Vuzix introduces new hands free smart glasses in Showstoppers

With smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 getting bigger interfaces, some corporations are going micro.

Vuzix showcased its M100 Smart Glasses, a hands free add on to smartphones that clips on to a headband with a tiny screen and accessibility to the smartphone, at the Showstoppers presentation of the 2013 Mobile World Congress. The M100 connects via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, displayed with Android operating system, and provides the user access to a visual address book, a camera to record video or take photos, or even run various applications, including augmented reality apps.

The eyepiece features a 16:9 widescreen WQVGA screen, allowing the user easy, portable access to their smartphone inches away from their eye. The fact that it can connect via both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi means that it is usable virtually anywhere to connect to your phone, and renders the glasses highly effective.

The Vuzix M100 had a solid showing at the Mobile World Congress, showing that not all companies need to get bigger interfaces with their new smartphones. The M100 provides people desiring a small, portable connection to their smartphone and is great for people on the go. Its development has a future for several great apps, utilizing the camera to take pictures of a bar code, for example, and displaying information about the product.
