+They love us:
+Let’s start with: Why?
Don't you hate it...
When a great technology gets trapped in corporate politics!
When the price tag becomes an obstacle between a hacker and his wear!Ladies & Gentlemen,
Like it or hate it; Augmented Reality is coming... soon the world will have more A.R. headsets than mobile phones …
But unfortunately, the whole industry is fragmented… every company will restrict its tools to its own languages and apps … and we are afraid that A.R. will be trapped in such corporate politics…
So, we decided to do something about it …
Where we all stand together to advance this great technology …
Something any one can use, on any smart phone…
Something any hacker can program on; using any languages…
Something affordable and reliable for serious real life solutions …
An open A.R. solution; hardware and software for all …
+So, What is HattrickWear?
HattrickWear is a cool specially designed hat with an extension where you can plug your mobile phone easily, then utilize its screen and camera through a pair of reflecting prisms. You can easily interact with your mobile by swiping the screen, voice commands and gestures or even by using our simple remote control.
The hat is designed with a unique structure so it balances all the weight around your head comfortably. The prisms are custom-made very light weight and easy to attach and adjust. They’re big enough to show your creativity but without bothering your vision. It works with all mobile phones; it opens endless possibilities for you to show your creativity in all forms & formats by utilizing a wealth of apps and APIs available on these platforms.DESIGN FEATURES:
+ Very easy one step to plug in/out your mobile.
+ The hat is redesigned with a special structure to distribute the weight around your head, Easy to customize the size.
+ The prisms are light weight, crystal clear, scratch resistance, 180 rotating, easy to attach and adjust.
+ The extension is removable; to wash the hat etc.
+ Easy to swipe the screen and access all the mobile buttons and jacks.
+ Easy to use remote control.
( Unfortunately, Since the remote is very dependent on apps functionality, we had to delay its production)
After studying all the components and requirements, we’ve realized that what we were really doing is building a small smart phone then attach it to our heads!!? No wonder it’ll be expensive, inefficient and looks weird!!
It was easy to make it better, but to make it affordable; we decided to utilize the power of mobile phones and their rich platforms…
All what we had to do is just make it look cool…
+It looks cool; but where will I use HattrickWear?
Basically, wherever you require powerful, instant and uninterrupted computing.
Or just to be the center of attention and attract all the right questions ;-)
With all these powers; we’re pretty sure that you’ll create wonders we can’t even imagine… but here are couple of examples:
1. Security: We’re working with an agency where they needed a fast and secure way to instantly identify faces of all their visitors.
2. Sports applications: Golf, Archery or shooting practice, sports analysis etc..
3. Reliable filming and live telecast.
