Okay, So Everysight’s Reality Smartglasses Caught My Attention

Everysight Raptor

There is no shortage in the amount of new gadgets coming out on the market each month.  Even in the cycling world, I have seen so many new ideas flash across my screen this past year.  But when I heard about this one, it totally got excited in a techy good way.

Seriously, this is one new tech toy that I have to give a try.

A company called Everysight is launching their Raptor Augmented Reality Smartglasses which are to deliver a Fighter Jet Display experience for cyclists.

I’ve never paid much attention to any of the other smartglasses on the market, but these guys have this to say about the Raptor:

“Current smartglasses obstruct the rider’s vision.  The Raptor provides riders with a true augmented reality experience by floating information crisply and directly before the eye without blocking an athlete’s vision, meaning they can safely access and analyze vital information on-the-go and maximize their performance,”  Asaf Ashkenazi, CEO of Everysight.

Through the use of BEAM™ technology the Raptor smartglasses provide a true AR experience using a transparent see-through display that overlays sharp, high-resolution information into the user’s line of sight. The on-lens projection displays real-time information such as turn-by-turn navigation, time, distance, speed, heart rate, cadence and power, while reducing eyestrain and keeping a rider’s vision clear.

But there is more.  Riders may choose to use a controller located on their handlebars, voice command or a simple swipe and touch pad located on the temples of the Raptor to control functions including maps, volume, brightness, communication and more. A look-and-shoot camera captures high definition video that can be uploaded and analyzed post-ride. Videos can also be shared with friends and followers through any social media channel.  Plus they can be synced with popular fitness and cycling apps as well.

Okay, so how cool is this?  Yeah, us cyclists are going to feel like James Bond on a bike when we put these babies on.

Would you like to pre-test a pair of Raptors?

As Everysight prepares for the Raptor consumer launch, they are also taking applications for an exclusive team of Test Pilots, who will receive pre-release versions of the Raptor.  Test Pilots will shape the user experience by test-driving and providing feedback during the final phase of Raptor’s development. Everyone who applies will reserve a spot in line to be the first to purchase the consumer version when it launches.

    Pretty cool.A long time ago I had been working on a project to do this type of thing inside swimming goggles, a sport where it is REALLY hard to look at your wrist (or handlebars) to get this type of information. The technology was really not ready for prime time then but it appears to be now.
    Good stuff

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
