Vuzix WRAP 920AR augmented reality glasses now shipping

If you are a fan of augmented reality gear, you may recall the Vuzix augmented reality glasses called the Wrap 920AR. We first spied the glasses back in January and then we spent a bit of hands on time with the 920AR at CES. If you liked the glasses and wanted a set for yourself the good news is that the things are finally shipping.

Vuzix (PDF) has announced that the glasses are shipping, but the price isn’t for the faint of heart. Brace yourself for this, the things will sell for $1,995 and will be bundled with the Vuzix MAXimum3D software, which is a plug-in for Autodesk 3ds Max design software.

The price for UK fans will be £1499.00 / €1699.00 inc VAT. The things are expensive for sure, but they are cool. The software plug-in will allow a designer or architect to export their designs so that they appear in the real world when wearing the 920AR glasses. I guess at the pro level, if the things help you sell a single large project; they are well worth the money.
