Okay, So Everysight’s Reality Smartglasses Caught My Attention
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.
