It seems cool right? Yes, it is, with the Maximus prototype, with it’s top-down design, you will be able to wear them with your normal prescription glasses. With an immersive 55-degree FoV, you will have an amazing AR experience, it’s also the best AR experience developed by Lumus up to this date.While the Sleek focuses more on the style and design, the Maximus prototype will be a great choice for gamers and youtubers!$

 

The Verge confirms that the Sleek is made for being “descreet, natural-looking design” and that it has smallar field of view even though it looks more or less like a pair of glasses.

We don’t actually know the partners of Lumus in details but some them are some of the augmented reality companies such as Atheer, Daqri and warehouse company Knapp.

Moreover, we know that the product was demonstrated at CES 2017.
