At the 2016 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 22-25, optics pioneer ZEISS will introduce its next generation data glasses prototype to the tech community.

At Pepcom’s international media event MobileFocus Global on Feb. 21 the smart glass prototype and design will be shown in Europe for the first time.

The new ZEISS optical system enables the creation of data glasses that look like fashionable everyday glasses and can be integrated into a wide variety of frames, enabling different styles from business to sport. Furthermore, it comes with a prescription option. At 2016 CES in Las Vegas, the new system has been rated “best of CES” by various media, including Wired, Ubergizmo and IDG.

The Smart Optics project has been established as a start-up entity by the ZEISS Group, with full access to all ZEISS competencies and resources.
