ROCHESTER, N.Y. and MUNICH, Oct.8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix Corporation (OTC:QB: VUZI), a leading supplier of Video Eyewear and Smart Glasses products in the consumer, commercial and entertainment markets, announced today that it will have a large presence with its M100 smart glasses at this week's InsideAR event in Munich, Germany on October 10th – 11th. Further enhancing its partnership with Metaio, Vuzix has signed up as a silver sponsor and will take to the stage to discuss wearable technology and smart glasses after the initial opening address by Metaio.
With the morning of the first day being titled 'The Wearable Computing Forecast', it hones in on smart glasses discussions, developments in smart glasses AR applications and uses within a variety of markets. Vuzix session will focus on how Vuzix' M100 works within the enterprise sector – which will be further enhanced later in the day when SAP, the market leader in enterprise application software, and SITA, the world's leading specialist in air transport and communications IT, show use cases for apps running on the M100 within specific markets.
"We're pleased to be a major part of such an important AR event," stated CEO Paul Travers, "We're excited to showcase the use of the M100 within the wearable technology and AR markets, but we're also looking forward to meeting with other peers, who have their eyes on the goal of bringing innovative AR Technology to the Enterprise & Prosumer markets."
The M100 smart glasses and selected AR apps will be available throughout the two days for delegates to try at their leisure. However, be warned, it recently caused a stir when shown at the CEATEC event in Japan. There it was running a facial recognition and translation app from NTT Docomo and was so popular delegates often queued at the show table for well over an hour!
