Everysight's Raptor AR smartglasses have entered final development, and
the company has opened registration for its exclusive Test Pilot
AR smartglasses are designed to provide cyclists and triathletes with a
competitive advantage to boost their training, race day
performance, and safely enhance fitness and health.
“Current smartglasses obstruct the rider’s
vision,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, CEO of Everysight. “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
Everysight’s patented BEAM technology gives the Raptor smartglasses an 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
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 can 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.

As Everysight prepares for the Raptor consumer launch,
they are also taking applications for an exclusive team of Test

Pilots will shape the user experience by test-driving and
providing feedback during the final phase of Raptor’s development.
Everyone who applies will also get a spot in line to be the first
to purchase the consumer version when it launches.
