Vuzix Corporation, a prominent provider of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology, has unveiled an expansion to its Ultralite OEM Platform with the introduction of the Ultralite S AR smart glasses.
Specifically designed for sports and fitness enthusiasts, the Ultralite S has earned recognition as a CES 2024 Innovation Awards winner in both the Wearable Technologies and Sports & Fitness categories. This marks the 20th consecutive year that Vuzix has received an award at CES, highlighting the company’s enduring commitment to innovation in the AR industry.
The Ultralite S AR smart glasses, built upon the Ultralite OEM Platform, offer a combination of style and functionality, targeting sports and fitness users while appealing to a broader customer base with its sleek design. These glasses provide hands-free, wireless connectivity to information from the wearer’s smartphone or smartwatch, delivering it directly into their line of sight upon request.
Equipped with advanced waveguide optics and micro-LED displays, the Ultralite S creates a clear, see-through image displaying directions, messages, health and fitness data, and workplace information. The device incorporates Vuzix Incognito technology, addressing issues like eye glow or forward light commonly found in other waveguide-based solutions.
Users can stay connected on the go, receive visual responses to AI bot inquiries, and remain aware of their surroundings, thanks to the heads-up display. The Ultralite OEM Platform is customizable, allowing various styles, colors, and technology configurations to cater to individual lifestyles.
Paul Travers, the President and CEO at Vuzix, expressed that the Ultralite S exemplifies the attractive and functional possibilities achievable with the Ultralite OEM Platform. He affirmed the company’s commitment to expanding the design and performance of smart glasses products based on this platform through collaboration with potential end customers on a white-label basis.
For those interested in experiencing use case-based demonstrations, Vuzix invites attendees to visit Booth #16991 at CES 2024, the world’s premier technology event scheduled for January 9-12 in Las Vegas, NV.
