M100 Smart glasses FAQ
The Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses is an Android-based wearable computer, enhanced with a wearable monocular display and computer, recording features and wireless connectivity capabilities designed for commercial, professional, and prosumer users. Its pre-installed apps can be used to record and playback still pictures and video, track timed events, manage your calendar, link to your phone and more. The M100 is compatible with thousands of existing Android apps and easy access to developer resources enables the creation of custom apps to suit virtually any need.
We do not currently support Google APIs or services. Any application depending on these services will result in an error when launching the application on the M100.
We do not currently support Google Cloud Messaging. Any push notifications would need to be provided by a third party application.
Install via Vuzix App Store
If the application you wish to install is on our App Store, log in to the app store and register your device. From there, any of the application that you add to your app store library will be installed to your M100 once it has an internet connection. To enable OTA, go to the App Manager in the Setting application and enable it. You can also, from this menu, select the method the M100 will choose to determine when it updates going forward.
Install via Vuzix Smart Glasses System File Manager
You can use our Smart Glasses System File Manager to load APKs directly to the M100. You can download and install System File Manager from here.
Install via ADB
If you are familiar with ADB (Android Debug Bridge), using commands in that protocol is the simplest and most direct way of loading an application to the device via USB. You’ll need ADB to be installed (you can follow this tutorial), and then simply issue the command ‘adb install <filename>.apk’ from within the directory that contains the apk in a Command Prompt window.
Install from M100 Filesystem
You can also load applications directly to the filesystem of the M100 either by downloading from a URL linking directly to the application, or via USB (to the Download directory). You can then install the APK from the Downloads application on the M100. You will need to enable the installation of applications from unknown sources to do this. To do so, go to the Security area in the Settings application and enable the “Unknown sources” option.
Yes, additional grammars can be added to our voice engine for a cost – [cost] per grammar. Vuzix will create the additional grammars for you which can then be installed on the device. It is not possible for end users to add additional grammars independently.
Screencasting is not officially supported in the current version of Android (4.0.4 – Ice Cream Sandwich) being used on the M100. The best option which exists today is utilizing ADB over the built in USB micro port and an application such as Droid@Screen.
