Many features of the NuEyes smart glasses can be personalized allowing for a wide variety of conditions to make use of the many applications offered.
- An android computer in the low vision glasses allows ease of browsing emails and full web browsing.
- Real sight is replicated to simulate the human eye with magnification ranging from 1x-12x (with included optional 2x lens).
A full Android computer allows the “smart” glasses to function as an Android tablet with downloadable apps and a full web browser, including social media applications. This makes keeping in contact with loved ones and managing emails easy. A commonly used system among people with low vision is the Library for the Blind. The application can be downloaded to the low vision glasses to read books to the user.
Wireless, battery-powered, and hands free voice-activated interaction allows for effortless use. Real sight is replicated through auto-focus, switching between ranges according to tasks to simulate human eyes. A variable magnification from 1x-12x enables these ranges. Short-range vision allows reading small text and seeing up close. Mid-range vision will help in seeing faces or watching TV. Long-range vision allows sight for far away, such as looking outside a window (with included optional 2x lens).
