Lucyd: Ergonomic AR Smartglasses

Lucyd AR smartglasses are designed to be comfortable.

With a team of leading scientists and 13 patents, Lucyd seeks to bring augmented reality (AR) to the mainstream by making smartglasses that are ergonomic and appear like regular glasses. With the understanding that the public demands AR devices that are comfortable and inconspicuous, Lucyd has designed their smartglasses to meet these preferences. Lucyd is also minting its own token on the blockchain to build an ecosystem that continues to grow and improve. The smartglasses are slated to be release in 2019.

Essential to building a thriving ecosystem of innovation is the native token, LCD, that will be rewarded to developers of AR apps for the smartglasses, with the amounts rewarded based on user reviews. Users who provide reviews will also be rewarded with LCD, ensuring a continuous feedback loop that improves the technology and user experience. The LCD token will run on top of the Ethereum blockchain, which is decentralized and secure, thus allowing users of the platform to store them with popular Ethereum wallets and trade them at exchanges, including to convert them to fiat currencies.

To make the Lucyd smartglasses look and feel like normal glasses, the computing power of the smartglasses will be done using a smartphone, with the smartglasses acting as a periphery device. The use of smartphones for the raw computing power will keep the smartglasses light and comfortable. The smartglasses will have the wires for transmitting data in the stems, to prevent them from being noticeable and thus awkward to wear. Additionally, the microdisplays on the lenses will be transparent and thus unnoticeable while in public.  These microdisplays will conveniently provide information about objects, people, and landmarks surrounding users, and will also enable users to view their email while taking a stroll.

The crowdsale for Lucyd ends February 28, 2018, during which time investors will be able to buy the LCD token for $0.25. A maximum of 100,000,000 LCD will be created, keeping the supply restricted to benefit token holders. Half of these tokens will be offered to the public during the crowdsale, and the tokens dedicated to the team will be locked for 12 months to safeguard the interests of investors. Investors interested in bringing AR to the mainstream should thus consider this project backed by prominent scientists with ambitious aims.

Arcona: Augmented Reality on Blockchain

Arcona is a virtual reality platform using blockchain.

Among the most ambitious virtual and augmented reality projects powered by the blockchain, Arcona aims to create the most immersive experience possible for consumers, linking the real world with the virtual world. The platform will allow anyone with internet access to experience and participate in a world of unbounded creativity.

The foundation of Arcona is Digital Land that can be bought, sold, and rented by users. Digital Land is bounded by precise measurements and can be modified by owners as they see fit. Users can modify their surroundings using a mobile device, tablet, laptop, or VR headset. The platform will allow users to travel and experience places all from the comfort of their home. With the native token of the platform, Arcona, users can conduct business and earn an income from it.

The Arcona system, unifying the virtual with the real world, will allow a wide range of commercial activities. Users can profit from tourism, real estate, advertising, education, and art, to name just a few possibilities. The open P2P nature of the platform will give users the possibility of expanding their business in ways that were previously not possible. Given that land in dense areas will command high prices that can fluctuate just as in the real world, users will have the potential to profit from selling or renting Digital Land that is in strong demand. Just as in the real world, property and copyrights will be protected, given that ownership is recorded transparently on the blockchain.

The Arcona token is ERC20 compatible and runs on top of the Ethereum protocol. As an ERC20 token, it can be stored in popular Ethereum wallets and traded at exchanges. As a token with value tied to the growth of the platform and that can be traded with ease for fiat and cryptocurrencies, it will function both as a currency and a potential investment.

The team behind Arcona has extensive experience in augmented and virtual reality, having created eight virtual reality parks in six countries while working for PilgrimXXI. In these parks, visitors can experience major historical events and see architectural wonders of the past in all of their splendor. These parks have enthralled visitors and boosted tourism to these cities. Unlike competing virtual reality projects, the Arcona team has proven that they can succeed when met with formidable challenges.

The main crowdsale will take place from April 15, 2018 to May 15, 2018. During this crowdsale, the Arcona token can be bought for 0.0025 ETH. Already, Arcona has collected over 3,000 ETH, showing the project is popular among investors. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts who join the crowdsale will help fund the development of a platform that takes augmented and virtual reality to the next level.
