Vuzix Corp. has developed hands-free thermal imaging smart glasses that could be used by frontline workers to monitor body temperatures at a distance, improving the real-time diagnosis of illnesses such as the coronavirus.

Working with Librestream, an augmented reality vendor, Vuzix’s M400 smart glasses will be integrated with Librestream’s Onsight Cube platform including an industrial wearable camera, to bring hands-free collaboration and thermal imaging to nearly any environment.

The Onsight Cube pairs with the M400 glasses to display a real-time thermal video feed in the heads-up display. Workers can then share these visuals with global medical experts that can remotely view and control the thermal output. Users can adjust lighting, zoom and capture HD video and thermal images for first responders and medical staff dealing with real-time diagnostic information. Teams can also capture and securely store images and recordings or share in collaboration sessions.
