Video Press Release: TurboSite to Debut on Google Glass


Sergey Brin talks about Google Glass at TED 2013

DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- Jun 20, 2013 -- IMSI®/Design, a pioneer in mobile solutions for AEC and the global leader in retail CAD, announced at the 2013 AIA National Convention (booth #4316) that TurboSite® will be available for Google® Glass when the innovative smart device is launched later this year.

"We think Google Glass is a terrific platform for a site evaluation and field reporting app like TurboSite," stated Royal Farros, CEO of IMSI/Design.

Documenting walk-throughs and creating punch lists have been a physically-tiring process. The typical site inspection requires carrying a full set of building plans, digital camera, laptop, and even extra batteries. An architect, designer, or contractor is constantly setting up and breaking down their equipment setup with each item requiring documentation.

"Using Google Glass and TurboSite, we're literally letting someone to walk onto a job site carrying absolutely nothing," said Farros.

Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical, head-mounted display. A user -- carrying nothing but wearing the smart device glasses and running TurboSite -- will see building plans directly in front of them. GPS will track their movement through a drawing. The built-in eye glass camera will let them take pictures and record video and TurboSite will automatically insert these into a markup layer at the exact location. When the field report is finished, it is automatically printed for distribution or instantly sent electronically to the entire design and construction team.

"Anyone that has labored through a site inspection and has tried to distribute information will immediately understand the value in this combination," added Farros. "TurboSite and Google Glass make for quite the futuristic pair."
