According tomedia reports, if smart glasses want to enter the mainstream need to be like ordinary glasses can be integrated into people’s lives, Vuzix believes that its next generation of digital glasses may have such an advantage. Recently, this new smart glasses debuted. At first glance, even at first glance, these glasses can easily be mistaken for ordinary prescription glasses, without any obvious technical advantages.
Without a huge battery or oversized frame, this product attempts to offset the large amount of technology that smart glasses need to accommodate. However, unlike the audio-only eye frame, Vuzix is still equipped with a transparent display.
The glasses are based on a new type of ultra-thin bicep wave guide, one at a time. They work with the new miniature LED projector — again, without one — 1 micron pixel. Vuzix says it is developing monochrome and color versions with a larger field of view and support for 3D. It is important to note that they do not prevent the glasses arm from folding properly.
Vuzix says the glasses don’t need to be fitted with an oversized battery because they need enough power. Instead, a dual battery is embedded in the eyeglass’s temple position, which Vuzix estimates can keep the glasses running for hours.
The sound side is equipped with multiple microphones for ambient noise elimination and is integrated with the acoustic chamber into the rear frame. This means that the wearer will be able to hear sound from smart glasses — whether it’s a phone call or some kind of UI feedback — without sacrificing the perception of the sounds of their surroundings, Vuzix said. However, those around you should not hear what the glasses say to the wearer.
Unlike smart glasses, which need to be permanently connected to the phone for processing and connectivity, Vuzix even claims to have embedded all of them in the frame. Although the glasses can be connected via WiFi and Bluetooth, they also have options for built-in LTE, and the glasses themselves are pre-installed with the Android operating system. Manipulation can be done with voice or tapping the touch arm, and they should be able to run third-party apps, as people expect on any Android device.
It remains to be seen how many of these features Vuzix will eventually have. The company said it expects the technology to be available in 2021. They will then bring a “affordable” consumer version and a more complex enterprise version of the integrated cellular network.
