Father of Smart Glasses
Steven Mann is a
and inventor best
known for his work
Various techniques have existed for see through
Some Main Families:-
Curved Mirror :- used by Vuzix, by Olympus, and Laster technologies.
Waveguide or Light guide based :- used by Sony, Epson.
Virtual Retinal Displays :- technology that draws a raster display(like
telivision onto the retina of eye).
Technical Illusions CastAR :- uses a different technique with clear glass. The
Glass has a projector, and image is returned to the eve by a reflective

• By contrast Virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated
• Augmentation is conventionally in real time and in semantic
context with environment elements, such sports scores on TV
during a match.
• With help of AR Technology information of real world becomes
interactive and digitally manipulable.
• It is a device paired to forehead such as a helmet.
• It place images of both the physical world and virtual
objects over the user’s field of view.
• Sensors.(GPS, accelerometer, and solid state compass)
• Input devices.
• Vuzix M300.
• Epson Moverio BT-300.
• Sony SmartEyeGlass.
• Jins Meme.
