LAS VEGAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Taiwan-based Argus Vision today announced a strategic partnership with PogoTec to manufacture a new line of sun wear equipped with the PogoTrack™ wearable technology platform.
“PogoCam is truly a product for everyone”
Eyewear with PogoTrack is designed to serve as a universal platform for a wide range of future electronic wearable devices. Unveiled for the first time at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, the first such device is PogoCam™, the world’s smallest wearable camera that attaches to fashionable eyewear. Future wearables for the platform may include an alertness monitor to prevent drivers from falling asleep and a UV meter to prevent sunburn by alerting users when exposed to damaging rays.
Argus Vision is a world-class designer and manufacturer of advanced sun wear. Based in Taiwan with additional facilities in Hong Kong and Xiaman, China, Argus Vision specializes in lightweight, sophisticated wrap design frames and impact-resistant lenses with vacuum deposited lens coatings that block harmful ultraviolet light.
The new line of Argus Vision sunglasses with PogoTrack are designed to be rugged, lightweight, comfortable and will be available in a variety of fashionable colors. The wrap design frames of this line provide superior shielding of the eyes from sunlight, enhancing outdoor activities while providing users with the ability to capture images with PogoCam, which can be easily attached to the track, slid back on the track when not in use, or removed to protect the privacy of others.
“Argus Vision has always been on the leading edge in bringing technology and advanced capabilities to non-prescription sun wear,” said an Argus spokesperson. “We’re proud to be among the first to manufacture sun wear for PogoCam and look forward to future wearable technologies on this platform that will further enhance the user experience.”
“PogoCam is truly a product for everyone,” said Ron Blum, founder, president and CEO of PogoTec. “With Argus Vision’s full line of sun wear with PogoTrack, PogoCam is now even more accessible to non-prescription consumers who lead an active lifestyle and prefer a wrap style of fashionable eyewear.”
PogoCam was designed for the mass market and is easy to use. It comes equipped with a five megapixel sensor providing quality photos or video comparable to a smartphone. PogoCam is capable of capturing in excess of what a typical user would take per day. PogoCam can capture and store 100 still photographs or up to two minutes of 720p HD video at 30 frames/second with full audio (12: 10-second clips) before having to be downloaded and charged. The camera is activated by pressing a single button and images are uploaded to a mobile device. PogoCam’s camera function is focus free with auto-white balance making it easy for the user to capture high quality images and video. PogoCam can be recharged in approximately 30 minutes using a compact Smart Case that easily fits in your pocket. It also permits images and video to be downloaded from PogoCam to the internal memory of the Smart Case and wirelessly to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The camera is resistant to water and perspiration and recharges in approximately 30 minutes. PogoCam is designed to attach magnetically to frames having PogoTrack technology. While attached, PogoCam can be moved along the length of the track – allowing the user to bring it forward only when in use. The camera can be attached and removed easily with one hand without removing the frames, allowing it to be stored in a pocket or purse when not recording images.
