A new prototype for its extended reality glasses is set to be unveiled by DigiLens. The upgraded version of the product will pack a host of augmented reality features, such as overlaying digital images on what you see. With this release, software developers can begin developing applications for the final product.
Chris Pickett, the CEO for DigiLens, remarked that the Design v1 smart glasses are more advanced than models the Sunnyvale, California-based company showcased in 2019. The new prototype is based on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 platform and the DigiLens Crystal50 waveguide to display imagery on the glasses.
The prototype will also be a target hardware platform for content developers, manufacturers, and internet of things (IoT) companies to begin working on their XR applications before the full-fledged launch.
“We believe it’s the most advanced set of XR glasses in the world, with the most efficient 50-degree waveguides in the world,” Pickett said. “We built that purposely so that our partners can iterate to get to exactly the platform that they want to create their software.”
Pickett also added that several potential customers had begun using the Design v1 smart glasses to blueprint for their products. In addition, the prototype has received a considerable amount of orders from the developers so far.
“It’s really a who’s who of the augmented reality industry in the ecosystem,” added Pickett. “Our partners can iterate on the hardware until they get to a point where they’re happy with it. And then we can solidify it into a white label product.”
