XYZ Reality, a world-leading augmented reality (AR) developer in the construction industry, received two prestigious Red Dot Design Awards for its Engineering Grade ARTM headset, known as the AtomTM, in both the innovative products and tools categories.

The Red Dot Award, dating back 60 years, is an international design competition for product design, communication design, and design concepts known for recognizing preeminent design and innovation across industries. Entries are evaluated by a panel of 50 internationally recognized experts.

ATOM is an augmented reality headset developed for the construction industry that uses an onboard computer and waveguide displays to project 3D holograms of architectural models into the worker’s field of vision. This, combined with a PPE safety certification shell helmet, makes it possible to inspect work in progress and complete work in real-time, rather than relying on traditional inspection methods that only identify defects after the work is complete.

XYZ’s ATOM Headset joins the ranks of Honda, Nikon, ASSA ABLOY, and Govee to name a few.  

In a statement from the jury, “The ATOM AR headset is a convincing demonstration of how the clever implementation of new technologies can make work on the construction site easier.”

According to David Mitchell, Founder and CEO of XYZ, reflecting on the recognition, “This award is not only a testament to the quality and efficacy of the Atom but also to the world-class talent we have across our company. To receive recognition like this from the international design community in not one, but two categories is a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of our team and shows that our hardware has relevance, significance and, most importantly, definitively answers a persistent challenge for its target audience. Red Dot builds on previous successes since the product’s launch and puts us in an even stronger position as XYZ Reality expands globally, bringing the benefits of the Atom to a global construction audience.”
