The new Vuzix microLED smart glasses look like the ones you want to wear in public

At CES 2021, Vuzix, a wearable technology and augmented reality company, is back with another pair of its smart glasses, this time with new advances. The latest pair is powered by microLED technology, thanks to a Partnership with the Chinese company Jade Bird Display. MicroLED screens have appeared in recent years as viable alternatives to OLED screens. It drives progress mostly in the field of television.

However, technology in this context allows for very small but powerful projectors to be installed on both sides of the smart glasses, which, according to Vuzix sources, appear very close to something you might feel comfortable with in public spaces on a daily basis.

In combination with Vuzix waveguide technology and rendering engine optics to map the image onto the interior of the glass, the result is a great-looking tool that can display a monochrome or color hologram on both lenses at a variety of pixel density and resolution, depending on the requirements of the software.

Similar to Google Glass, Vuzix smart glasses are more vertical displays than true augmented reality devices and are designed to reflect information from a paired smartphone.

There are a few other bells and whistles with this device. Vuzix says the device will support optional Wi-Fi and LTE, as well as stereo speakers and noise-canceling microphones. There will also be gesture-based touch controls supported by Android and iOS, presumably to control accompanying mobile apps using only the sides of the smart glasses.

Of course, due to the hypothetical nature of CES this year, we weren’t able to try these smart glasses as we usually do on the show floor, so we can’t say much about the image quality, comfort, frame design, or any software support. But Vuzix isn’t really targeting the consumer market with a Google Glass device, which necessarily ensures you get a business first impression of how well it works.

Vuzix smart glasses, which are more in the field of single displays than real augmented reality, aim more towards the enterprise, especially after Intel acquired a 30 percent stake in the Rochester, New York Corporation Back in 2015. The shift towards workplace-focused augmented reality and virtual reality products accelerated through the slow adoption of headphones and consumer-oriented glasses, as well as a general lack of breakthrough developments in core technology that would facilitate an iPhone-style moment for field.

That’s why we’ve seen and heard so little about Microsoft’s HoloLens, second-generation Google Glass, and Magic Leap augmented reality glasses in the years since these gadgets debuted, all while Facebook quietly continues to pour money into Oculus and remain one of very few companies. The big technology that is still actively working in virtual reality.

The lukewarm consumer reception of augmented reality and virtual reality products hasn’t stopped some big names from trying consumer smart glasses.
