The SGM application streamlines the interaction between the user's M100 and their smartphone, enabling a seamless connection that allows users to control their M100 Smart Glasses directly from either an Android or iOS platform. Utilizing the M100 Smart Glasses in tandem with the SGM manager application, users can launch and control any M100 application such as operating the M100 camera, sharing pictures, viewing hardware settings for the M100 and connecting to wireless networks.

"We are very excited to make the SGM app available on both Apple iTunes and Google Play," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "Enabling support on Apple's iOS platform and now being downloadable from both Apple iTunes and Google Play makes it very easy to enable and control Vuzix Smart Glasses features on both platforms. Following our initial support of Android devices, we now have added full iOS support, considered 'mission' critical for many of our customers. Being on both stores will make the Vuzix Smart Glasses that much easier to enable for all of our customers."

Eschenbach’s New Headlight LED Attaches Easily to Eyewear


More Images
Product: Headlight LED
Top Line: Eschenbach clip-on LED light, the Headlight LED, is a new hands-free illumination device. It includes a MaxDetail with the Headlight LED already attached using a customized adapter that fits over the bridge.
Close Up: The two bright LEDs provide an outstanding 3,200 lux of flicker-free illumination at 25cm (approx. 10 inches from the object) or 1,200 lux at 40cm (approx. 16 inches from the object). This high brightness is possible due, in part, to the incorporation of new CPC (Compound Parabolic Concentrator) optic technology.
The Headlight LED uses 3 AA batteries (included) and the operating time is about 8 consecutive hours in full LED bright mode. Using the Eco mode (about 75 percent brightness), the operating time is approximately 13 consecutive hours.
The batteries are contained in a sleek case that can be placed in a pocket or on a belt using the optional belt clip. The battery case is connected to the LEDs by a thin cable 1m (3.2 feet) long that can be attached to the temples of the eyewear so it is out of the way. The vertical angle of the light is adjustable so it can be pointed up or down depending where the object being viewed is located. And the weight of the lighting element is only 8 grams (2 ounces), so it’s very portable.
Vital Stats: A protective, hard foam case traveling case is included and the lamp housing dimensions are 32 (1.2 in) x 20 (.7 in) x 34mm (1.3 in). Illumination strength: Approx. 3200 lux at 250mm, 1200 lux at 400mm; illumination time: Approx. eight hours normal mode, approx.. 14 hours in eco mode.
