Nain Inc.

As a result, Nain, following its collaboration via investment from Takasago Thermal Engineering Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo/President and Representative Director: Atsushi Ouchi) (October 2019, https://www.nain.jp/ja/news/tte-capital-allocation-20191012/), entered a collaboration as well as a capital and business alliance for a total of 260 million yen this round. We, Nain, will continue to raise funds for the expansion of our projects, such as our AR Service, which utilizes Hearable technology in addition to the Field Assist Service. Nain was founded in 2014 under the key phrase, "Sa Yo Na Ra Screens." Nain is also the industry's pioneer in planning, developing, and delivering Zeeny, a B2C-friendly Hearable device with Voice notifications. We’ve been providing Apps and services that apply technology cultivated by Zeeny to many audio equipment manufacturers both domestically and globally. We believe in making people's daily lives more effective by using Hearables, saving their precious time from being consumed by taking too long tinkering with smartphone screens. Field Assist Service provides solutions that intuitively convey information via sound to field workers who cannot take their hands and eyes off their work, improving safety and productivity. AR Service for Travelers delivers more accurate, intuitive, and customized information through the development of new positioning technology using 3D sensors and computer vision, relieving the traveler's worry of not knowing the way or local language. Concerning this project, some products under development will be exhibited at the Portable Audio Festival held in Akihabara on December 14 (Sat) and 15 (Sun). https://www.paudiofes.com/ Details of the projects Nain is strengthening in the future are as follows.
