On the hardware end, Vuzix has become the new AR company on everyone's mind. With Google Glass shelved and the Microsoft's Hololens still building up momentum, customers are still waiting for a headset to do for AR what the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have done for virtual reality (VR).
After a successful showing of its M3000 smart glasses at CES 2017, the company is expected to roll out its enterprise smart glass product in summer of 2017. The M3000 is meant to be an AR headset for enterprise and commercial applications, targeted at industrial, medical, supply chain, retail, and help desk applications (i.e. those being created by other suppliers on this list). At the M3000's core is an Intel Atom processor and 64GB of built-in memory. The headset also features a camera for live streaming and recording as well as wireless connectivity capabilities that allow it to interface with Android and iOs devices. It also features head tracking, GPS, as well as voice control and gesture controls (via a touch pad).
