AR glasses enter metrology field

Vuzix has announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with AccuWeather to bring compelling and dynamic interactive AR-based weather experiences to Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses users.

Now, for the first-time, individuals will be able to interact and view localised weather content and weather forecasts through Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses. Users now will have the added convenience of leaving their phones in their pockets while wearing the Vuzix Blade to stay informed and updated regarding the weather without missing a beat.

Just as users of smart phones see routine weather forecasts on their mobile screens, wearers of the glasses will see a comprehensive weather forecast as a visual overlay that pops into their field of vision. For example, imagine getting ready for a day of air travel. You put on your Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and check the current forecast of your departure city to see if weather might delay your flight. After landing in your destination, you see the current weather conditions as well as what the upcoming forecast is to help get the most from your trip.
