Read this interview with Pascal Lessard, product Specialist for SAP's Augmented Reality Portfolio, to learn about SAP's Google Glass prototype and how augmented reality, Extended Warehouse Management, the SAP Mobile Platform 2.0, and the Cloud are working together to create a better warehouse environment. Get the details on how it all works together.

Pascal Lessard is a Product Specialist for SAP’s Augmented Reality Portfolio who traveled from Montreal to attend TechEd in Las Vegas. When I met him, he was wearing a pair of Google Glass glasses, which is something I’d never seen before, and manning a booth dedicated to SAP’s latest forays into augmented reality. His work involves Extended Warehouse Management and Google Glass and he was willing to take some time to tell me all about it.

What is SAP doing right now in augmented reality?

Currently we are developing some applications and prototypes using augmented reality. So, for example, we’re using head-mounted displays like Google Glass and other kinds of Glass, as well as iPads and tablets, to be able to leverage augmented reality and the different pillars from SAP, such as SAP Mobile Platform 3.0, and the Cloud, as well as HANA.
