Infocom will launch the Am Comic application in mid-2014.

Infocom America, Inc., a subsidiary of Infocom (JASDAQ: 4348) - a global technology company, has created the first platform for viewing comics on a wearable device. The application, Am Comic, has been developed for Google Glass™ and will be launched in mid 2014. A beta version of the product will be demonstrated at OMNI EXPO in Orlando, Florida on May 23-25.

The application was created with the belief that comics are a timeless enjoyment and head-up displays (HUD) are a new medium that provide fans with an easier and more accessible way to view comics. With Am Comic, users can view panels by tilting their head, swiping the touch pad, and in the future through “voice actions.” In Japan, Infocom is the largest digital comic distributor and has strong connections with content providers. They would like to expand their business in the United States and are seeking American comic and anime content providers to power their applications.    

In addition to developing Am Comic, Infocom has developed several other applications for Google Glass: Recipe Viewer, Handsome Guy, and Presentation Notes. Interested parties should contact Infocom to learn more about the applications.
