The headset includes a camera capable of recording in 4K resolution, a flashlight, full colour OLED display, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth, Touchpad, voice navigation and has 64GB of storage. Three noise cancellation microphones and Qualcomm truevoice enables hands-free voice commands in several environments. There is also an app available for Android and iOS which allows for monitoring of the smart glasses, access to apps, and a keyboard.
Another product from Vuzix is its Blade smart glasses which deliver a hands-free connection to the digital world by giving access to location-aware information, data collection and more. The Vuzix Blade glasses include an 8-megapixel camera and voice control. They are also certified to CE EN166, the European certification for personal eye protection. Furthermore, the glasses have noise cancelling microphones, full colour see-through displays, WiFi, UV protection lenses, and dual haptic feedback. The see-through Waveguide optics merge digital instructions onto real-world tasks, removing distractions and reducing error rates.
Vuzix recently partnered with Librestream to develop an integrated hands-free thermal imaging smart glasses solution. The combination of the M400 headset with Librestream’s Onsight platform offers a real-time thermal video feed, allowing workers to share thermal images with remote experts.
