- Vuzix (VUZI +4.2%) shares spike after the company announces "a major optical breakthrough that will dramatically improve glasses-based wearable technology."
- Developed jointly with Nokia, Waveguide optics use a 1.4mm "window" similar to a fiber optic with a tiny input pupil which is expanded using a hologram.
