The Origin of NuEyes
CEO Mark Greget was working with distributing magnifying boxes for the visually impaired in their homes. A recurring question arose as to why technology had not been created in glasses to do the same thing as the big and bulky boxes. Next came the idea to create a pair of glasses that would fulfill these needs. Soon after Mark started working with different manufacturers for head-worn devices trying to find what was going to be best for the consumer.
Headworn Electronic Magnifier for Low Vision that is Evenly Balanced and Comfortable to Wear
Unlike other products that are simply a VR headset smartphone holder, the e2 was designed from the ground up to be evenly balanced on your face for maximum comfort. Because the e2 is a self-contained device, it eliminates the added weight and heat of a smartphone that is simply inside a VR holder. They are the only all-in-one device designed to help the visually impaired with maximum comfort allowing it to be worn for extended periods of time.
3K Display and an HD Camera
The NuEyes e2 delivers unparalleled clarity with a 3K display (1440 x 1600 screen resolution at 90hz refresh rate), 101-degree field of view, HD camera with auto focus and QUALCOMM 835 snapdragon processor.
How Does the NuEyes e2 Work?
The NuEyes e2 was designed to be a device that not only helps the visually impaired but is extremely easy to use. The only thing you need to do is press the power button and put the device on your head.
Because of its 3K LCD screens you will immediately notice how clear the world becomes. The NuEyes e2 is so simple to use that you control the device with just three buttons. Button one lets you select from a variable magnification depending if you want to read, watch TV, or look at a loved one’s face. Depending on your eye condition you use the second button to choose from three different contrast settings. The third and final button is for OCR/text to speech. If your eyes get tired from reading or you experience eye strain, let the OCR or Optical Character Recognition read the text to you!
