Additionally, a simple touchpad swipe or voice command allows users to check the week’s forecast. The 3D info is displayed in a non-intrusive way, allowing you to remain focused on the task at hand.
Augmented weather is just one example of how smart glasses will improve our lives. Moreover, voice technology will allow us to access our phone’s features hands-free.

The implications are massive. Not sure where to eat lunch? Apps like Yelp for smart glasses broadcast a restaurant’s store hours, rating, and food images in 3D as you walk down the street. The app hones in on the user’s GPS location within 1/5 of a mile.
Vuzix strives to make this technology available to all consumers. Augmented weather is but one of countless smartglass features that will make life easier.
