The Company, a world leader in rugged, high-resolution head mounted display
(HMD) and OEM optoelectronic module manufacturing, was acquired from Vuzix
Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, OTC BB: VUZI) on June 15, 2012.

The Tac-Eye AR displays are see-through AR-enabled binocular or monocular
systems that offer a 40 degree field of view for use in a wide variety of
industrial, medical, commercial, and defense applications. Six15’s patented
optical see-through system allows users to view the real world while
simultaneously viewing relevant computer generated information, graphics and
alerts. The Tac-Eye AR specifications deliver a solution far superior to any
product available on the market today.

As part of this new offering, Six15 Technologies has partnered with APX Labs
to provide the core software solutions that drive the augmented reality
environment. APX Labs’ truAR software manages the user experience and
interaction with the Tac-Eye, connects the device in real-time to other users
and systems, and manages how custom applications run on the Tac-Eye AR.
Upcoming software developer kits will allow rapid adoption of the technology
by developers everywhere.

“Smart Glasses enable people to get work done better, faster, cheaper and
safer. These hands-free real-time mobile applications are incredibly powerful
and applicable to almost every enterprise. Just a year ago, none of this was
possible, but breakthroughs in the hardware that Six15 is building combined
with our software make it real today,” said Brian Ballard, CEO of APX Labs.
“We are incredibly excited about the road ahead and working with Six15 to
bring Smart Glasses to market.”

“As Six15 Technologies continues to expand into commercial and medical
markets, we are focused on delivering solutions immediately. Our new
see-through HMD solution leverages technology that is already developed,
tested, and proven in the field with our defense customers”, said CEO Rich
Ryan.

“To increase our speed to market, we look to those companies who we feel are
at the leading edge in their field and seek to partner with them. APX Labs is
clearly one such company. This partnership enables us to integrate a superior
software solution with our proven display technology in a manner that will
deliver immediate solutions to customers in the commercial, medical, and
defense sectors,” added Ryan.
