The Vuzix M300XL and M300 are monocular Android-based wearable computer. These are designed to allow the wearer to quickly and easily leverage specialized Android based applications to access critical information relevant to their workflows, in order to allow them to be more efficient with the task at hand, while simultaneously reducing errors in the process.

The M300XL and M300 contain many of the capabilities as a standard Android smartphone, in an unobtrusive head-mounted form factor. See below for a full list of hardware and interaction capabilities of the device:

  • nHD resolution full-color display

  • Dual-core Intel Atom processor

  • 2GB system RAM

  • 64GB internal flash storage

  • Camera capable of up to 10MP stills and 1080p video with auto-focus and image stabilization

  • Orientation sensors (gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer)

  • Inner/outer proximity sensors

  • Outward facing Ambient Light Sensor

  • User-facing speaker

  • Dual noise-cancelling microphones

  • 4 standard Android control buttons

  • 2-axis touchpad

  • Voice control

The primary difference between the M300XL and M300 is the battery connection. The M300XL uses a standard USB Micro-B connector to the battery. The M300 uses a proprietary battery connection which may be replaced with an adapter to connect USB Micro-B.

The M300XL also includes an updated camera that improves auto-focus time, and supports slightly higher video frame rates. These rates are documented in the Camera Knowledge Base

From a developer point-of-view, the M300XL and M300 may be treated identically.
