Vital Enterprises is an Augmented Reality software startup based in Silicon Valley. Vital creates a secure augmented reality quality assurance solution for highly skilled manual operators in complex manufacturing and field servicing environments. Our patent pending ZeroTouch™ technology for smart glasses delivers entirely hands-free communication capabilities and interaction with our intuitive data-display, essential for delicate manual work and work in confined spaces.
Vital began in August 2013, when software engineers Ash Eldritch and Aaron Vargas and Stanford vascular surgeon Oliver Aalami joined forces at a San Francisco hackathon. The team built a prototype to stream patient vital signs to Google Glass in real time.
Recognizing the tremendous potential of the technology to address the difficulties that knowledge workers have in accessing information and team support while engaged in critical tasks, the three founded Vital to bring their vision to a wide spectrum of environments, from operating rooms to satellite assembly cleanrooms and beyond.
