Wearable Devices Announces Mudra Band's Compatibility with RealWear and Nreal Smart Glasses

YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, May 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wearable Devices Ltd. (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW) (“Wearable Devices” or the “Company”), a technology growth company developing AI-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced that the Company’s Mudra technology is now compatible with the product lines of two leading augmented reality (AR) glasses manufacturers: RealWear and Nreal.


RealWear targets the industrial sector with applications across energy and utilities, oil and gas, manufacturing, automotive, and more, and Nreal develops AR glasses targeting a variety of different applications in the consumer space. Over the past few weeks, Wearable Devices has conducted trials in its laboratories and successfully developed a new seamless user experience to control and operate both brands of glasses using intuitive hand gestures with the Mudra Band. RealWear glasses were tested using their built-in industrial application, and Nreal glasses were tested using a mirrored smartphone on the glass’s lenses.


"We are excited to showcase the synergies between Mudra Band and smart glasses from RealWear and Nreal,” commented Offir Remez, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Wearable Devices. “Soon, smart glasses users will enjoy a seamless, intuitive and more productive way to use their glasses. Our cutting-edge technology provides a natural way to control and operate connected devices which have no keyboard or mouse, and the compatibility with a wide range of AR glasses expands our market reach to additional segments in addition to the Apple ecosystem.”


Wearable Devices’ neural technology is already compatible with the interface of the Apple watch and additional Apple products. The new capabilities developed relating to AR glasses have the potential to increase synergies between Mudra Technology and AR glasses and develop further applications for both RealWear and Nreal products.

This achievement comes after the Company launched a user experience booth for its consumer product, the Mudra Band, in order to accelerate the beta testing phase by allowing a diverse range of users to experience the product.
