Paul Travers, the CEO of Vuzix, has been busy these days. Selling AR glasses to the military for one million a pop sounds like a good deal to me. Especially when that DARPA money helps fund a commercial version.
May 3 (Bloomberg) — Augmented-reality glasses made by Vuzix Corp. may allow soldiers on the ground to coordinate with unmanned drones in the air. Vuzix signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop glasses to work with military drones. Bloomberg’s Megan Hughes reports the technology may also have potential civilian applications. (Source: Bloomberg)
