Nimo has integrated generative AI into the OS, with support for Windows and Mac.
Kochi-based Nimo Planet, a company specialising in spatial computers, recently introduced Nimo Spacial OS and Nimo Core. The pre-production version of Nimo is now available to select early users through their website.
Nimo OS and Nimo Core, along with Nimo Glass, to create a portable spatial computing system for users worldwide. These components are designed to provide a personalised, multi-screen workspace experience for the modern workforce.
The generative AI inside the OS is NimoGPT, which the company says is the first step towards creating deep GenAI for spatial computers.
Rohildev, the founder of the company said, “Nimo 1 is highly optimised for Keyboard, Mouse and Trackpad interactions. We felt that for productivity these interfaces are better than hand tracking. But we are working on something that will replace keyboard and mouse in the future.”
Their technology combines a pocket-sized computer and a virtual private display to eliminate the limitations of using various devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops. This setup ensures better usability and portability, addressing the challenges of mobile computing for the average office worker.
The idea was to optimise resources efficiently, reducing CPU and memory usage while rendering up to six high-fidelity 3D screens. This approach enhances performance, battery life, and minimises heat generation, especially during multitasking.
Nimo Planet’s was founded in 2018 by Rohildev Nattukallingal with the aim of creating a pocket-sized computer that enhances productivity with impressive multi-screen workspaces. This unique computer and its accompanying OS represent their response to this challenge, addressing the problem in a singular way.
Nimo 1 glasses offer similar features to Apple Vision Pro at half the price. It lacks built-in speakers or Apple’s M2 chips but uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 processor, suitable for spatial computing. While not as powerful as Apple Vision Pro, Nimo offers a similar user interface with wireless mouse functionality for application management.
The company stands out by allowing users to switch between six virtual screens by turning their head. Widgets like a calendar can be placed at the top, and settings like Wi-Fi are easily accessible below, resembling Apple’s promises. Nimo is sleeker than Apple Vision Pro, although its arms remain bulky, supporting touch inputs for Bluetooth keyboard and mouse convenience. The company has raised $150 thousand dollars from 7 investors.
