Cosmo Connected Unveils a Pair of HUD-Equipped AR Smart Glasses

Nov 19, 2021

Category: Tech

Though the technology was first developed for military use, head-up displays — or “HUDs” — have become increasingly commonplace on high-end cars, though the tech has largely failed to gain much traction in other sectors. The team over at France’s Cosmo Connected is looking to change this, however, with the debut of a HUD-equipped pair of smart glasses that the brand has christened the Cosmo Vision.

Using ActiveLook tech, the Cosmo Vision displays real-time information onto the glasses’ right lens through augmented reality, projecting metrics such as speed, time, turn signal and lighting info, turn-by-turn GPS directions, and battery level, amongst others. An external gesture sensor also allows users to control the smart sunglasses using traditional tap and swipe-style inputs while the use of photochromic lenses and a light sensor enables the glasses to automatically adjust their tint level depending on lighting conditions. IP54-rated, the glasses are built around a ventilated, adjustable frame and feature low-energy-consumption Bluetooth 4.2 tech and connectivity to a dedicated Cosmo Vision app. The Cosmo Vision’s battery affords 12 hours of use and requires only three hours to receive a full charge.

Scheduled to ship out in December, the Cosmo Connected Cosmo Vision Smart HUD Glasses are available for preorder now, with pricing set at €489 (or approximately $555). Made in France, the smart glasses also come backed by a two-year warranty.

Purchase: $555
