Lumus DK50 Smartglasses

Lumus DK-50 (2016)

Lumus DK50 Smartglasses

Description: Lumus say there DK50 Smartglasses will do the same for AR what Oculus did for VR! It does have to be said that the Lumus DK50 breaks new ground in AR in both design and technology. With very impressive projections and wide FOV it is running stats that put it right up with Microsoft HoloLens! While 40° FOV doesn’t sound like a lot, in the world of VR this is like what the StarVR does for VR! But it is all just marketing hype besides the wide FOV?

If you look back at both the DK32 and the DK 40 you will know that Lumus is very skilled in this form of tech. But whether it is what the buying public will want is another matter. Much like the Oculus Rift there will be a lot of people waiting for the price before falling in love with it.

Lumus DK-50

HEADSET Review: The good news is Lumus Vision are still going and still making AR smart glasses with new models due for release in the next couple of years. But as for the Lumus DK-50 it seems to have fallen into development hell. Apart from a few development headsets going out there really wasn’t much of a release to talk about. Let’s hope the company’s next devices fair a little better.
