Vuzix Smart Glasses are smarter than they make you look
Video is displayed on a 1.4mm thick polymer waveguide lens with “input and output hologram structures on the surface which squeezes the light down the waveguide and then two dimensionally expands the image back into the user’s eye”. Got that?
While the science may be somewhat beyond us, what it means is that Vuzix and Nokia have created a heads-up display that will fit within a pair of glasses and display video over what you can see at night and even in full daylight.
There are two lines in development – full-on binocular/glasses design and a monocular that can flip down in front of one eye like you’re doing the Death Star trench run.
The possibilities for augmented reality are massive, as current setups are held back by the clunky annoyance of having to look through another device.
Vuzix reckons we’ll be seeing (through) both versions in autumn.
