Cosmo Connected eyewear launches safe urban navigation with ActiveLook® Technology


ActiveLook® is proud to announce its partnership with Cosmo Connected, the French developer of connected urban micro-mobility safety solutions. Developed by MICROOLED, ActiveLook® offers a miniaturized and invisible augmented reality device that displays navigation information via a Head-up display.

How does it work?
Eyewear equipped with ActiveLook® technology contains an embedded and invisible microdisplay that, depending on the sport concerned, shows route, speed and heart rate data without obstructing the wearer’s view of the horizon. The heart of the ActiveLook® module is based on a monochrome AMOLED display with 304 x 256 pixels resolution consuming less than 1 milliwatt; 3times less energy than the most advanced of its competitors. With a battery life of more than 12 hours, and weighing just 6g, ActiveLook® provides a readable display regardless of ambient light conditions. The ActiveLook® device connects via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to a smartphone, watch and to some more specific sensors (heart rate sensor, power sensor, etc.).

CosmoVision eyewear: a partnership between Cosmo Connected and ActiveLook®
As part of its forward development path, ActiveLook® is now looking to the world of sport and urban micro-mobility to meet the daily needs of travel and sport. In this context, mixed reality that delivers navigation and physical performance data considerably improves the safety margin of wearers. Since 2000, screens have become part of our daily activities lives and our lives increasingly depend on them. In developing a new product category of connected eyewear,
ActiveLook® is offering its users the opportunity to follow their route safely with no need to look at their smartphone.

ActiveLook® Founder Eric Marcellin-Dibon says: “Mass adoption of AR relies on discrete integration. Consumers aren’t prepared to put on superhero helmets, but they definitely do want eyewear that helps them to see and do their activity better. We believe that ActiveLook® is the inevitable technological evolution of the eyewear that has been making our lives easier for centuries”.

Cosmo Vision connected eyewear will be available for pre-order at €489 from 18 October via the Cosmo Connected website, and previewed in the Alain Afflelou retail network starting early in December.
