April 6, 2023 – NuEyes, a provider of augmented reality (AR) smart glass technology, has this week announced ‘NuLoupes,’ the company’s next generation of smart glasses that are due out later this year.
Designed to revolutionize the surgical market and the market for dental loupes (tool used by dentists and dental hygienists to enhance their ability to visualize what cannot be seen by the naked eye), NuLoupes will bring surgical and dental loupes into the 21st century with AR technology and an ecosystem for medical professionals. Moving from fixed magnification to NuLoupes’ high-resolution variable digital magnification will provide surgeons and dentists with versatility and viewing area, according to NuEyes.
Using the company’s proprietary patent-pending camera system, NuLoupes will provide live 3D stereoscopic imaging with near-zero latency. NuEyes stated that the camera system delivers sub-millimeter accurate depth perception in order to allow physicians to accurately understand the environment they are looking at. The technology is key to providing natural viewing with an enhanced magnification of detailed work in front of users, according to NuEyes.
Along with stereopsis imaging, NuLoupes will provide access to a limitless ecosystem of AR applications and content specifically designed to help clinicians. Using high-resolution displays, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), NuLoupes will provide access to dictation/operative notes, surgical and dental navigation, object recognition, remote health, and 3D stereoscopic live streaming, as well as in-view patient data and imaging.
“It’s exciting to see a product that we have been working on for years finally come to market. I am extremely appreciative of all the engineers and doctors that made NuLoupes a reality,” said Mark Greget, founder and CEO of NuEyes. “The complexities of a 3D camera system that outperforms the human eye, fit into a small and ergonomic pair of AR smart glasses, will be another huge step forward for not only the medical industry but for how augmented reality is delivered.”
NuEyes stated that it has worked with surgeons and dentists to design and develop NuLoupes, with their input helping to shape the features, function, and ergonomic design of the smart glasses, from software needed for surgery to the pivoting camera system to help reduce fatigue.
“In my opinion, NuLoupes has the potential to be as big, if not a bigger change to the surgical experience than the robot,” said Dr. Kaplan, MD, FACS Vascular Surgeon.
“NuLoupes will be like a supercomputer and 3D camera system on your head. It’s groundbreaking for surgery, a true game changer in the loupe market,” said Dr. Fanous, MD, FAANS Board Certified Neurosurgeon.
