History Vuzix Blade

After winning the 2019 Innovation Award at CES, all eyes are on the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses. Or rather; the eyes look through the lenses of these AR glasses that project a small screen for the right eye. The frame is just a bit too big to pass for normal sunglasses, but it looks a lot “friendlier” than the Vuzix Augmented Reality glasses for industrial use. The price tag is also friendly, on the other hand, these glasses are not expandable with peripheral accessories.

About Vuzix
In 1995 Forte Technologies released the Forte VFX1, the first Virtual Reality headset for consumers. Two years later, the strategy was changed and Vuzix was founded. Since then, the company has been developing AR solutions for industrial purposes, the military and with the new Blade now also for consumers. This product has some similarities with the M100, M300 and m300 XL series, the main difference being the focus on everyday use.

What makes the Vuzix Blade special?
Attractive design: Although the Blade will not yet win awards for eyeglass design, these AR glasses are definitely an advance on the traditional Augmented Reality glasses. The sleek exterior also feels more comfortable than smart glasses with often small parts that protrude.
Stay informed: By communicating with the smartphone, notifications appear before your eyes. Even images and video are displayed in color. This way you can receive messages without taking the smartphone out of your pocket.
Take photos and record video: With the 8MP camera, you can easily take photos and record video. A subtle red light illuminates to indicate that video is being recorded.
App for Android and iOS: Although the AR glasses are based on Android, you can use most functions with both an Android and an Apple device. You do not always have to scroll through long menus on the glasses because you can use your own mobile phone for advanced applications.
Voice assistant: Amazon Alexa is the standard voice assistant on the Vuzix Blade, but Google Assistant also works with these glasses. With the built-in microphone you can give hands-free voice commands, the answer is shown on the display in front of your eyes.
Prescription lenses: The lenses are replaceable, so it is possible to order prescription lenses. This service is not currently offered by Vuzix, but it is possible through an external provider.
Turn-by-turn navigation: When paired with an Android smartphone, you can use turn-by-turn navigation via Google Maps or Here We Go. That way you can keep your eyes on the road.

Limitations to take into account
Unlike the 300 XL, you cannot expand the Blade with the standard accessories of the 300 series. The camera also has a somewhat lower resolution, and does not match the photos that you can take with a modern smartphone. Since the screen is limited to the right eye, it is not possible to detect depth. The pseudo-3D image is therefore perceived as flat. The design is a big improvement on the Google Glass from 2015, but does not match the elegant Focals Smart Glasses from North. But those Focal glasses get warm pretty quickly and don’t have a built-in camera.

AR for business use
While the Vuzix Blade may appear to be a consumer product at first glance, that’s not entirely true. It is a wearable for on-site use, which makes it extremely useful, for example, for a supervisor who visits construction sites. The route planner will also prove very practical for representatives who need a hands-free navigation system. Recording calls is possible, which increases safety on the road. You do need earplugs or a headset, there are no speakers in the frame. That you can also use Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant means that you continuously have a virtual assistant at your disposal. In short; As Augmented Reality glasses for business use, the Vuzix Blade is not at all wrong. But you won’t be able to do much with it on the assembly line or in the warehouse.

Conclusion
The Vuzix Blade lives up to the promise of the earlier Google Glass in many ways. The design is a lot more attractive, the wearer can use a striking number of interactive functions via these smart glasses. In combination with a smartphone you can achieve quite a lot hands-free, the touch-sensitive touchpad offers you even more possibilities. The number of apps will be expanded considerably, according to the manufacturer, of course it is also possible to delay your own apps

Can you get extra memory?
