08 Jan Viewpointsystem Spotlights VPS 19 Smart Glasses
Viewpointsystem is showcasing the VPS 19 smart glasses, which combine eye tracking with a display element for a Mixed Reality experience. VPS 19 is a CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree in the Wearable Technologies category.
The inclusion of “digital iris” technology is what sets the VPS 19 apart from other wearable technologies. The digital iris is capable of interpreting a person’s eye behavior to enable interaction by eye gesture, both consciously and subconsciously. The user can interact with the elements displayed simply using his eyes instead of hands or voice. On the other hand, the system can detect whether an object is unconsciously receiving our attention or whether we are not perceiving something and reacting accordingly. For example, the VPS 19 provides information about these objects by highlighting them on the display, forcing the user to pay attention to these objects. The content on the display is kept to a minimum in order not to distract the user and to ensure full attention in the respective situation.
