The company said that users can receive work instructions and other information by simply touching the object which has malfunctioned. Task results can also be input using gestures so that the whole operation can be carried out in a smooth and efficient manner.

The device can be used for example in an oil rig, or a factory or any other workplace. Users of this device can put on Fujitsu augmented reality glasses, wear the glove and from there on arrows are projected in front of the user’s eyes to direct towards the source of the malfunctioned unit or problem and thereby help you fix it.

Once the repair has been done, the glove automatically files updates with a flick of a digit to record it. The system there after records every time maintenance is performed.

The intelligent glove and the augmented reality glasses will not be available until 2015. The back-end system is already in use in factories in Japan where workers use tablets to troubleshoot problems and perform maintenance tasks.
