December 17, 2020 – NuEyes, an augmented reality (AR) smart glass technology company specializing in the field of low-vision technology, has recently announced its next generation AR smart glasses solution, the Pro 3.
According to the company, this new line of AR Smart Glasses will not only address low vision and medical uses, but it also the needs for training and learning, as well as enterprise and government needs. The lightweight binocular smart glasses will enable companies to empower their workforces with guided workflows, remote assistance, knowledge transfer, step-by-step training, 3D data visualization and maintenance, repair and operations information.
“This is an exciting pivot for NuEyes. Over the past four years, we have been approached by a multitude of medical, government, and enterprise customers asking for a smart glass solution to meet their needs. With our new multiyear exclusive manufacturing relationship with PFC, we now can deliver on those needs with the Pro 3 product line,” said Mark Greget, CEO and Founder of NuEyes Technologies, Inc.
The NuEyes Pro 3 Product Line delivers a 4K display and an ultra-wide 51-degree field of view (FoV). The tethered solution weighs 88g and comes in three versions.
- Pro 3 device tethered to a proprietary controller with dual 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) cameras and a forward-facing 20MP RGB Camera. The SDK includes: SLAM, object, speech, and gesture recognition, as well as plane detection;
- Pro 3-C that boasts a 5MP RGB camera with a USB type C plug that connects to any smart device that renders video via a display port. The Pro 3-C connects and displays images in 2D and 3D on most Android phones and tablets, iPads, MacBook’s, and Microsoft’s Surface Book 2;
- The third version of the Pro 3 is geared around Thermal Imaging for enterprise needs.
NuEyes stated that its Pro 3 products will be available for order beginning on December 18, 2020, and will ship starting in late January 2021.
NuEyes claims that its Pro 3 product line “will leapfrog the technology currently available”. With the exception of the thermal imaging functionality, which is less commonplace on other AR glasses available today, (but options for this on other devices do still exist nonetheless), it is not clear exactly what the company means by this, as many of the features mentioned above are widely available on other devices. It will be interesting to see how NuEyes slots into the existing and ever-growing AR smart glasses market.
NuEyes, a veteran-owned company, was launched to assist those with eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinitis pigmentosa. According to the company, over the past four years it has seen extensive sales growth and has obtained federal, state and insurance reimbursement for its devices.
