CENTER VALLEY, PA., November 6, 2017 — Drawing on its long history in the development of smart glasses technology, Olympus America Inc. announced today the launch of the EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 Smart Glasses in the United States. The patented optical system in the EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 enables users to see its display without blocking eyesight and easily access information whenever needed without interfering with their activities.

Within its lightweight and compact form factor, the EI-10 incorporates both wireless LAN and Bluetooth® technology for wireless connection to a network or to peripheral devices. The EI-10’s long battery life and hot swap capabilities allow for extended use in a variety of demanding business settings.

The EI-10 is equipped with an attachment mechanism that allows it to be easily mounted to safety glasses or prescription glasses, so it can be used in a variety of environments with varying safety requirements and business use cases. Embedded sensors allow for easy navigation of the user interface and applications, which include photo and video capture and playback, QR code reader, and utility functions for custom developed applications.

The EI-10 is equipped with the Android® operating system and users are able to develop customized applications via the development tools provided by Olympus. Additionally, Olympus is currently partnering with product and software developers to further enhance users’ experiences with the El-10.

WESTUNITIS (https://rms-et.westunitis.com/), a Japan-based software company, provides business solution software for use with the EI-10.

Olympus will continue to build their partner portfolio to facilitate the development of new opportunities and applications for the El-10 user.
