Vuzix Receives Eight CES 2016 Innovation Awards
Vuzix announced in a press release that the Consumer Technology Association, the producer of CES 2016, has awarded the company eight CES Innovation Awards. Several are for devices aimed at consumers, such as video eyewear and VR glasses.
Other new models will be well suited for enterprise use cases.
The Vuzix Vidwear B3000 and Vuzix Vidwear M3000 Smart Glasses were each honored with dual CES Innovation Awards for innovative design and engineering. Unfortunately, the company has not published product information about these new models on its web site. The announcement only describes the Vuzix Vidwear B3000 as one of the world’s first sunglasses with integrated video and AR overlays.
According to the same announcement, Vuzix M3000 Smart Glasses will leverage the company’s waveguide-based wearable eyewear for enterprise. Most likely, they will be monocular and have significantly improved display resolution, ergonomics, computing power, and sensor technologies. The announcement suggests that the see-through waveguide-based display engine in the M3000 will be optimized to deliver network-based content for Augmented Reality experiences in the workplace.
