Vuzix Smart Glasses Beats Google Glass to Market

Source: VentureBeat, Jan 2013

The company announced its Smart Glasses M100 in November, but first demonstrated the glasses to visitors at last week’s CES show in Las Vegas. The glasses are still in development, but the company says they’ll be ready to go this summer, and will be priced “under $500.” If the company meets that deadline, it will beat Google, a formidable competitor, to market. Google is pushing its Google Glass project hard. More on that below.

Early reviews of the Vuzix are positive. The Vuzix lens, at 800 x 480 pixels, provides a “bright, clear image that was easy to focus on even though it was visible only to my right eye…it appeared about as big as the display of a four-inch phone screen held at arm’s length,” said Tom Simonite in a hands-on review for Technology Review.
