Last night GoRout, a Rochester-based football hardware and software startup, launched their newest product, Vue-Up, during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Vue-Up is football’s first in-helmet, heads-up display, which will change the way that players and coaches approach the sport.
Vue-Up is a lightweight, military grade display that is embedded into the helmet, allowing for instant communication between players and coaches and enabling each player to see the exact route they need to run for each play. Vue-Up has a 1280 x 720 bright HD display with the largest focal plane ever for this type of product. Vue-Up comes with a 4MP instant-on video camera, capturing the viewpoint for each player on the field. The device is also voice controlled and learns and identifies individual voices through artificial intelligence.
GoRout also announced the release of GoRout Air, their newest update to on-field networking. Now you can just turn on any of their products anywhere in the continental United States, and it’s ready to go. No more routers or syncing required.
And all this was developed right here in Rochester, Minnesota.
Congrats to Mike Rolih and his team on this latest success and thanks for letting us all be a part of it.
