Israeli consumer wearable technology startup Everysight has launched its smartglasses for cyclists. Everysight has been spun off from defense electronics company Elbit Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: ESLT; TASE: ESLT), a market leader in advanced fighter jet and rotary wing helmet mounted display systems. The Everysight team possesses extensive experience in augmented reality and vision display systems to the consumer wearable market.
Driven by a passion for cycling, the company chose to focus first on smartglasses for cyclists and, in 2016, will launch its first product: Raptor by Everysight. Raptor smartglasses pack uniquely unobtrusive display technology and powerful functions into a deceptively sleek design. The team spent several years working with professional cyclists to design and optimize Raptor, which looks and feels like traditional sports eyewear, but with hidden technology that helps athletes get the most out of their activity.
Raptor will also be equipped with Everysight Beam technology, which sets it apart and makes it a superior and first-of-its-kind product. Similar to technology used by pilots for decades, Everysight Beam is a unique see-through display technology that crisply overlays information directly in the wearer's line of sight. With Everysight Beam, the lens itself serves as the augmented display, eliminating offset displays found on other smartglasses. Everysight Beam avoids peripheral distractions, reduces eyestrain and eliminates opaque display elements that can obscure the view. In addition to superior optics, smartglasses with Everysight Beam are stylish, lighter and more comfortable.
Everysight CEO Asaf Ashkenazi said, “We have more than 30 years of experience and dominate the market in vision systems and augmented reality, integrating real-time data in pilots’ helmets to optimize performance and keep pilots safe and focused on what matters. Now we’re bringing this experience to the consumer market with smartglasses that will revolutionize how athletes see and experience information. Raptor is the first step in our greater plan to create a full line of smartglasses.”
