Vuzix Demonstrates New Waveguide Augmented Reality (AR) Technology

ROCHESTER, NY -- Vuzix Corporation, supplier of Video Eyewear and Smart Glasses products in the consumer, enterprise, and entertainment markets, has released a short video demonstrating its new waveguide augmented reality (AR) technology. The clip shows raw video footage viewed through the waveguide at Vuzix' New York corporate offices.

Consumer awareness and interest in AR is beginning to build, as was highlighted in the New York Times published article entitled 'Pokemon Go Brings Augmented Reality to a Mass Audience.' Paul Travers commented that "the success of Pokémon Go represents one of the first use cases to bring AR into the consumer world and shows just how huge this can be. We believe that Vuzix new waveguide technology is key in the evident progression that takes AR to the next level."

Vuzix has been a pioneer and leader in the AR space and has built and sold AR products for over a decade, including its award winning AR hardware and ride-system used at the Japanese Worlds' Fair in 2004, as well as a variety of other AR products. There is already a growing awareness of AR, and acceptance of it in Enterprise, leading to significant cost efficiencies and production advances in the workplace; with numerous Fortune 500 companies using AR on Vuzix Smart Glasses in industrial settings providing hands free access to digital information directly connected to the real world.

With the forthcoming Vuzix M3000 and AR3000 augmented reality glasses, the wearer will be able to reach out and interact with virtual 3D objects overlaid in the real world. The M3000 and AR3000 will accommodate the adoption of powerful AR applications with advanced operator support for many enterprise, industrial and medical uses.
