Revolutionizing Collaboration in the Industrial Metaverse

Siemens CEO Dr. Roland Busch emphasizes that the mixed reality headset is a solution for collaborative problem-solving within the industrial metaverse, where people and AI interact seamlessly in real-time.

The headset boasts 4K OLED microdisplays and introduces unique controls—a traditional VR controller alongside a finger-worn controller.
