Vuzix is demonstrating an early prototype of 3D video glasses with a built in camera linked to software for an augmented reality experience.
Unlike purely video viewing glasses, the new Vuzix model is constructed with see-through displays – along the lines of heads-up displays in aircrafts and cars – so you can see the world through the video. Motion sensors in the glasses allow the projected image to move with head motion for more immersive game play. The camera captures and processes what is being viewed.
In the demo, a handheld piece of paper is seen in the glasses as the base of a 3D architectural visualization. The visualization moves as the paper is moved.
The new model glasses without the camera are going to be on the market in late February. At last year’s CES, Vuzix showed band-styled glasses for 3D viewing with motion sensors, but without the heads-up ability to see the outside world.
