GetVu is ushering in augmented reality to revolutionise the way warehouses and shop floors work

When you enter GetVu’s office in Bengaluru, you are likely to find people wearing weird looking glasses and trying to grasp something from thin air. A few others are wired to their computers oblivious to their surroundings. Looking a lot like the Facebook Oculus Rift, their glass product is called PikVu, which the three co-founders have developed using augmented reality (AR). It is now being used in warehouses to improve the efficiency of the workers by almost 25%. Its second product, RemoteVu, enables a service engineer to view faulty machinery from a remote location. It was one of those things that the 20-somethings did for fun and eventually turned into a phenomenon.
