Vuzix model?

May 31, 2010 at 3:39 AM


I want to buy the Vuzix googles to display my Goblin XNA applications.    Everywhere, it says we need "Vuzix iWear VR920".   Fine, but it seems that this model do not have a camera like the "Vuzix CamAR" model.   If it is so, how can we make Augmented Reality without camera for the "Reality" part?

It seems that VR920 is for virtual reality (no need to have a camera).

And CamAR is for aumented reality (this one has a cam).

So, since Goblin XNA is a library for Augemented Reality, how come we need the VR920 - Virtual Reality model?

Unless this model has a hidden camera?

In advance, thanks!

CamAR is simply a webcam that is suited with VR920, so you need both (or attach a separate webcam in front of VR920 if you want to save the money buying CamAR piece).
