摘要:除了在笔记本领域推出新品以外,联想还在AR/VR领域发力,近日推出了ThinkReality,这是一套针对企业级用户的解决方案,从其设计和官方对产品的描述来推测,联想应该是希望将其打造为微软 HoloLens 的竞争者。

In addition to introducing new products in the notebook field, Lenovo is also working in the AR/VR field. Recently, Lenovo launched ThinkReality, which is a solution for enterprise users. From its design and official description of the product, Lenovo is supposed to be a competitor for Microsoft HoloLens. The whole ThinkReality system consists of two parts, AR hardware and corresponding software platform. The hardware part is called ThinkReality A6, which is equipped with two pre-fisheye cameras, a depth sensor and a 13MP RGB sensor. The ThinkReality system also carries a voice-controlled microphone, and the device can optimize resolution and related navigation interactions according to the direction your eyes are looking at. Lenovo's A6 is equipped with a 3D oF controller and a 6,800 mAh battery that can last up to four hours without plugging in. The headwear part of A6 is only 380g. Lenovo designed the device as a display and operation split structure in order to improve the comfort of wearing. In addition to the head-mounted device, A6 also has an SSD-sized computing box loaded with MYRON 845 processors to drive the Android platform, and Intel's Movidius chip to help implement optical waveguides. After wearing A6, each eye of the user will have a visual range of about 40 degrees and a resolution of 1080p. As for the operation box, it can be hung on the waist or arm. But what really makes ThinkReality and HoloLens competitive is Lenovo's software platform. According to company representatives, the purpose of the project is to "provide enterprises with the ability to create AR applications such as training and streamlining workflow by themselves". But Lenovo also said it would give OS options to corporate customers, rather than limiting them to limited options such as Lenovo proprietary systems or Microsoft platforms. On the ThinkReality platform, users can "screen, interact or collaborate in the real world with 3D digital information". Officials also highlighted the openness of the platform. You can choose different cloud services such as AWS or Microsoft Azure, but you don't have to use Lenovo's hardware to run ThinkReality software (like Oculus Rift). Up to now, there is no real open AR/VR headwear device ecosphere in the market, which can cooperate with different software used by different enterprises. When Microsoft launched HoloLens 2, it hinted that it wanted its platform to be "open", but at least at this stage, the goal of breaking the closed system has not yet been achieved. Now Lenovo also hopes to make an attempt through ThinkReality.
