NuEyes, ThirdEye launch augmented reality glasses
NuEyes has partnered with ThirdEye to introduce the Pro 2 lightweight X2 MR Glasses for patients who have experienced visual impairment uncorrectable by traditional methods.
“We’re excited to be partnering with NuEyes to help users read, watch television and movies, see faces and, ultimately, improve their quality of life,” Nick Cherukuri, founder and CEO of ThirdEye, said in a press release. “By combining our product with NuEyes’ patented software, the Pro 2 will improve day-to-day functions for thousands and help many regain their independence.”
The product uses augmented reality to help patients’ whose vision cannot be corrected with conventional glasses or surgery due to conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinitis pigmentosa. The wearer can control magnification, contrast and optical character recognition, with a touch of a button or through voice command.
“Augmented reality smart glass technology has come a long way in the past few years, and Nick and his team have done an outstanding job encompassing those innovations in the X2 MR Glasses,” Mark Greget, founder and CEO of NuEyes, said in the release. “With this partnership, we are excited to once again make a lasting and positive change in the world for those that suffer from vision loss.”
