Who is NuEyes?
Veterans Mark Greget and Justin Moore founded NuEyes in 2016. The technology behind NuEyes electronic glasses originally came from product designs for military use. In Partnership with Osterhout Design Group (ODG), NuEyes and ODG came together to create low vision glasses to help the visually impaired. “With all the augmented reality that is coming to the market, none of that was being leveraged to help with low vision,” said Justin Moore. “We thought, ‘Let’s do something, like Google glasses, but with a purpose.”
Benefits of NuEyes Electronic Glasses
NuEyes low vision glasses have a sleek black design with the additional benefit of being lightweight and easy to use anywhere. Essentially, the electronic glasses are a head worn computer with a digital camera, 12x zoom, and a light built-in. A camera on the front of the low vision glasses plays back a live-stream video with a brighter, sharper, and larger image on the inside of the glasses. The possibility of using a small remote or voice commands can control the electronic glasses. For example, saying “glasses make bigger” or “glasses make smaller” can zoom images in or out. An entertainment feature, allows for the streaming of movies and TV shows.
