Sunnyvale, CA and Paris, France (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
LASTER Technologies, creator of SeeThru Augmented Reality (AR) eyewear, today announced the availability of five new color versions of their SeeThru eyewear. The new SeeThru Iron Edition designs will come in white, blue, red, grey, and black.
“People want smart eyewear that not only lets them do great things, but reflects their sense of style,” said Zile Liu, CEO and founder of LASTER Technologies. “SeeThru now lets you choose one of our five new colors or you can create your own design with our BIY kit. We’ve committed to making technically superior eyewear and we want to give anyone a creative canvas by which they can design their own smart eyewear. A perfect example of this were the frames painted by respected artists at our recent Kickstarter party.”
Photographs of the artists’ renderings can be seen on LASTER’s Facebook page. The Iron Edition will be available in June 2014 fully assembled by the LASTER development team. It can be ordered via the company’s Kickstarter campaign page at http://www.LASTER.fr/kickstarter for a contribution of $419. Current investors who would prefer to change their pledge to receive the Iron Edition can do so by editing their pledge via Kickstarter.
What Makes LASTER SeeThru Unique
LASTER Technologies’ SeeThru eyewear provides the only genuine Augmented Reality wireless eyewear on the market, so wearers see the real world through their own eyes rather than through the lens of a camera. AR content is displayed via SeeThru, within the wearer’s natural field of vision, allowing them to experience AR content unadulterated by a camera.
Providing a larger field of view and higher quality images than other glass products, SeeThru also displays data in front of the viewer—avoiding the awkward looking up and to the right that other glasses require. This allows for a higher quality viewing experience that not only enhances visibility, but makes activities more enjoyable and safe. SeeThru can be used for AR GPS, navigation, HUD, and outdoor activities. They can also be used every day to:
- See information on time, date, calendar, pop-up messages, news;
- See simple images and photos;
- Browse the Internet;
- See text messages, emails, contact information;
- Answer your phone hands-free;
- Play music;
- Play games;
- Read E-Books.
A video of all SeeThru’s applications can be viewed at: http://www.laster.fr/seethru. LASTER SeeThru uses GPS location information coupled with accurate, built-in sensors (gyroscopes, accelerometer and a compass) to detect orientation and position determining exactly where the wearer is and in which direction they are looking. And LASTER SeeThru does all of this without a socially invasive camera, ensuring privacy for everyone around the wearer.
SeeThru glasses can be acquired for as little as $349. LASTER is now offering free shipping to anywhere in the world with a $349 contribution.
