We all know that augmented reality headsets currently available on the market surely cost us as good car. These devices are out of reach of the majority of consumers around the world, but now the Vuzix Star 1200 is about to change this. Vuzix, makers of military and consumer grade Augmented Reality eyewear, announced their newest line of AR glasses.
They have been specifically designed to enable users to view the real world scene while also viewing relevant computer generated information, graphics and alerts and are equipped with 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) motion tracking sensors and a built in camera for tracking and recognising the real world. You can adjust the fit of the glasses as per your requirement, with features like Accutilt display angle adjustment, an adjustable nose bridge and comes with a tether strap for secure fit. Moreover, you can also pick from three removable noise-isolating earphone styles that fit you right.
TheVuzix STAR 1200 first see-through AR-enabled Video Eyewear technology provides a native 16:9 format that offers full color WVGA (852 x 480) support and provides an experience similar to a 60-inch flat panel television viewed from 10-feet.
At a price tag of $5,000 many would argue that the new Vuzix Star 1200 is a lot of money to pay for a pair of glasstttes which allows a person to see things that are not really there. The price, however, is certainly miles cheaper that the sort of military-grade options currently available on the market. The headset is available for pre-order now and will start shipping in August, so you can finally get down to hunting and destroying all of the people who make fun of you for wearing funny looking glasses.
