Due to arrive in early summer, the smartglasses are the first member of the company’s Visualize Framework, and their goal is to serve as a software development platform for XR visualization.
As many other recently introduced XR and VR products, the Visualize Design v1 smartglasses are based on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon XR2 Platform, which unites 5G and AI to enable unrivaled extended reality experiences. Virtual information is superimposed onto the wearer’s field of view using DigiLens’ Crystal50 waveguides, which deliver a waveguide efficiency of over 325 nits/lumen with 80 percent transparency.
“Design v1 is brighter, lighter, and more capable than any other waveguide-based XR device on the market,” says Chris Pickett, CEO of DigiLens. “Our strategy is to empower the forward-leaning XR companies in the ecosystem to capitalize on the strengths of an emerging horizontal market.”
The Visualize Design v1 is equipped with two cameras for 6DoF tracking, multiple microphones for noise cancellation and user input, a high-resolution RGB camera for capturing images of the real-world, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and stereo speakers for spatial audio.
“Design v1 promises to be an excellent platform to offer our clients cost-effective head-worn devices with greater comfort and more processing power, ideally adapted to their use case,” adds Christian Guillemot, CEO of AMA. “We are looking forward to start leveraging the benefits of Design v1 for our XpertEye remote assistance solution and continue to create value and amazing experiences for our customers.”
DigiLens is already shipping the smartglasses to some of its partners. A wider rollout is planned to take place at the end of this June.
