The Vuzix Smart Glasses M100 will be the world's first, commercially 
available, hands free display and cloud connected communications system. The 
Vuzix M100 contains a virtual display with integrated camera and powerful 
processing engine, running the Android OS. Users can connect wirelessly to 
their smartphone (iOS or Android) or other compatible devices. The M100 is 
also powerful enough to connect directly to the Internet, run applications and 
games itself. Working in harmony with a smartphone, users can engage with 
existing and future applications such texts, video, email, mapping, and audio. 
As a hands free accessory with integrated camera/display functionality, Vuzix 
smart glasses not only let you answer the phone with a visual address book, 
they enable applications from text messaging and email to visual navigation 
(via an integrated GPS and head tracker) along with more advanced features 
like video recording. The interactive head tracking and integrated HD camera, 
combined with applications on the M100 and a smartphone linked to the Cloud, 
empower smartphone based augmented reality applications. 
Paul J. Travers, Chief Executive Officer, said, "The announcement of the Vuzix 
Smart Glasses and its eminent availability is the culmination of years of work 
by the Vuzix team.  We were delighted to win the CES Best of Innovation Award 
and hope that this is simply the beginning of a great line of Vuzix smart 
glass technology. In 2012, we saw many new augmented reality applications 
being developed. This year we will see even further applications and ideas 
coming to market and now with the M100 smart glasses, developers now have a 
specific device on the Android OS platform to develop for. We've just opened 
the Vuzix developer portal and are already shipping SDK's, so we're confident 
that the M100 smart glasses deliver must have technology and useful 
applications in a compact, smartphone accessory." 
Vuzix Smart Glasses M100, Vuzix Wrap 1200D and Vuzix 1200AR will be showcased 
at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show, January 8(th) to 11(th).
