About Realmax, Inc

Our mission is to improve human understanding by making augmented reality accessible to everyone. We believe that one day, almost everyone will be wearing wearable AR devices. But the first contact most people will have with AR glasses will be when they borrow them for a special experience. In 2019 we expect to see many users, wearing our glasses as they shop for a car, visit a museum, or play esports and arcade games. From our Bellingham laboratories in the Pacific Northwest, we continue to develop and improve our hardware, software, and cloud services. With the Realmax 100 now in use by early customers, we are rapidly learning about new opportunities for this technology.

From the CEO

I’m the CEO, Nigel Burton. I spent 21 years at Microsoft where I had multiple roles including being a general manager (GM) in developer tools division, a GM in Microsoft China, and GM of the US Small and Medium Business division. I retired from Microsoft in 2011. Subsequently, I started a software company that worked with Epson, Meta, Immy, and other US AR companies.

I was always unhappy with AR field-of-view. However some web searches led me to Jerry – a Chinese inventor who had *big* FOV glasses at CES 2015. I connected with Jerry and together, in Shanghai, we made Realmax. We launched the Realmax 100 at CES, and gave 3200 demos. Tom’s Guide named us Best AR of the entire expo, and we’ve been taking on clients ever since.

About the Realmax 100

The new untethered Realmax 100 glasses have over 100-degree field of view providing free movement to walk unhindered in a world that smoothly integrates real and virtual reality. The adjustable AR glasses fit comfortably over most prescription eyewear and hairstyles. There is support for an included 6DOF controller or an external gesture sensor. The glasses are powered using the high-performance Snapdragon Qualcomm 835 processor that allows the Realmax 100 to provide a multiplayer platform that encourages social interactions in different environments both indoors and outdoors. Finally, these AR glasses can in seconds be converted to VR glasses by attaching magnetic shades.
