CES 2013: Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses

1:39 /

Bridget Carey tries the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, a wearable wireless headpiece with an HD camera and a floating eyepiece display.

Hi. I'm Bridget Carey with CNET here at CES 2013 with a first look at something you've probably never seen before. It's Vuzix Smart Glasses M100. This is a wireless smartphone display. What I mean by that is you know how a Bluetooth ear piece works, where you get an alert when you get a call, imagine getting an image pop up too. You simply put it on and there's a couple of different ways you could wear it. Right now, this is one of the working prototypes. And in here, is this tiny screen, it's the equivalent of holding your smartphone screen about, you know, arms length ahead of you and-- oh let me get my hair out the way. I'll be able to-- right now, I'm watching a movie, The Incredibles but I can also look at you at the same time. This display is actually a mini computer. It's running Android and you can actually load apps on here that communicate with your Android smartphone or your tablet. The speaker, it's on your ear right here, you can put a memory card in here too to store your files or movies or apps. And the control buttons are right on top. You can also use a tablet as your manager, as your controller aside from just doing it right from here. There's a 10 ADP camera in the front, so, you could even document your life as you see it with video or photos. Right now, Vuzix is talking with app developers to find other cool uses for something like this. When it comes out for consumers, it'll probably be around mid summer, and it'll cost somewhere under $500. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey. Thanks for watching.
