2013 - mirama prototype
In time for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2013 we completed the first Mirama (at that time called Viking) prototype after only 6 months of development. The first prototype was assembled with off-the-shelf products and only the white casing was custom made. Due to lack of driver support for Mirama OS and proprietary drivers the demo applications was running on Linux, emulating the Mirama experience.
The incredible response from visitors at MWC motivated us to continue our plan and start working on the second prototype.
- Vuzix STAR1200XL(D) binocular display.
- PMD Camboard Nano ToF sensor.
- USB webcamera.
- Intel Core i5 laptop.
- Linux (lubuntu).
2014 - mirama prototype 2
In time for Mobile World Congress the following year we completed Mirama prototype 2. The laptop powering Mirama has remained the same and also the display from Vuzix, but the rest had changed dramatically from the first prototype. Mirama was now running gesture recognition with native support for Mirama OS and with the much more mature SDK we were able to show several demo applications which were developed during a short time before the exhibition. With custom made sensor module for gestures and high performance gesture engine we can provide the best gesture experience in the world. The response from the people who experienced Mirama was incredible. Although it is still big and heavy we could get confirmation that we are on the right track. All we have to do is make it smaller and lighter.
2014 - mirama prototype 3
In late 2014 we replaced our custom made ToF camera with a new model that has lower energy consumption. Other than this and a new design frame, prototype 3 is very similar to prototype 2.
2015 - mirama prototype 4
For prototype 4 we've done some major upgrades to the computer and the software. This is the first prototype with a custom made computer.

2017 - mirama one
Mirama One will be our first Mirama product made for a larger, more general customer base. The battery and the computation unit will be located in a separate pocket size unit connected to the glasses by cable. By putting battery and electronics in a separate unit we can reduce the size and weight of the glasses, making them comfortable to wear all day. Compared to the early Mirama prototypes, Mirama One will use a completely different display technology which will enable the creation of smartglasses that is not much different in size and weight than a normal pair of glasses.

202x - mirama unity
Mirama unity is our holy grail. The optimal design of gesture controlled smartglasses. To make a product that can replace the smartphone and that any consumer will adopt it has to be one unit, without cables and light weight. To be able to realize this we need some considerate progress in especially battery technology but also display and infrared sensor technology.
