Have you ever heard of dynaEdge? This is Toshiba’s newest AR headset focused on enterprise usage. As surprising as this may seem, there is a full-blown Windows 10 Professional PC attached to it.

As far as usage is concerned, you can easily fit it over one eye so that you can remove the display and focus on what’s around you. This device is perfect for factory tasks, verifying checklists, and more.

It remains to be seen how comfortable this AR headset is when used for long hours. Some users reported feeling a bit cross-eyed when using the device. This means that some potential users might experience some eye disconfort when using this tool.

This new AR headset focuses on productivity

However, from a design point of view, this headset is not that appealing, as Toshiba preferred to focus on the productivity tasks instead.

For decades, Toshiba has been instrumental in streamlining the operations of businesses around the world through cutting-edge, mobile computing technologies. Much like how laptops have increased office productivity by enabling workers to take their PCs with them anywhere they go, we believe that wearable PCs combined with smart glasses will take on-the-job productivity to a whole new dimension.

Workers can use this device to go through PDFs, watch videos, use QR markers to scan through items, and much more.

However, when it comes to implementing AR devices to work, there are some challenges that are worth mentioning. The first one regards the IT security challenges of implementing such a powerful device into the workflow. The second one involves training the workers to be able to properly use the tool and get the most out of its capabilities.

Toshiba’s choice to rely on Windows 10 for this headset is a bit surprising taking into account Android’s popularity. However, let us not forget that Windows 10’s adoption rate is very high among enterprise users, so this may explain Toshiba’s choice.

Powered by a 6th generation Intel CPU, Toshiba’s AR headset has a $1,899 price tag.
