Vuzix previews Wrap 920AV video eyewear

image

Vuzix has provided iLounge with a sneak peak at its upcoming Wrap 920AV portable video eyewear. Able to function both as sunglasses (!) or as a portable video display, the 920AV also promises to combine “virtual reality capabilities” and “augmented reality features,” an apparent reference to support for stereoscopic 3-D effects, and possibly head tracking; we are awaiting clarification on these features. Integrated earphones are included, and the lenses will be able to benefit from individual focal adjustments, and more. The Vuzix Wrap 920AV portable video eyewear will be officially unveiled at CES in January; release and pricing information has yet to be announced.

If thats AR as in “Overlaying virtual objects onto the real world”...video or optical see-though….thats quite a big feature indeed.
Dozens if not hundreds of potential applications.

When you deal with the people at vuzix, they treat you like you are an indentured servant to technology, when it comes to contacting them about repairs (that can happen easily because of their fragile components), you are better of finding a third party as they are only interested in selling whatever surplus supply they have invested.  Also their English is sub-standard.
