Vufine: Handsfree, Wearable display
As per Goro Kosaka, the CEO of Vufine, the motivation behind this was to bring in a gadget which was affordable, user friendly and efficient. It is primarily a High Definition clip on display and can connect to most gadgets with an HDMI output like tablets, laptops, smart phones, drones etc. Vufine is simple to understand and very user friendly with just one button and two ports. Another issue tackled is the privacy concerns faced by other Smartglasses as it does not need any proprietary applications. It has been found increasingly useful in the workplace too. As Mr Kosaka says, the product value is user generated because Vufine facilitates use instead of dictating it. Everyday applications include watching videos, function as rear view camera for bikes, playing games like Pokemon Go etc. One of the best features is its affordability, unlike many others in the market. Also commendable is the high focus given to the display with a superior resolution- similar to Recon Jet or Google Glass.
