RealWear Explorer 4.0 is Ready For Download RealWear Explorer 4.0 is Ready For Download
We’re excited to announce the release of RealWear Explorer 4.0. This handy tool is designed to streamline app development for the HMT platform.
RealWear Explorer mirrors the display of the HMT-1 onto a desktop or laptop computer screen.
From a developer’s perspective, this means you don’t need to keep looking at the micro-display to see what your application is doing. Instead, view a large version of the same screen right on your desktop or laptop. This makes it even easier to develop new applications for the HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 or optimize existing solutions.

Global Telecom Leader Honored For Training With AR
Verizon was recently recognized by Training Magazine for their ingenious use of AR and VR in training. Verizon used RealWear HMT-1 in their Digital Apprentice program. This program featured live and online performance support through the voice-operated HMT-1 for 53 field technicians in Verizon’s pilot in 2018.
As part of this program, Verizon used the Remote Mentor connected worker solution from RealWear partner UBiMAX on the HMT-1.
Ultimately, Verizon’s field technicians, network engineers, and dispatch managers will be trained on the Digital Apprentice program from late 2018 through 2019.
Verizon’s program earned the most points of all programs surveyed in this issue of Training Magazine. Points were awarded based on the following criteria:
  • Business outcomes achieved/expectations met
  • Level of potential business impact
  • Difficulty of challenges faced
  • Innovation of training
  • Instructional design
  • Project scope
Verizon’s Innovation and Design Leader Fraser Bowie gave us the shout-out on LinkedIn. You can view Fraser’s original LinkedIn post here.
