Motorcycle AR Display
Motorcycling is known to be dangerous, with motorcyclists being 28 times more likely to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled compared to those in passenger vehicles. However, the Vision 180 motorcycle helmet dashcam kit by CREACT aims to prevent this. This device features real-time navigation, a driving recorder, and a rear camera view, with 120-degree wide-angle lenses and Sony CMOS sensors to help with nighttime lighting and hazy vision. The device can be easily installed in full or 3/4 hood motorcycle helmets and offers built-in WiFi and Bluetooth to connect with your smartphone for music and calls. The device lasts around 3.5 hours on a single charge.
ZEISS Takes Majority Stake in Tooz
German optical company, Zeiss, has bought a majority share of Tooz Technologies, a company that creates smart lenses for AR and VR. Tooz will continue to work independently, focusing on production and visual correction. Tooz creates smart lenses that integrate curved, reflective waveguides and “invisible” combiners that can also be sandwiched into a vision correction layer. Zeiss plans to use Tooz’s technology to equip other manufacturers’ AR and VR systems with prescription lenses. Zeiss has created VR and AR headsets in the past and sells aftermarket prescription lenses.
