This is interesting to me for a number of reasons. One of their favorites. Still focused on useful things (not a gaming device) Still a poor field of view. 

Most of the efforts that companies like this are making are dedicated to interface, software, sensors, etc. They'll be able to add a much better display later.

Wearable --More at the source -- favorites from the wearable tech show)


We've talked about Vuzix before, but the company was at WTS to show off its latest model, the M300. The new glasses are built to be open to more industrial, medical, retail and business uses, also offering a more ergonomic design. Even if they're only targeting enterprise for now, we think Vuzix is offering a lot of promise for this niche category right now. It's not a surprise that Vuzix reminds us so much of Google Glass, and in fact the company revealed Google approached it during the early stages of Google Glass to propose a partnership - but it didn't happen in the end.

Vuzix tells us it's sold 10,000 units so far, with its biggest use case currently engineers. It's interesting to see how Vuzix has endured - 15 years in the business - where other similar products have failed, and although it's still targeting the workplace, there's no doubt more consumer-facing products can learn a thing or two from Vuzix.

Here's where Microvision can shine -- the NOMAD far exceeds this field of view. (If this description is correct, it seems to me that lot of people won't be able to make use of it for text in any practical way.) List of solutions here
