearable device that supports Android and Windows 10-based computing solutions. Specifically designed to leverage off the investments already made by enterprise and industrial companies, Golden-i Infinity adds a smart head-worn display and hands-free voice control to smartphones and mini PCs for improved productivity.

Setting Golden-i Infinity apart from all other wearable display solutions targeting enterprise users is its intuitive design and noise-robust voice user interface. Golden-i Infinity doesn't require any touching, tapping or swiping, users simply control it by voice. With simple commands, users can access schematics in manufacturing, view repair documents for field service, collaborate with remote experts, view utility and energy information and more. Additionally, it features nine-axis head tracking with stabilization, a three-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer. As a whole, this sophisticated tracking system takes into account the effects of the earth's magnetic field on the user's geo-position and movement of the head – providing unrivaled tracking accuracy for applications requiring incredible precision.

Golden-i Infinity combines Kopin's industry leading display and Whisper® voice extraction technologies to provide a smart screen that is easily controlled by head gesture and voice, even under very noisy environment. Weighing just about 1.5 oz, Golden-i Infinity clips on to a standard pair of safety glasses, bump caps or hardhat. Connected to a host device (cellphone or mini PC) via USB Type-C cable, Golden-i Infinity serves as a seamless input/output terminal of the host device, relying on the host device's processor, wireless connection, storage and battery. Kopin's innovative patent-pending user interface software enables Golden-i Infinity to work with existing applications of host devices right out of the box – no need to create products-specific apps, while users don't have to relearn the software they already know how to use. Golden-i Infinity supports many applications, including POV Camera, Barcode Reader, ZOOM Video Conferencing, Media Gallery, Media Player/Recorder, Voice Dictation, Text Messaging, Report and Form Completion, Language Translation, and more.

"Modular, head-mounted smart screen will unlock the next level of workforce productivity," said Mike McMahon, Kopin's vice president of sales and marketing. "Golden-i Infinity smart screen allows companies to increase worker productivity while maximizing the return on investments by converting existing tools into hands-free voice-activated machines. In addition, Golden-i Infinity does not add any security risk because it does not store any data."

"Kopin's Golden-i Infinity solves several issues facing users," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's AR/VR research team. "First, its modular and lightweight design makes it easy for users to wear —whether on their glasses, goggles or a hardhat—for an entire shift. Second, because it sips from a host device, it is IT 'future-proof' while keeping power consumption to a minimum. And third, it leverages Kopin's display and audio DNA not only to bring information to the wearer but allow them to interact with it in the simplest means possible. By addressing these pain points, Golden-i Infinity has the potential to significantly encourage AR adoption."

Golden-i Infinity is also military tough, featuring a ruggedized IP67 waterproof and drop-proof design, and packs a ton of integrated technology designed to help users tackle any job, including:

  • WVGA (854x480) resolution, 20-degree field-of-view display with six-axis movement allowing users to easily achieve the perfect viewing position, and the zoom level is controlled by voice
  • High brightness display (up to 2000 nits) with automatic light sensor to maintain the perfect display brightness levels in all environments
  • Whisper™ voice extraction and four digital beamforming microphones for seamless voice control and crystal-clear voice communication even in the noisiest environments
  • Software stabilized nine-axis head tracking with three-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer
  • 13-megapixel point-of-view camera capable of 1080p resolution at 30 fps
  • 95 dBA loudspeaker
  • Magnetic universal harness to allow for quick and simple attachment and detachment to any style of safety glasses, bump caps and hardhats, and can be mounted for either left or right eye use

Golden-i Infinity was purpose-built for enterprise level clients that want a wearable computing solution designed to increase worker productivity, improve worker efficiency and reduce work-related errors. It is scheduled for release in Q3 2018 and will be available through professional value-added resellers (VARs) at an MSRP of $899.00.

Golden-i Infinity will be on display and demonstrable at Kopin's booth (Booth: 313) at Augmented World Expo (AWE) 2018, taking place in Santa Clara, California on May 30th through June 1st.
