Top Line: ThirdEye, a leader in augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) enterprise solutions, announces a new partnership with NuEyes, a pioneer in the field of low-vision technology. With this partnership, NuEyes is introducing the Pro 2, which uses ThirdEye’s lightweight X2 MR Glasses to assist people with vision loss.
Close Up: By running NuEyes’ patented software on the X2 MR Glasses, people with visual impairments that cannot be cured by surgery or use conventional glasses, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinitis pigmentosa, can now use the latest in augmented reality smart glasses technology to improve their daily lives. The X2 MR Glasses combined with NuEyes’ software provides a simple user experience with built-in voice controls being a central part of the interface. Wearers can use voice commands to magnify objects near and far, change contrast, and have optical character recognition.
“We’re excited to be partnering with NuEyes to help users read, watch television and movies, see faces, and, ultimately, improve their quality of life,” said Nick Cherukuri, founder and CEO of ThirdEye. “By combining our product with NuEyes’ patented software, the Pro 2 will improve day-to-day functions for thousands and help many regain their independence.”
Mark Greget, founder and CEO of NuEyes, commented, “Augmented reality smart glass technology has come a long way in the past few years, and Nick and his team have done an outstanding job encompassing those innovations in the X2 MR Glasses. With this partnership, we are excited to once again make a lasting and positive change in the world for those that suffer from vision loss.”
Vital Stats: ThirdEye’s X2 MR Glasses are lightweight and are suited for extensive wear both indoors and outdoors. The glasses have a 42-degree field of view, run on Android 9.0, are powered by a Snapdragon xR1 Qualcomm processor chip, and have an equivalent to a 90” High Definition Screen at just 10 feet away. NuEyes’ software offers variable magnification, contrast overlays, optical character recognition/text-to-speech and brightness settings, which can be accessed via buttons or voice command for flexibility and convenience.
