ODG showcased smart glasses with gesture control at AWE 2016

June 2, 2016

I just returned from AWE (Augmented World Expo) 2016 conference. AWE is the largest event dedicated to AR, VR and wearable technology.

At AWE 2016, ODG (Osterhout Design Group) showcased its smart glasses with gesture control.  Touch Display Research had a chance to try on the R-7 smart glasses and test the gesture control.
