The Conversation

I’ve broken my conversation with Andy into two parts. In this first part, Andy starts by sharing a close encounter he had with a Russian ship when he was in the Navy.

We go on to discuss the use of smartglasses in industrial settings. Andy shares the insights he gained at DAQRI, and how he applied them to RealWear.

We also talk about the impact of changing demographics on today’s workforce, and Andy shares his perspective on how humans and computers will work together more symbiotically in the future.
