Some of you may not know this about me, but I spent most of my childhood as a competitive swimmer. To this day, I am convinced it is one of the best workouts you can possibly do — it not only requires muscular and cardiovascular strength, but an acute awareness of your body and mental focus. So along comes Imagination Factory to assist with the latter part with SwimAR, a heads-up display that attaches to a swimmer’s goggles.
During training or distance events, it is important to keep track of laps, split times, and distance. Using Sony’s LMX-001 waveguide holographic display technology, SwimAR provides the swimmer with real-time information (versus keeping track of a clock, stopwatch, and/or lap counter) and a configurable virtual competitor, against whom you can race, to improve training efficacy.
Sony plans to release a small quantity of SwimAR later this year and into 2019. You can sign up for more info at the second source link below.
