Qualcomm creates a face-mounted Android tablet for industrial work

24 April 2019 2

Qualcomm recently launched their AI chips to compete with the established tech manufacturer Intel and Nvidia. The company has also been working on its 5G modem that we would be experiencing to see in a lot of smartphones coming up in the future. The company has now recently collaborated with RealWear to come up with a face-mounted 5G Android tablet which is named as HMZ-1 and HMZ-1Z1. These tablets would be face mounted on an industrial worker’s hard helmet offering him a view equivalent to seven-inch tablet extending in front of his eyes, supported on the helmet.


This setup would be used in Industrial work for a project in Kazakhstan where the workers would be able to utilize its 5G and it’s IoT sensor data. Through this setup, the entire process would be made speedy allowing faster troubleshooting helping the experts to consult with experts, connect to machines or retrieve data in environments with an extremely loud noise.

Unfortunately, this setup isn’t for consumers at the moment and was only designed for the project in Kazakhstan and won’t be made available in the consumer market. For this particular project, the device would be provided by UROS to industrial workers about 10,000 units, where the project would begin later in 2019.

Well, having a face-mounted Android tablet and that too supporting a 5G tech is quite commendable. Targeting industry workers for this purpose would be indeed handful for those people.
