HMD maker Vuzix partners with metaio for a new augmented reality accessory kit for the Vuzix VR920 video glasses.
Vuzix AR Accessory Kit consists of the CamAR and the PhasAR.
The CamAR is a clip-on USB camera that mounts onto a pair of Vuzix Video Eyewear. The CamAR not only allows the user to see through to the real world but is also designed to accurately track objects and the user’s position in 3-dimensional space.
The PhasAR is a wireless augmented reality input controller designed to be used in unison with the CamAR.
The PhasAR allows users to interact with virtual, mixed and augmented reality worlds with a revolutionary 6 degree of freedom tracking system that lets the computer know exactly where the user is touching in the virtual and real worlds. Depending on the application, the PhasAR can become anything from a powerful virtual magic wand to a 3-D virtual paint brush.
The PhasAR enables powerful 2-D like mouse support in order to effortlessly control virtual objects in 3-D space.

At the GDC 2009 (takes place this week) Vuzix will demonstrate how a simple printed page can be brought to life with 3D animated characters that literally pop out of the book. Additionally, be prepared to experience the thrill of a fantasy tale coming to life with a fire breathing dragon flying overhead.
