Choose the right tool for the job

Manifest supports a broad set of device options.  Choose a device optimized for AR content creation and viewing or one that promotes hands-free usage with voice commands and gesture navigation. Or stick with a PC and browser to optimize for data entry, procedure documentation and configuration. 

Head-mounted displays

AR headsets or head-mounted displays such as Microsoft’s HoloLens and the Magic Leap offer leading edge technology, support for augmented reality, and good hands-free navigation.

iPads provide an affordable and well-known device that often are already deployed. Decrease learning curves and leverage previous investments with this pragmatic choice. 

Browsers and PCs

Don’t forget the workhorse combination of the browser and PC. It is hard to beat the utility of this combination for text entry, configuration, and on-going management of Manifest work instructions.
