AML, a Texas-based manufacturer of barcode data collection products, announced last week it plans to launch Dragonfly, the company’s “wearable computer,” at the upcoming MODEX Supply Chain Expo in Atlanta March 11-14; AML will be at Booth No. C7288. 

The Dragonfly Wearable Computer is equipped with the most powerful processing architecture available for devices in its class, featuring the Qualcomm QCS6490 processor running Android 13 at 2.7 GHz, the company said in a Feb. 23 news release.  

AML said Dragonfly’s 4.3-inch display is optimized for maximum viewing area while keeping size and weight “comfortably wearable.” The Dragonfly features a wearable platform that lowers the center of gravity and keeps it closer to the user’s arm, making for a more secure fit and feel.

“With the explosive growth of distribution facilities, fueled by e-commerce, the need for speed, accuracy, and efficiency inspires the adoption of wearable devices like the Dragonfly, which frees up both hands for put-away and picking,” AML President Mike Kearby said.  

“While there will always be a need for handheld devices, the demand for wearable devices is accelerating, and we think the American-Made Dragonfly resolves some of the deficiencies in the products available on the market today,” Kearby added.

The Dragonfly will have various accessories, including ring scanners, top-of-hand scanners, charging stations, and an optional 21-key tactile keypad. A panoply of software utilities back the wearable computer for rapid deployment, remote device management, and secure web browsing.
