  • MicroOptical's Bluetooth Kit
    • Eyewear system
    • Hands-free viewing
    • Free-floating monitor'

The MicroOptical Corporation introduced its DV-1 Digital Viewer, a color eyewear system featuring Bluetooth technology. The DV-1 viewer, which will be available to application providers and systems integrators in mid-June as a developer's kit, offers wireless, hands-free and head-up viewing of electronic devices.

The MicroOptical developer's kit includes a protocol for transmitting images over a Bluetooth serial link. A driver is used in the transmitting device to send the serialized image to the DV-1 viewer, which in turn receives the output signal from the Bluetooth-enabled electronic device and projects images through a patented optical system that allows the user to maintain natural vision and awareness of the environment. The monocular viewer, which clips on to either side of a pair of eyeglasses, gives the user the impression of a free-floating monitor. The DV-1 viewer is battery powered and readable in all lighting conditions.


Interesting. These solutions are starting to get more realistic every day! Could you see yourself using one of these if the price was affordable?
