Mr David Lock, Director of Operations EMEA Region
Vuzix (Europe) Ltd
As companies seek opportunities to jump on the "smart glasses" bandwagon, many have very little knowledge of what it takes to create an electro-optical system that is truly wearable. Almost anyone can purchase components and modules to create smart glasses, but the real advancement and innovation in these wearable wonders will come from companies who have extensive knowledge on optical systems. Vuzix as a world's leader in this area will discuss and demonstrate its advanced "waveguide" technology.
