Vuforia support for the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses will enable users to improve workflows and open new market opportunities in the enterprise.  The Vuzix M300 is an industry proven personal display and wearable computing device that has been successfully deployed within the enterprise to provide hands-free mobile computing.

PTC worked closely with Vuzix to optimize Vuforia Engine for the M300. PTC's device-level expertise was critical to best utilize the M300's Intel Atom processor and Android OS. Vuforia support for the Vuzix M300 will give more than 400,000 Vuforia developers a new hands-free option for deploying AR solutions in the enterprise.

Vuforia developers can start today by downloading the Unity 2017.3 Beta, or the Vuforia early access release for the Vuzix M300 on the Vuforia Developer Portal. The Vuzix M300 has extensive physical distribution channels and is currently shipping devices into 45 countries across the globe with plans underway to expand distribution to 55 countries worldwide.

"This is an important milestone for AR in the enterprise, where hands-free devices are critical to adoption.  Enterprise developers and solution providers can now develop and deploy Vuforia applications on the M300 – a proven device in the enterprise," said Jay Wright, President, Vuforia at PTC.

"We are excited for our M300 Smart Glasses to be fully supported by the Vuforia AR platform," said Paul Travers, CEO and president, Vuzix. "Vuforia will enable us to expand our market opportunities across various enterprise market verticals while also helping us to differentiate the M300 versus the competition."
