The glasses also contain microphones to suppress noise and speakers to let sound be heard. The intention is not to make glasses for augmented reality, but it seems to be more about displaying notifications from the connected smartphone. You can also call and listen to music. The further exact specifications are not yet known. Vuzix usually makes products for the business market. The new glasses should be available from this summer.
