Micro LED will be used as projectors for the smart glasses to deliver high density pixel arrays with both monochrome and full color solution. The glasses will also feature a larger field of view (FOV), advanced waveguide optics and binocular displays, including 3D, alongside Vuzix' patent pending immersive stereo acoustic speakers.

The glasses also have noise-cancelling microphones that enable phone calls and voice/UI integration between the user and their phone. Moreover, the batteries will be in the temples of the glasses to enhance comfort for users. In addition to WiFi and Bluetooth, there will be a cellular LTE integration option, so a phone will not be required for hands communications. All powered by a modern CPU running Android with support for third party applications.

Vuzix announced in July that its patent portfolio for Micro LED smart glasses has increased in the past three years. The company started to work with Plessey in 2018 to build Micro LED AR smart glasses. With more details revealed, we may be seeing the first Micro LED AR glasses soon.
