Vuzix Updates on Business and M300 Status

Vuzix Blade 3000 prototype at CES Vuzix said that it has now achieved certification of its M300 glasses and expects to ship into Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, India and New Zealand before the end of Q1.

The M300 software now shipping with production units incorporates new features including advanced voice control, updated sound support with speech recognition from Sensory and improved barcode scanning. Over the air software updates are also now fully enabled along with advanced power and thermal management features not available in previous versions. The M300 Smart Glasses, after having gone through over six months of in-market testing with customers and developers, is now in volume production at our sub-contractor’s California plant.

The company plans to ship at least 1,000 M300 units this quarter. The company also said that it has growing demand for its M100 glasses and these are now on back order with more production planned for this spring.

“Interest and demand indications for our Blade 3000 Smart Sunglasses has been near overwhelming from our existing and new customers as well as from potential OEM partners. Accordingly, Vuzix intends to re-focus some its resources to bringing a version to market as early as practical.” said Paul J. Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.
