I am quite sure that seeing a pair of smart glasses around in public is not going to surprise anyone anymore these days, taking into consideration the number of smart devices that have more or less proliferated the market at this point in time. For instance, while Google’s Glass did not really take off in the way in which the Internet search giants expected, it still proved to be a popular device amongst those whom Google call “Glass Explorers”, and other manufacturers, too, have stepped up to deliver a version of Google Glass that have been interpreted on their own terms, technologically or otherwise. Case in point, the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses. Today marks a brand new step for the Vuzix M100 as it has arrived in a prescription capable safety glass format, now how about that when it comes to increasing the versatility of the device?
Industry leader Rochester Optical has officially introduced its ANSI (American National Standards Institute) rated safety glasses for the Vuzix M100, where the safety glasses will boast of side shields that have undergone a meticulous degree of tests and successfully met ANSI/ISEA (International Safety Equipment Association) Z87.1-2010 standards. At time of publishing, Rochester Optical remains as the first and only optical manufacturer to deliver prescription safety glasses for Vuzix M100.
The availability of Z87.1-2010 certified eyeglasses for the M100 smart glasses will now enable companies to conduct pilots to roll out programs to additional users, and at the end of the day, into broader adoption without having to compromise on worker safety. After all, employees view the smart glasses display frequently and for long durations, which is way apart from safety, visual acuity, comfort and fashion are also critical factors to take into consideration. Thanks to Rochester Optical’s Smart GOLD Lenses, it minimizes eyestrain and eye fatigue, which will enable the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses to be worn comfortably for extended periods of time.
