During the last five years, smart glass technology has evolved significantly. Today’s devices are less impertinent, more efficient, and faster than their predecessors. Emerging from the unimaginative reception of these devices in the consumer environment, the capabilities enabled by smart glass solutions are capable of driving real value in business environments. Smart glass technology is already advancing in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, field services, inspection, and operations.
A reference platform called DigiLens Crystal was introduced at the CES 2019 event in Las Vegas by DigiLens, which specializes in smart glass optics for AR applications. The new product provides OEMs with a customizable, cost-effective waveguide-based eyeglass style solution for industrial and consumer applications. DigiLens Crystal AR glasses are aimed at business users, offering low-weight, fully transparent waveguide-based optics at relatively low prices.

Augmented Reality’s completely transparent smartglasses deliver content indoors as well as outdoors. Maintenance and manufacturing workers can increase productivity, while at the same time, keep themselves safe by using these glasses. These glasses provide timely access to real-time remote assistance and enterprise data. But AR smartglasses which are currently available have tints that make up for low efficiency and dim displays. They are also heavy to wear, costly, and have limited battery life at the same time.
The USB-C power outlet is used by DigiLens Crystal, greatly simplifying the AR glass solution. Unimpaired transparency makes it possible for the DigiLens display to be present when it is needed. They look like clear glasses from the outside, but from the user's point of view, the display is so efficient that it can be used on a bright sunny day.
Proprietary photopolymer and low-cost holographic copy manufacturing process offer AR glasses to retail below $499 at a real consumer price point. Due to the increased optical efficiency, DigiLens Crystal can last up to five hours connected to a smartphone or up to fifteen hours with a portable power bank. By the end of 2019, DigiLens Crystal smart glasses will be available to consumers and OEMs as a fully integrated reference design platform.
