Where Do Smart Glasses Fit in the AR Market?

On Spatial Perspectives, host Dan Cui will have a one-on-one dialog with innovators and thought leaders in the growing Spatial Reality, or Spatial Computing, market. Cui will invite guests who can discuss the real world use cases of the technology and how it could benefit mankind while exploring any drawbacks and how they might be mitigated.

 

There have been numerous attempts to make smart eyewear over the past decade or so. Virtual and augmented glasses usually get the attention, but Lucyd is making eyeglasses with sound that allow users to have a hands-free device on their heads.

On this episode of Spatial Perspectives, Host Dan Cui talked with Harrison Gross, CEO, and Founder, Lucyd, a company that builds Bluetooth headphones and microphones into eyeglasses. The duo spoke about Lucyd, VR and audio eyewear, and Harrison’s role in the company.

Gross sent Cui a pair to test out for this video podcast, and Cui noted how cool it is to talk through the eyeglasses while sitting on the video. One thing about the glasses is that there is no need for headphones while wearing the glasses, as they can connect via Bluetooth to any smart device.

Lucyd has been working on smart eyewear since 2017. They have run through numerous beta versions of the glasses to figure out what it takes to bring smart eyewear to the mainstream. One of the challenges they’ve faced is making prescription glasses. Their new products, the Lyte Wayfarer and The Lyte Round came out in January, and Gross believes it’s the first smart eyewear that’s suitable for all-day wear.

“It has a number of advantages over other products in the space,” Gross said. In addition to being able to wear them all day, the technology is advanced enough that a consumer wouldn’t be able to tell they’re smart eyewear. They look like regular glasses.
