We want to provide an option for people who can’t afford to spend over $1,000 on an existing wearable display. At around $150, Vufine is extremely affordable, but above all- it’s extremely useful.

Vufine will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $50,000 to bring the glasses-mounted wearable display to market. The display places the image of what is on your phone, tablet, laptop or camera, onto the screen directly in front of your right eye. It is extremely user-friendly – Vufine quickly and easily connects to a user’s glasses and can be attached to any device with an HDMI cable.
“We want to provide an option for people who can’t afford to spend over $1,000 on an existing wearable display,” said Vufine creator Goro Kosaka. “At around $150, Vufine is extremely affordable, but above all- it’s extremely useful. Since it connects to most devices and simply displays data, people don’t need to go out of their way to find different potential uses.”
The Vufine display can be used in a multitude of ways. Consumers can plug Vufine into any mobile device to act as a second monitor. It can display information like GPS directions and text messages hands free and on-the-go. Consumers can watch streaming video while on their everyday commute to the city on the train or ferry. It can also be used as a wearable viewfinder for any HDMI-outputting camera and works perfectly with action video devices like GoPro to ensure that consumers capture the scene they intended on.
While Vufine might look slightly comparable to the other wearable displays, there are multiple differentiators that set it apart from the competition:
- It’s a wearable secondary display that quickly and easily connects to glasses; it is not a wearable computer
- It simply facilitates a new, wearable display for existing devices
- There is no operating system that consumers need to install, learn and become comfortable with
- There is no camera, so consumers don’t need to be worried about privacy concerns
Currently, Vufine can sustain around 1.5 hours of constant use on one battery charge. It’s easily connected to an external USB battery pack and can run continuously, without overheating, for over eight hours. The connected device must be capable of outputting an HDMI signal. When Vufine’s Kickstarter campaign begins next week, early backers will be able to order the device for as low as $99. For more information, visit http://www.vufine.com.
