The story about Vuzix’s new AR/holographic enabled concept glasses broke last week, but I had a chance to catch up with Clark Dever from Vuzix (with my rogue TechCrunch ghetto cam) for a brief video explanation and demo of the technology.
The short of it is that it involves some highfalutin’ technolgy to get the displays to accurately display into the lens material. Their displays were quite… → Read More
The week of May 16th, Vuzix — makers of military and consumer grade Augmented Reality eyewear — announced their newest line of AR glasses as the STAR 1200. As their press release states, STAR stands for See-Through-Augmented-Reality and describes the killer feature of this new concept — transparent displays. Rather than viewing small, mounted video screens in the eyewear that show you both… → Read More

By “all” I mean one Vuzix Wrap310 and by “give” I mean “give away in a contest.” What is a Wrap 310? It’s a 16:9 widescreen set of high resolution glasses that you can connect right to your iPhone or iPod touch, allowing you to look totally like Geordi LaForge on the plane. How do you win? → Read More
A new headset from Vuzix brings augmented reality gaming. What does that mean? This is basically a 3D hud with a camera. It can directly interact with objects you’re looking at – say a block can have its own meta-information that appears whenever you look at it. I’m going to get the boys to look into this one because it sounds quite cool. Release post jump. → Read More
We’ve known the Vuzix AV310 has been coming for a while now, but the wait is over. The iWear AV310 featuring a full 16:9 widescreen display is now shipping for $249.95, as expected.
I love the concept and features, but looking like Cyclops is not really my style. Maybe you feel differently. → Read More
Vuzix will be showing off some updated VR glasses at CES: the Wrap 920AV. The glasses are actually starting to look more and more like semi-normal frames that you might actually be able to wear on a plane, train, or bus without drawing too much attention. → Read More
I’ve always wanted to try one of these. The new models are priced between the expensive 920′s and the cheap 230. I don’t really see the difference in these models. Maybe they for different purpose. The widescreen model features a 52″ screen and real cinema experience while the 320XL gives you a 44″ screen and is cheaper. Click here for more. → Read More
And now to talk about video glasses that push everything out in glorious 16:9. The AV310 from Vuzix will cost $249.95 (not bad, not bad), replicate a 52-inch screen as viewed from nine feet, feature independent adjustment for each of your eyeballs, and work for up to five hours on a single AA battery. The glasses hook up to just about anything with video output. All iPod models are also supported. → Read More

Congratulations on a good idea, Vuzix. The new iWear AV920-C video glasses support up to four players and will show each player his or her respective corner of the multi-player screen. Great for games like…um…Doom, as seen in the Vuzix promotional photo on the left. The glasses can connect to any NTSC or PAL video input and up to four sets can be daisy-chained together for a… → Read More
This was another product I was skeptical about. VR goggles? Do they ship with a copy of Johnny Mnemonic? But I put them on and lo and behold: the image was pretty good, it tracked my head movements so I could look around the cockpit, and they were even lightweight and had different nose-touch-piece-things for people of different nasal persuasions. One kind was meant to be used as a single-TV… → Read More
