South Korean Company Maxst Unveils Two New AR Products at CES 2017

Maxst, a Seoul, South Korea-based augmented reality (AR) company, is introducing two new AR products Thursday at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This year’s convention runs Jan. 5-8.

Vivar is an AR-based video call platform that allows the sharing of 3D contents, video clips and images during a call. Vivar also features a drawing function which allows users to view AR drawings simultaneously. As one user draws on a screen, the other user(s) can see the drawing being made to scale in real time.

The second product Maxst will unveil and demonstrate is AR smart glasses called Revelio. Revelio is a pair of stereoscopic smart glasses and a standalone device that does not require any other accessories like a controller. It is simple to use, the company says, and designed to be lightweight (less than 190 grams), while providing features such as Octa core CPU, 2 G memory, 40 degrees field of view and a 720-pixel display.

“We decided to exhibit our new products at CES 2017 in order to show the world the superior AR technology of Maxst while seeking a chance to find a new business partner,” said Maxst CEO Jaewan Park in a statement. “Even after attending CES, we will keep developing AR products that will make our life more convenient.”

Maxst is the only Korean exhibitor among AR companies to showcase at the booths of CES 2017, the company said in a news release. Maxst’s booth is in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 2— 26637.
