Vuzix, Fraunhofer Form Partnership for Wearable Displays
Jul 2011
ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 15, 2011 — Vuzix Corp. announced a strategic technology development partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) to develop MEMS devices that are optimized for augmented and virtual wearable display solutions.

The collaboration will produce a key component that integrates both the display and optics into a monolithic display engine, with a goal of enabling sunglasses-style video glasses. Fraunhofer IPMS will support Vuzix’ design of video eyewear and head-mounted displays for the global mobile smartphone, console gaming and defense markets.

Fraunhofer’s MEMS devices are a key component for creating a single electro-optic device for the New York-based company’s next-generation high-definition video eyewear displays.

Vuzix supplies video eyewear products for the defense, consumer, and media and entertainment markets.
