With augmented reality (AR) equipment uncomfortable and unsightly for ordinary users, Lucyd aims to create AR smartglasses that look and feel indistinguishable from ordinary glasses. By employing ergonomics along with cutting-edge technology, Lucyd has the potential to bring AR to the mainstream.
In order to make AR smartglasses as comfortable as possible, Lucyd has taken important steps in their design. The circuitry within the smartglasses are in their stems, so as to prevent the electrical components from being visible. The smartglasses also come with a built-in camera for the detection of objects and to capture photos and videos. The LCD microdisplays integrated within the lens have a long battery life and are transparent. To preserve energy and power, the Lucyd smartglasses use the computing power and data of Android and OS devices. The smartglasses turn on and off by folding and unfolding them. These are just some of the features that allow the smartglasses to look and feel like normal glasses.
To build a thriving ecosystem, Lucyd will issue its own token, LCD, that runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain. The platform will reward developers who build apps for the platform LCD based on their usage and reviews by users, and in turn will reward users with LCD for giving their reviews. The rewards for developers and users will ensure that the platform is continually developed to enhance the experience of users. LCD can be bought or sold at cryptocurrency exchanges and can thus be converted to fiat currencies. LCD can also be used to buy smartglasses.
The team behind Lucyd has 13 AR patents and expertise in various fields that include AR, optics, and ergonomics. The patents were developed by researchers at the University of Central Florida. Among the team, including the advisers, are seven PhDs. The Lucyd company is backed by Tekcapital PLC, a leading IP investment company in the UK.
The Lucyd crowdsale to raise funds for further developing and marketing this platform is now taking place and ends February 28, 2018. During the crowdsale, LCD can be bought for $0.25. In total, no more than 100,000,000 LCD will be minted, keeping the supply limited for token holders and investors. The tokens designated for the team will be frozen for a period of one year, thus encouraging the team to focus on long-term success.
