Sleek new designer styled smart glasses based on waveguides and micro-LED displays expected to become available in 2021
Rochester, NY – September 2, 2020 – Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the Company is developing next generation product line of smart glasses powered by micro-LED technology that are expected to become available in 2021.
The next generation line of micro-LED powered smart glasses from Vuzix will range from a reasonably priced consumer-facing product to a higher end enterprise version with built-in cellular connectivity. The next generation Vuzix Smart Glasses will feature a larger field of view (FOV), advanced waveguide optics and binocular displays, including 3D, alongside Vuzix’ patent pending immersive stereo acoustic speakers ideal for privacy, performance and style. The noise-cancelling microphones will enable quality phone calls and voice/UI integration between the user and their phone. These stylish glasses are designed to be as small and as comfortable as possible, include dual batteries in the temples, and require no wires to operate. In addition to WiFi and Bluetooth, there will be a cellular LTE integration option, so a phone will not be required for hands communications and connectivity in most developed areas. All powered by a modern CPU running Android with support for third party applications.
“Vuzix has been working on wearable display technology for the last 20 years and we are excited to announce this culmination of breakthroughs in the development of our technology that opens the door for a new wave of consumer and enterprise smart glasses devices from Vuzix. A balance of technology, style and substance is embodied in the industrial design and specifications of our next generation smart glasses,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
