Vuzix will develop and deliver in succession, waveguide based optical systems with full custom microLED projection engines, and then ultimately production units. 


In 2021, Vuzix launched its own microLED display engines, based on monochrome microdisplays provided by JBD. In January 2022, Vuzix launched the Shield enterprise AR smart glasses, which utilize microLED microdisplays, and in 2024 the company launches online sales of the Shield Smart Safety Glasses.
