Everysight, an augmented reality (AR) company, announces its Raptor AR smart glasses enters final development and registration for its exclusive Test Pilot Program launches. Raptor AR smart glasses provide cyclists and triathletes with a competitive advantage to boost their training, improve their race day performance, and safely enhance their fitness and health.

“Current smartglasses obstruct the rider’s vision.  The Raptor provides riders with a true augmented reality experience by floating information crisply and directly before the eye without blocking an athlete’s vision, meaning they can safely access and analyze vital information on-the- go and maximize their performance,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, CEO of Everysight.

Everysight’s patented BEAM technology gives the Raptor smartglasses a true AR experience using a transparent see-through display that overlays sharp, high-resolution information into the user’s line of sight. The information appears as a projection out in front of the user rather than delivering information with an object or element located around the eye area that obscures the rider’s vision, like other competitive products. The on-lens projection displays real-time information such as turn-by- turn navigation, time, distance, speed, heart rate, cadence and power, while reducing eyestrain and keeping a rider’s vision clear.

Riders may choose to use a controller located on their handlebars, voice command or a simple swipe and touch pad located on the temples of the Raptor to control functions including maps, volume, brightness, communication and more. A look-and- shoot camera captures high definition video that can be uploaded and analyzed post-ride. Videos can also be shared with friends and followers through any social media channel.

The Raptor pairs with external sensors to capture additional data. All captured information (heart rate, cadence, speed, power, etc.) uploads to Raptor’s companion app (Android and iOS), and can be shared through social media channels or synced to popular third-party fitness and cycling apps.
