With it’s patented “Flip-Vu” technology, exceptional image quality and form factor, Optinvent’s ORA-S provides an extraordinary visual experience. The display can be flipped up into true “AR” mode, directly in the line of sight for immersive experiences, or flipped down to “Glance” mode where digital information becomes less obtrusive. These two visualization modes greatly enhance the user experience and ergonomics, depending on the use case and situation.

Wikitude’s proven SDK will allow for a premium experience and app developers can now build their own amazing never before seen applications. Optinvent is proud to have Wikitude as a partner,” says Optinvent CEO
