Private. Informed. Connected.
Mobile devices and wireless networks have evolved to offer consumers visually rich content, multimedia applications, and responsive high speed data networks. However, the value consumers receive from their mobile devices is still limited by the tiny viewing experience provided by their LCD screens. Microvision and its business partners are working to change this by collaborating on the initial development of mobile device eyewear that extends the viewing experience beyond the tiny screen to fashionable see-through, full color eyewear.
IMAGINE THESE NEW VIEWING EXPERIENCES
Giving a speech while information is streamed to your eyeglasses in real time
Presenting to a crowd with your notes secretly stowed away in your eye glasses
Extending your everyday computing environment to include your eyewear display
Walking down the street, seeing your favorite friends show up "on screen" 2 blocks and 1 cafe away
Receiving turn by turn directions as you walk toward your destination
Reviewing messages while on the go
Creating your personal big screen experience from mobile TV and video (occluded or escape mode)
Seeing building schematics and locations of others (especially useful for security or firefighters)
Viewing virtual recipes while cooking without losing your rhythm
