In a world where sport digitalization is becoming more and more relevant
with an increasing use of sensors, GPS trackers and new dedicated apps,
sports glasses represent the perfect way to view information and
performance. Many have tried to provide a solution to this challenge,
but the results have not been up to the public expectations so far: too
conspicuous, too cumbersome and too heavy products with a poor battery
ActiveLook is the first technological ingredient that transforms sports
glasses into perfect visors. Lightweight, compact and based on
Bluethooth® technology, it can be easily integrated into a pair of
regular sports glasses instantly displaying information and performance.
The system is made of three integrated elements. At its heart is a
miniaturized, lightweight and powerful OLED module. Integrated into the
glasses’ nose bridge, it displays data on the lenses with ultra high
brightness and very low power consumption. The module is combined with a
patented technology that makes the glasses’ lenses “Active”.
A dedicated software allows the ActiveLook glasses to easily pair via
Bluetooth® with smartphones, smartwatches and other devices, to display
the most popular sports apps.
The very strength of ActiveLook lies in the simplicity of the solution
and in the flexibility of an open platform that raise new and exciting
prospects for an increasing number of applications for multiple user
segments: endurance sports, scuba diving, skiing, sailing, motorbiking
and much more. This technology is experiencing a growing demand also in
the field of industrial applications: from logistics to delivery
services and manufacturing.
Designed and produced by MICROOLED, ActiveLook offers cutting edge
optical performance thanks to a worldwide leadership in production of
the Near Eye Display.
