A new welding helmet vision utilizing mixed reality and thermal imaging solutions to enable precise welds that meet the high industry standards
Understanding the user
Understanding the welders and their needs to further develop the design direction was crucial. Welders are very proud of their work and want this to reflect in the gear they use. The product was designed to primarily attract the younger generation of welders who are used to connected and smart products.
Sketches were produced in several rounds of iterations, in parallel with cad models and mock-ups to both find a design language that would fit Flir in this completely new context as well as refining the functional elements of the product.
