Smartglasses on a Decentralized AR Ecosystem
Smartglasses is not a new technology, but running on a decentralized AR (Augmented Reality) ecosystem, that’s a first.
LUCYD, a Singapore-based startup is set to make a revolution on the Smartglasses and the AR industry (AR Industry is projected to reach $133.78Bn USD by 2021) itself by creating a the first blockchain fueled smartglasses and holds 13 patents of the said technology.
The team is made of optics, AR, finance and creative powerhouses from around the world, including five Ph.D. scientists and executives. The team also has Dr. Jannick Rolland, a world-renowned optics expert and the brilliant inventor behind 12 of Lucyd’s 13 smartglass patents.
Pioneering AR (Augmented Reality)
Augmented Reality platforms are moving toward mainstream adoption, and are forecasted to reach US $36.4 billion according to green-light insights (2017 AR industry industry report). Based on a portfolio of patents exclusively licensed from the prominent optics & photonics center at the university of Central Florida, Lucyd is developing next-gen smartglasses that we believe largely overcome the optics and ergonomics issues in current products. Lucyd’s technology potentially enables the following features in wearable AR displays:
- First to miniaturize the optics for a compact, lightweight head-mounted display.
- Full integration of eye tracking in HMDs, allowing for ocular cursor control and real-time optimization of EFV.
- First spatially-aware smartglasses with enhanced object occlusion, so AR objects in the Lens meld smoothly with your real-world environment.
- First freeform optics system allowing for off-axis virtual objects and high-depth interface.
- First integration of binocular, flush HD microdisplays. No protruding elements, low-eye strain & discreet.
- First smartglasses with highly modular controls, including voice control and eye tracking, which can be used to switch on and off the AR experience on demand.
- First smartglasses with low light leakage and high spatial resolution, for solid-seeming AR objects.
- First smartglasses that accommodate prescription lenses.
- First smartglasses with no buttons, switches or wires, for a sleek look.
- Lucyd Lens will charge wirelessly, for enhanced convenience.
LUCYD ROADMAP 2018 – 2019
How to Participate in LUCYD ICO
Before participating in Initial Coin Offering, here’s a few FAQs that will enlighten you about the ICO.
WHAT IS A TOKEN SALE/ICO?</h3 >
It’s like an advanced kickstarter program that uses blockchain tech to outsource a common problem to everyone, so we can find the solution together. Our problem is that we know AR is the future but without ergonomic smart glasses, that future wont happen. We believe that Lucyd Lens is the solution, because it’s going to be built by everybody.
WHAT ARE THE TERMS OF THE LCD TOKEN SALE?</h3 >
Lucyd is releasing 50 mln LCD tokens in the total sale. The regular sale LCD token will be valued at $.25 USD=1 LCD and starts Oct 31st or when the pre-sale pool of 25 million LCD is sold out.
The regular sale will last until February 28th, 2018.
WHY A TOKEN SALE (AKA ICO) AND NOT TRADITIONAL FUNDRAISING?</h3 >
Due to the breakneck pace of the AR space, Lucyd wants to acquire community funding much faster than traditional methods. A token sale is like a kickstarter built on blockchain, that lets you seek global support in an extremely rapid time frame. Since Lucyd is offering a solution to the pressing AR question, we think people will want to join our mission all over the world. After the LCD token sale, LCD itself can be traded on coin exchanges, and used for P2P transactions with other Lens users, in addition to being able to be “cashed out.”
IS LCD A SECURITY OR A STOCK?</h3 >
The LCD token isn’t a security, it is a utility token, more like store credit. Lucyd is founded in Singapore, and we believe it is fully compliant with financial and commercial regulation there. For more about Lucyd legal, read the whitepaper.
WHY DOES LUCYD NEED A BLOCKCHAIN?</h3 >
Blockchain technology will let anyone easily develop and distribute content on our platform. The whole thing is built on the LCD token to easily facilitate P2P transactions in the glasses themselves, forgoing dependence on traditional financial systems, while also organically motivating community engagement with LCD rewards. We believe the Blockchain will enable Lucyd to grow exponentially!
