The Vuzix Blade AR Smart Glasses Commercial Edge are now available for everyone.

Vuzix's AR Glasses were one of the highlights at the CES 2018. Now a year later, the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Glasses Commercial Edge are available for order also for consumers. Vuzix sells the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Glasses for $999 in the US and 1,099 Euro in Europe online at the Vuzix site.

Vuzix Blade provides a natural view of the real world while concurrently allowing AR content to be simply viewed and interactively managed, all without having to hold a phone in your hand. Besides Alexa, the Vuzix smart glasses also support Google Assistant now.

The Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses with their transparent optics were designed to overlay visual information such as GPS mapping directions, restaurant menus, weather information, event happenings, stock information, video conferencing, sports updates, health metrics, patient data, streaming video and more.
