Lumus DK40 Smartglasses

Lumus DK40 Smartglasses (2013)

Lumus DK40 Smartglasses

Description: Lumus is a military contractor that has decided to enter the smart glasses race by partnering up with Huawei to bring you the Lumus DK40 Smartglasses. Running much the same hardware as its F16 fighter jet HUD it makes use of an optical engine module consisting of a light-guide Optical Element (LOE) and a Micro-display Pod. The philosophy behind this technology is the same as the one in the HUD displays of the F-16 fighters, which means that the smart-glasses won’t cause any strain to the user’s eyes.

The DK-40 development kit has a 720p display up front, yet Huawei has seemingly put its faith into a 640 x 480-pixel one. The Huawei smart glasses will also sport a 5MP camera on the temple and will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The monocular system consists of a small form-factor VGA resolution optical engine providing a 25° FoV, onboard OMAP processor and an embedded 9DoF motion sensor.

Lumus DK40 Smartglasses

HEADSET Review: Much like the Lumus DK32 Smartglasses, these set of smart AR glasses seems more of a waypoint to current versions of the same device rather than a serious release. The good news for those that own it is that Lumus Vision is still going and could one day turn all their AR glasses into collectable items.
