ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses, Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce that the Company will be presenting an optics abstract on Vuzix Blade® at the Frontiers in Optics Laser Science (FIO+LS) Technical Conference on September 19, 2018 in Washington, District of Columbia, USA.
The Virtual Reality and Augmented Vision conference theme at Frontiers in Optics Laser Science (FIO+LS) Technical Conference will focus on the VR and Augmented Reality (AR) markets. Within Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Vision, especially AR and MR are poised to create a huge market for enterprise and consumer by 2020, reaching over $100B. However, in order to create mass adoption both for enterprise and consumer, various hardware requirements need to be met, such as wearable, visual comfort, and costs. None of them are currently addressed, most of today's AR and MR headsets being too bulky, too heavy, low FOV, low resolution, low brightness, and have inherent vision limitations such as Vergence Accommodation conflict. Most of these challenges are linked to optics and photonics.
Robert Schultz, Vuzix Corporation Director of Advances Optics will provide an overview of Vuzix Blade, AR smart glasses that fits a need and fulfills a purpose; is so comfortable that the technology disappears and is so intuitive to operate that it doesn't require training. Vuzix Blade is designed to make the complex simple and open the world to new possibilities. Enterprise customers should see immediate returns on their investment and consumers should wonder how they managed to make it this far without this tool. Tools like Vuzix Blade that redefine the way we interact with the world only come about rarely.
