Vuzix Corp VUZI, a supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, unveiled Blade 2 smart glasses.

What Happened? The Blade 2 smart glasses is an AR workforce solution inspired by the popular Blade form factor that delivers a host of advanced features and high performance specifically designed to meet the needs of connected workers. 

Vuzix Blade 2 smart glasses list for $1,299.99 and will be available on the Company's website in September. 

Why Does It Matter? Vuzix Blade 2 smart glasses, configured exclusively for industry use, pack a power-efficient high, performance Qualcomm processor that now runs Android 11 in support of a large variety of enterprise-focused apps.

The glasses offer simple integration with MDMs along with a full 40GB of integrated storage and enhanced security. 

Expanded connectivity options through WiFi and Bluetooth provide support for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bandwidths, enabling improved network access.

See-through waveguide optics provide a private, ultrabright display that delivers crisp, 24-bit full-color images regardless of whether workers use them indoors or in sunlight.

Vuzix Blade 2's lightweight form factor still provides all-day comfort and protection, keeping front-line workers collaborating safely with noise canceling microphones, integrated speakers, and ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses certification. 

Prescription inserts for vision correction are also available.

They deliver the versatility that's critical in diverse work environments, including head tracking, a touchpad, and voice commands, so workers can easily access see-what-I-see virtual assist and collaboration software, real-time data, work instructions, mixed reality, HD photography, and video streaming."
