Last week, VITURE One was named one of TIME's Best Inventions of 2022 (and the only one named in the consumer AR & VR category, a great honor!).
Each year, TIME solicits nominations from its editors and correspondents around the world and analyzes new devices, systems, and products from innovators across industries (with a particular interest in growing fields like XR). Contenders are evaluated and winners are chosen based on four key factors: originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.
According to TIME, “The result is a list of 200 groundbreaking inventions (and 50 special mention inventions) — that are changing how we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible.”
VITURE One is among that prestigious list of 200. But what stood out that made TIME take notice of our efforts? In short: patented inventions, designs, and functions that set VITURE One apart from the devices that came before it.
The days of clunky headsets or craning your neck to play games or watch videos on handhelds are over. From their signature aesthetic to their folding hinges, the VITURE One XR Glasses feature a combined total of 10+ patented inventions and innovations that won them recognition as one of the most exciting new developments in the AR & VR category.
Of these, the most important to note is VITURE One’s tint-changing electrochromic films, a VITURE invention that makes our XR Glasses the first device of their kind. These films make several of VITURE One XR Glasses’ other patents and functions possible, including our signature Ambient & Immersive viewing modes and picture-in-picture display.
Other patented features responsible for VITURE One’s immersive experience include:
VITURE One’s innovative Neckband is the perfect pairing for the XR Glasses, giving access to all your favorite streaming services and game platforms in a sleek and easy-to-use interface while keeping your phone or other devices free for other tasks.
Including its patented appearance, the Neckband boasts numerous new inventions of its own, including:
Finally, though it may seem to be a deceptively simple device, VITURE holds another few patents for VITURE One’s Mobile Dock, such as for its sleek casing (designed to attach to the Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck) and for its function, which brings full HDMI-compatibility to the VITURE One ecosystem and provides 6 to 8 hours of additional battery life to devices thanks to its massive 13,000 mAH power bank.
Together with the XR Glasses and Neckband, the Mobile Dock fully rounds out the VITURE One ecosystem.
VITURE One is bringing many new things to the fields of wearable technology, mobile entertainment, and the realms of tech-altered and tech-enhanced reality.
“We are so proud to have VITURE One recognized as one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022,” said David, VITURE’s CEO. “With portable gaming and entertainment becoming more prevalent than ever, we’re pleased to bring the first stylish XR solution to the market that can handle streaming and AAA gaming on the go.”
We’re honored to be on a list alongside so many great inventions changing the way we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible. Thank you TIME for recognizing our efforts and the change we're working for, and thank you, reader, for your support and patience in waiting for VITURE One’s arrival. Once it’s yours, your world will never be the same again.
