Realmax 100 CES 2019 Preview

The Realmax 100 at CES 2019 was one of the random devices I came across during my free time on the show floor. This is an augmented reality headset that featured a number of quick demos to get an idea of what it can do. I should have asked for a photo of myself with it I suppose as the presskit really didn't have any images which is strange. It came in a really nice case too, odd. At these events, you typically get that sort of thing.

Anyways, what is being pushed here to make it special is the 100.8 degree FOV optical system. This allows for a more immersive experience, a problem with many AR devices. It is also worth noting that this is AR/VR switchable with mag attach shades.

The field of view is often narrow in the AR market, but these ones had a decent setup going for it. I didn't actually notice at the time, but on reflection is was fairly good. The demos included things such as shooting blocks that would get pushed around, an art styled area where you could write names all around you and something with fish I believe. The first two were much more memorable for sure. It also had a small command button to hold which showed up digitally and it was neat. The various objects worked well in the world, but didn't exactly interact with it. The shapes looked good, and the shifting reset made the various demos appear correct in terms of where I was oriented standing wise.

When it comes to general information and specs there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 8 core CPU backing this. It has a 540GPU, 682DSP, 4GB ram with 64GB memory and UFS2.0. There's binocular 6DOF tracking with a price 9-axis IMU sensor. This is kept cool with a high performance active fan. The battery is 6000mah and that can be replaced if problems arise. Finally, it has Wifi and Bluetooth support for connection. If you wear glasses, it is prescription glasses compatible. You can read more from CES at the hub link below.
