    Everysight, a consumer augmented reality company working to bring AR technology to consumers is soon going to announce the company's flagship product- Raptor AR Sunglasses. Everysight AR Smartglasses will work on Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E embedded platform, which is tiny yet powerful enough to handle complex AR algorithms. As per the Qualcomm's news sources, the Snapdragon 410E embedded platform was included on the Raptor using a custom board developed by eInfochips.

    Asaf Ashkenazi, CEO, Everysight, says, "One of the biggest challenges in bringing AR technology to consumers was form factor, and the Snapdragon 410E embedded platform provided us with a tiny but mighty platform, small enough to fit in a pair of glasses, powerful enough to run our software."

    To give you a brief about the company's flagship product, Raptors are the first- announced consumer focused augmented reality smartglasses from Everysight, the largest defense technology company in Israel. The defense technology company specializes in Helmet Mounted Systems for fighter jet pilots and has been working on consumer AR displays for a dozen years.

    Aimed at fitness, the AR glasses and are designed to provide cyclists, triathletes, and early adopters with a competitive advantage that enhances training by providing them with the real-time information they need to transform into faster, fitter, and more efficient riders.

    The Snapdragon 410E embedded platform will enable Raptor with compute capabilities necessary to display real time data such as route navigation, time, distance, speed, heart rate, cadence and power through on-lens projection displays. The AR glasses feature a multimedia display with rich-full graphics and overall low power consumption, allowing for up to 8 hours of usage per charge.

     

    Qualcomm's embedded platform also enables Raptor to integrate wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi and ANT+Bluetooth. This allows the smartglasses to interface with the cloud as well as multiple wireless sensors using different types of protocols.

    How Raptor AR Sunglasses work?

    Everysight's patented BEAM technology is the driving force behind the upcoming AR smartglasses. The technology is said to give the Raptor a true AR experience using a transparent see-through display that overlays sharp, high-resolution information into the user's line of sight, while reducing eyestrain and keeping a rider's vision clear. As per reports, the information appears as a projection out in front of the user rather than delivering information with an object or element located around the eye area that obscures the rider's vision, like other competitive products.

    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 social media channels.

    The Raptor pairs with external sensors to capture additional data. All captured information (heart rate, cadence, speed, power, etc.) uploads to Raptor's companion app (Android and iOS), and can be shared through social media channels or synced to popular third-party fitness and cycling apps.

    While we have seen and tested several wearables equipped with health monitoring functionalities, Raptor AR Smartglasses seem the most interesting one in the lot. We will keep a close eye on the upcoming product that does look like straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. Stay tuned on Gizbot for more on Everysight Raptor AR Smartglasses.
