If you want AR glasses that will work seamlessly with your life, making everything from shopping to travel to social media that much easier and more enjoyable, then Vuizx Blade smart glasses are the way to go.

Perhaps the best thing about Vuzix Blade smart glasses is the fact that they look almost like normal glasses, albeit a bit thick.

If you loved the idea of Google Glass but never got your hands on a pair (or invested at exactly the wrong time), you’ll be happy to learn Vuzix has finally released its long-awaited Blade Smart Glasses. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to get your hands on them unless you’re willing to part with a cool $1,000.

Move over, fitness trackers and smartwatches. Vuzix’s new $1,000 AR Blade smart glasses are ready to shake up the wearables market this year.

Unlike other wearables, the Blade smart glasses feature a slimmer design, a floating Google Glass display, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. These high-tech spectacles don’t come cheap though: You’ll have to pay $1,000 for the Blade smart glasses, which will start shipping at the end of January.

Perhaps nowhere else in CES looks more like a sci-fi movie than the AR and VR display areas. Representatives from healthcare, sports, entertainment and more show off their newest developments. We’ve seen a huge boom in consumer AR and VR in recent years, and trends indicate it will continue to improve. One of the sleekest and most in-demand products should be the Vuzix Blade AR glasses, which allow for hands-free AR overlays on transparent lenses. Hopefully I get to try them out!

Vuzix has brought its Blade AR smart glasses to CES for the past couple of years, but ahead of CES 2019, it’s shaking things up a bit. Though we still expect Vuzix to have the Blade on hand at CES, it’s doing things a bit differently this year by putting the AR specs up for pre-order. Developers, enterprise customers, and enthusiast consumers who want to get in on the ground floor can pick up a pair beginning today.

I’ve been using the pre-release version of the Blade for several weeks now and can honestly say it’s the only piece of AR Hardware (aside from my Pixel 2) that I have gone back to several times.

Three weeks ago I met with Paul Travers, Founder and CEO of AR glasses maker Vuzix, to talk about the much anticipated upcoming release of the new Vuzix Blade, their first hybrid consumer - enterprise monocular display. The new Blade is light and easy to use. Vuzix has done a brilliant job of integrating intuitive easy to learn and easy to use touch control on the wings.

It's a good thing there are people out there too sensible to listen to everything Tim Cook says. Last year Mr We-Can't-Make-Quality-AR-Glasses-Yet claimed we don't have the actual tech to make AR glasses that are any good. I was lucky enough to get a go with the Vuzix Blade AR glasses at Mobile World Congress, and I can tell you that Tim Cook was either lying to cover Apple's tracks as it develops its own AR glasses, or completely wrong.
