"It works across a variety of devices and is used today by companies like Boeing, GE and many others around the world," he added.

Boeing workers use the software on smart glasses during wire harness assembly on some commercial aircraft.

"It allows the technicians to see their work instructions -- which are very complicated, detailed work instructions -- while they're doing their tasks," said English.

The software enables workers to perform complex, hands-on tasks, and simultaneously access information and managers.
