ESSNZ Berlin – The first smart glasses with prescription for all-day use

Until recently, AR headsets and smart glasses haven’t met one of the core end consumer expectations: scalable prescription. As the need for vision correction is dramatically increasing, especially among younger people, a high-quality AR display must consider the prescription market. The tooz ESSNZ Berlin smart glasses augment visual information in the wearer’s field of view while keeping the initial function – individual vision correction – of everyday glasses. With a slim and stylish frame, the wearable is almost indistinguishable from normal eyewear.

Combining prescription glasses and AR
The unique curved waveguide lens is the centerpiece of the design as it allows for seamless integration of vision correction and thus, ophthalmic smart glasses. When wearing the ESSNZ Berlin smart glasses, people with myopia, hyperopia or presbyopia can thus sharply see the environment as well as the augmented content.

Turnkey solution for the end consumer market
The ESSNZ Berlin reference design allows fast and efficient adaptation to individual specifications of customers product requirements, whether businesses or in consumer segments. The fully functioning turnkey solution is thus a low risk and cost-effective way to speed up the timeline for companies investing in AR glasses. By realizing corporate colors, styles and designs on a custom smart glass solution, a differentiated and unique perception and recognition of customers brands is ensured.
