Vuzix Launches App Development Kit for M300 Smart Glasses

Vuzix Corporation today announced that it has begun shipping Alpha copies of its SDK for the recently unveiled M300 Smart Glasses – enabling developers to start developing and testing their apps using the Android emulator configured as an M300 device.

As part of Vuzix’ commitment for the timely launch of the M300 this summer and to help ensure a base of ready to run M300 optimized applications, developers can purchase the M300 SDK for $499 and when they purchase an M300 the $499 will be credited to that purchase. Developers will then receive a password to log into the Vuzix M300 developer section of the company’s website ( and sign up as an M300 Smart Glasses developer to access the Alpha release. This will provide them with the software tools required to start writing new code and modifying their existing M100 applications using the PC emulator for the M300 Android powered smart glasses.

Paul J. Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix, said, “We are delighted to make the M300 Alpha SDK/Emulator available. We understand that developers and their related applications are a crucial part of bringing smart ‘cloud connected’ glasses to the enterprise market. This early access will allow developers to convert their current apps to the M300’s larger and higher resolution screen and implement other advanced control features of the M300 as compared to our existing M100. It is also a great development platform for those just getting started with smart glasses. When new preorder customers who want to develop for the M300 sign up, they will receive a password that will enable immediate access to the tools.”

Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses delivers a “hands free” digital world, providing seamless access to information, data collection and more. It can significantly improve existing workflows and opens new opportunities in industrial, medical, retail, supply chain, remote help desk, and other aspects of the enterprise world. The new M300 is based on a common core platform for further upcoming new products from Vuzix and uses the Intel Atom processor running Android 6.0.

The new SDK will be delivered in stages and include frequent updates, as they become available this spring.
