For all the hype around smart glasses, none of them actually look like normal glasses. But Vuzix,
which develops wearable display technology for military and industrial
applications, plans to change that this summer by releasing a pair of
sleek wraparound shades that will let users see colorful images
projected over objects in the real world.
Vuzix CEO Paul Travers says his company’s sunglasses will not only be
less bulky and obtrusive than Google Glass, they’ll also provide an
augmented reality experience that actually resembles the one portrayed
in Google’s first promotional video for Glass, in which useful bits of information like navigational cues are displayed in the middle of the wearer’s field of vision.
