“…the world’s smallest, lightest augmented reality…”
Until Google Glass come along MicroOptical’s viewers were the world’s smallest, lightest augmented reality heads-up displays available. MicroOptical’s patented optical system gave the user the impression of a free-floating monitor. This unique optical system was what allowed the user to maintain a natural vision and awareness of the environment while still working on the screen. It was lightweight, comfortable, ergonomic and a true plug and play device that ould be attached to almost any pair of eyeglasses.
As with the DigiLens DL40 it was just too expensive and the technology still is. We all know that the future will be full of wearable technology, but that time isn’t now and it wasn’t back when the MicroOptical MV-1 was released.
