Finnish RealMax Oy is part of the RealMax Group, which is one of the leading companies within Augmented Reality. The company offers a complete AR ecosystem consisting of both hardware and software. RealMax primarily addresses AR in industrial, medical and education sectors where its AR smart glasses, RealWear HMT-1, meets the most challenging requirements.

We see Crunchfish as one of the leading providers on the market and its gesture control software combined with RealWear HMT-1 voice control solution can enable the market’s most effective user experience in AR smart glasses,” says Matti Vappula, Director, Business Development at RealMax.
