November 7, 2023 – Vuzix Corporation, a provider of good glasses and augmented actuality (AR) know-how and merchandise, has this week introduced what it states is a breakthrough in optical waveguide design and efficiency for see-through AR good glasses.

Vuzix’ new ‘INCOGNITO’ know-how “nearly eliminates” the ahead eye glow sometimes related to waveguide-based good glasses. In response to the corporate, it’s the first waveguide-based know-how on this planet to attain this degree of efficiency.

With the corporate’s new technological development, mild leakage from the entrance surfaces of AR good glasses that’s sometimes witnessed with many present trade options, in addition to potential haze and digital photos, nearly disappear with Vuzix’ development.

Primarily based on the Vuzix mental property, which now exceeds 325 patents and patents pending targeted on shows and waveguides, Vuzix famous that its INCOGNITO know-how manages inside mild reflection and thus minimizes and manages ahead mild leakage inside a waveguide.

Vuzix added that its resolution additionally helps to boost low mild optical efficiency, and the brand new know-how advances Vuzix’ ahead mild ratio of 1:8 (the next ahead mild ratio signifies that extra of the sunshine generated by the show reaches the consumer’s eyes, which may result in a brighter, clearer picture and a extra immersive AR expertise). Consequently, Vuzix acknowledged that its INCOGNITO know-how helps to enhance the distinction of digital photos in AR glasses and interplay with the exterior surroundings.

“Vuzix INCOGNITO know-how makes the tech in a pair of AR good glasses, or every other waveguide-based head-mounted show, nearly disappear,” mentioned Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “Person privateness is enormously elevated as this know-how virtually eliminates the flexibility for every other observer to know that you simply’re viewing displayed content material in your machine. Whereas it is a extremely fascinating characteristic for client use, it represents crucial performance for sure navy functions, the place ahead mild in protection conditions can rapidly compromise the security of floor troops and navy personnel.”

Extra importantly, Vuzix highlighted that these refinements have been achieved with no will increase in its manufacturing value per waveguide. As famous by the corporate’s CEO, the brand new waveguide performance will likely be focused for introduction into sure protection, industrial, enterprise and finally broader client functions.

Travers added, “We look ahead to incorporating Vuzix INCOGNITO know-how into each our normal and customised waveguide options as we concurrently start to ramp waveguide manufacturing at our new high-volume, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility within the Rochester NY space.”
