Vuzix, a leading supplier of smart glasses and video eyewear products, partnered with communications and info-tech giant Nokia to develop the new Waveguide optics engine that easily adds Google Glass capabilities into standard eyeglass frames.

Waveguide optics is a new way of moving light within smart glasses and is lighter and smaller than the conventional prism-based optics used in other smart wearable devices such as Google Glass. Waveguide also allows for a wider field of view for the user.

Waveguide optics will be first introduced with the new Vuzix M2000AR HMD, which is equipped with a 720p display and 1080p camera, HDMI interface, integrated head tracking, integrated compass, a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and more.

Vuzix will present the new weareable device at CES 2014 in January.
