"The partnership with APX Labs demonstrates the scalability of our Jet smart eyewear platform into industrial markets," said Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments.

"Skylight was built for the people who build, fix, move and operate things for their job," said Brian Ballard, co-Founder and CEO of APX Labs. "With Jet and Skylight, we can increase productivity with real-time, hands-free access to information, applications and remote experts, The fact that Jet was developed to withstand harsh outdoor environments while maintaining a highly wearable form factor makes it a terrific new addition to the Skylight ecosystem."
