Voice recognition has already grabbed huge attention of people. This feature is now gradually being attached into many devices. And lately, Vuzix has announced that its M100 smartglasses will incorporate voice recognition powered by Nuance Communications.
The Vuzix M100 smartglasses are a flexible Android-based wearable display platform that runs a growing number of industry-specific software applications. This Android-based eyewear comes with built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and is able to record HD video (720p).
On the other hand, Nuance’s voice technology will give the user a powerful and intuitive way to engage the M100 smartglasses, while increasing safety and task efficiencies in the workplace. Nuance’s embedded voice technology will run directly on the M100 smartglasses, so no data connection will be required.
The M100 smartglasses will also incorporate noise-cancelling technology that will allow users to speak simple commands to control and navigate the M100 menu system.
Paul Travers, CEO of Vuzix said in a statement, “Vuzix is focused on delivering powerful wearable technologies to the industrial, medical, and prosumer markets. By integrating Nuance’s voice technology into our M100 platform, we’ve given our customers even greater flexibility in the way they can use our smart glasses to solve issues that challenge their business. And because a user can speak naturally, integrating smart glass technology into our customers’ business processes is more intuitive and simply faster, saving both time and money.”
The Nuance voice technology will be available in the Vuzix M100 2.0 OS release. At present, there is no mention when Vuzix M100 2.0 OS will be released. Vuzix M100 smartglasses cost $999. For more information, hit the link below.
