Vuzix announces its tiniest, lowest power, most advanced microLED display-based projection engine

Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) has announced at the SID/DSCC Business Conference its tiniest, lowest power, most advanced microLED display-based projection engine to be made commercially available throughout the world. The company said these micro display engines, for which Vuzix partner Jade Bird Display will be supplying the microLEDs panels inside the projection engine, are built to be useful for a number of use cases — including view finders, HUDs, athletic eyewear, helmets, language translation pens, and pico-projectors. The engines will be utilized in the most advanced fashionable and ergonomic AR smart glasses currently in development by Vuzix.
