Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
LASTER Technologies, creator of the SeeThru Augmented Reality (AR) eyewear, and geo-location expert Eco&Logic announced the development of an AR app that will allow motorcyclists to, for the first time, enjoy genuine augmented reality capabilities that will increase safety and efficiency of their travels on the road and off.

Weve captured the excitement of augmented reality and combined it with the real world needs of the road to create the motorcyclists ultimate riding experience, said Zile Liu, CEO and founder of LASTER Technologies. With Ecos geo-local expertise and SeeThru eyewear we can deliver on the promise of travel thats more safe, informative and fun. Its no longer about getting from point A to point B. Its delivering the experience of a lifetime and deep information every time you get on your bike.
LASTER Technologies SeeThru eyewear provides the only genuine Augmented Reality wireless eyewear on the market, so wearers see the real world through their own eyes rather than through the lens of a camera. AR content is displayed via SeeThru, within the wearers natural field of vision, allowing them to experience AR content unadulterated by a camera. A video of the app is available.
Providing a larger field of view and higher quality images than other glass products, SeeThru also displays data in front of the vieweravoiding the awkward looking up and to the right that other glasses require. This allows for a higher quality viewing experience that not only enhances visibility, but makes for safer driving.
LASTER SeeThru uses GPS location information coupled with accurate, built-in sensors (gyroscopes, accelerometer and a compass) to detect orientation and position determining exactly where the wearer is and in which direction they are looking. And LASTER SeeThru does all of this without a socially invasive camera, ensuring privacy for the rider and others around them.
The GPS app will be available in the summer of 2014 via the LASTER website (http://www.laster.fr)
SeeThru glasses can be acquired for as little as $349. The Kickstarter page can be found at http://www.laster.fr/kickstarter. A developer SDK is available immediately by going to the LASTER website at http://www.laster.fr/sdk
