VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Recon Instruments, the award-winning technology company behind the world's first consumer heads-up displays for sports and high-intensity environments, today announced it has been working with SAP to integrate its new Jet smart eyewear with augmented reality (AR) mobile apps from SAP SE (NYSE: SAP). Jet smart eyewear will enable workers in industries like manufacturing, field service and oil & gas to communicate clearly and access critical data at a glance, without interruption from the task at hand. Recon has been supporting SAP's development of AR mobile apps, which it anticipates will help accelerate expansion of Recon's innovative smart eyewear solution to multiple enterprise markets, helping to validate the Jet for multiple use cases beyond its core positioning in sports.
"Including integration support for SAP AR mobile apps in our Jet smart eyewear platform demonstrates the scalability of our platform in industrial markets," said Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments. "One of Recon's core philosophies is that smart eyewear can deliver measurable value in specific vertical markets with specific applications. We've defined the smart eyewear category on this basis. The integration of SAP's leading enterprise application software with the core capabilities of the Jet further underscores the strength of our approach."
