Smart Glasses

What are Smart Glasses devices?

Smart glasses are mini computers shaped like eyeglasses. Being actual eyeglasses in most cases, they are easily wearable, and allow the wearer to receive information directly on the lenses, leaving the hands completely free.

These electronic devices allow you to live your experiences in Augmented Reality.

The superimposition of information on a visual field is obtained through an optical display mounted on the head (OHMD) or built-in wireless glasses with transparent heads-up display (HUD) or Augmented Reality (AR) superposition.

These systems have the ability to transmit projected digital images as well as allowing the user to see through it or see better with it.

While the first models were able to perform basic tasks, such as serving as a front-end display for a remote system, as in the case of smart glasses using mobile or Wi-Fi technology, the latest generation of smart glasses are wearable computers that can run independent apps.

Smart Glasses Find out the features

Some models have a remote control or a touchpad, others are so innovative that they are activated and work through voice commands.

Like most computers, smart glasses can collect information from internal and external sensors and you can retrieve data from other devices or computers.

These mini computers can support wireless technologies like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.

A limited number of models use a mobile operating system and act as portable media players to send audio and video files to the user via a Bluetooth or WiFi headset.

Some smartglass models can also detect location and activities.

Smart glasses may also have features you can normally find on a smartphone.

Some have activity tracker features (also known as a “fitness tracker”) as seen in some GPS watches.

How can you choose the best Smart Glasses
for your company?

5 tips from Brochesia to choose the smart glasses that are best suited to you

#1 Binocular or monocular Smart Glasses?

What are the advantages of monocular devices?

Some monocular smart glasses models are: Realwear (HMT-1, HMTZ-1) and Vuzix (M300, M300XL, M400, Blade)

The monocular smart glasses have a single display. These mini computers are very comfortable for those who wear eyeglasses or work glasses. Usually they have a more advanced operating system, in fact the latest generations of smart glasses adopt this design. Having a single screen for one eye, they are not invasive and allow you to continue working without distractions.

What are the advantages of binocular devices?

Some binocular smart glasses models are: Epson Moverio (BT-350, BT-300, BT-35E, BT-2000, BT-2200) and ODG.

The main feature of these devices is that they are shaped like eyeglasses, they have a more elegant design and are usually lighter and more practical to use, so they are ideal if you need a wide field of view or want a 3D experience.

#2 How much do Smart Glasses weigh?

The weight of the smart glasses changes according to the manufacturer and the model, for example the weight of the Epson Moverio varies between 69 gr and 290 gr, the weight of the Vuzix between 60 gr and 140 gr and finally the Realwear between 380 gr and the 430 gr.

These work tools are mini computers, they are wearable devices that are placed on the head, which is why they must be comfortable for the wearer.

From this ranking, you can see that the lightest are the Epson BT-300, the BT-350, the BT-35E.

These devices are the most elegant glasses and suitable for less demanding work environments. Another very interesting device is the latest Vuzix model, the M400, which came on the market only in September 2019, and guarantees excellent performance at just 68 gr.

Among the less light models that have been designed to be used with the protective helmet, we can find the Epson BT-2000 and BT-2200 that weight about 290 grams, and finally the Realwear HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 with their respective weight of 380 gr and 430 gr, real “wearable” computers, perfect for more difficult environments where it is important to be resistant and ready for any context.

#3 Choose the smart glasses that is best suited for your sector

Each smart glasses model has different characteristics, regarding both the design and the technical level.

For example, smart glasses with a light structure and excellent audio and video quality are suitable for the medical sector, museum visits, security sector and inspection activities.

For example Epson BT-350 and Vuzix M400.

Other devices are used for most of the working day and it is necessary that they are comfortable and that they adapt to other accessories that the worker uses, such as protective glasses or work helmets; some smart glasses models are designed to meet these needs. Some of these devices have protection certificates compliance with the laws of many States, and can be used in difficult environments. For example the Epson BT-2200 and the Realwear HMT-1.

#4 Choose the best Video Glasses

Smart Glasses are designed to be easily worn and give the opportunity to work with free hands.

One of the main features is the Audio and Video recording, that gives you the chance to share the screen of the operator in the field with users from remote.

These devices are designed to transmit and save high quality pictures and videos.

The most powerful devices can grant you a unique Augmented Reality experience

Brochesia offers a great variety of Smart Glasses models suitable for every sector.

Every device has a high definition image quality: Realwear with 16 Megapixels, Vuzix M400 with 12,8 Megapixels and Epson Moverio with 5 Megapixels.

#5 Controller, Touchpad or voice commands

The smart glasses controls can change depending on the model.

All the Epson Moverio have a controller (some are equipped with a touchpad too), the hands are not completely free but the glasses are lighter and less heavy on the head.

Most of the Vuzix instead have a touchpad directly on the frame of the glasses; this way you can perform every action by touching the main unit of the device.

Brochesia solutions completely adapt to Realwear devices, a perfect union of software and hardware. Every interaction takes place through voice commands.

How do they work? You just have to speak the command word.

We are in an international market, so we adjusted to it. Our solutions are designed to be used globally: that’s why we support multiple languages.

We give you the opportunity to perform any task in any language, with free hands.

Realwear devices can be hard to use in noisy environments.
