Vuzix’s new Augmented Reality Glasses

Another CES announcement, this time fro Vuzix, announces a new Stereo Augmented Reality headset that fits into a slim sunglasses form factor.

The stereo camera pair delivers a single 1504 x 480 side-by-side image that can be viewed in 3D stereoscopic video, while the video eyewear provides an unprecedented 67-inch display as seen from 10 feet. The Wrap 920AR also includes a 6 Degree-of-Freedom Tracker, which allows for absolute accuracy of roll pitch and yaw and also X, Y and Z positioning in 3D space. Selected as a 2010 CES Innovations Award winner and a semifinalist for the “Last Gadget Standing” competition, the Wrap 920AR will be the highlight of Vuzix’ display at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show.

So, it’s a bit of an odd offering, as it records stereo imagery via the cameras and display it right back to you, as tho it’s not even there.  Hopefully, some interesting applications will come out utilizing the integrated tracking.
