Vuzix AV310 Widescreen Video Eyewear




Augmented reality is not a new concept, it has actually has been around for many years in one form or another. To the best of my knowledge it all started with the stereo spectroscope. This allowed people to view flat 2-demensional images with a semblance of depth and made the pictures more vivid and life like (well, as vivid and life like as a black and white photo can be).


Today augmented reality comes in many, many forms, but they're still not much more than methods for tricking the eyes. One of the most popular has been the introduction of AR (Augmented Reality) eyewear for gaming. These follow normal lines and allow for either enhanced viewing, 3D viewing or some combination of the two.


Vuzix is a company that has put a lot of time and research into this technology for the military and for the consumer. We have had the chance to play around with a pair of their AV310 iWear for about 30 days so that we can tell you not only how they work, but if they are really worth it. Read on to find out!
