These award-winning AR Smart Sunglasses will be showcased at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #13246, from January 5-8, 2017.

The Blade 3000 Smart Sunglasses provide a wearable smart display with a see-through viewing experience utilizing Vuzix’ proprietary waveguide optics and Cobra II display engine. It’s like having your computer or smartphone screen information with you wherever you go. Blade 3000 Sunglasses with vibrant full color monocular display does it all with style and performance, providing immediate heads up access to information that wearers would normally have to view by looking down at their smartphone or smartwatch. Never before has a product been designed where you can see overlaid information, indoors or out, such as patient data, GPS mapping directions, restaurant menus, weather information, alerts and more without picking up a second screen. Truly revolutionary, the Blade 3000 Sunglasses are a perfect companion to a smartphone, allowing users to keep their phone in their pockets for almost everything. Finally fashion meets technology in the wearable display arena.

The Blade 3000 supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for standalone or smartphone connected use; wirelessly displaying virtual information – similar in many ways to a smart watch. You can also view social media messaging, text, maps, notifications, etc., from both Android and iOS smartphones. Designed specifically for the exploding digital information world that wants mobile access – anywhere, anytime and connected to the real world.

Vuzix Blade 3000 Smart Sunglasses include an integrated HD camera, head-motion tracker, touch pad, tactile haptic vibration feedback, built-in noise cancelling mics with speech recognition and of course built-in batteries. The smart sunglasses will run Android on its modern internal processor and is completely wireless.

The Blade 3000 Smart Sunglasses have been honored with four CES Innovation Awards for innovative design and engineering. Blending fashion and technology, Vuzix Blade 3000 will be one of the world’s first smart sunglasses.
