The Best Complement To Your Drone

Found difficulty in screen viewing while flying your drone? What you need is an advanced first-person-view (FPV) flight experience. With a transparent display, you can see the drone’s camera view under strong sunlight while simply keeping your head up.

Basically It Fits Everyone 

Our core objective in the research and development of MAD Gaze Vader  is to make the product customer oriented. We understand that every individual is unique and that the product needs to be varied in terms of measurement to fit every unique self.

As MAD Gaze Vader smart glasses is a binocular viewing device, we have made lateral adjustment of the optics on Vader available to account for interpupillary distance (IPD). A correct IPD is critical to help one self to get a clear vision and at the same time to avoid uncomfortable viewing experience and eye strain. 

Focal lengths of lenses are just as important, too. No matter short-sightedness or long-sightedness, you can get corrective lens for MAD Gaze Vader from your local optical shop.

Extended Battery Life Is Key

We know that some applications are just more power consuming, especially the ones that require the camera, GPS or the Internet to be on. We believe that you may want a longer battery life for better endurance.

Battery capacity of Vader is increased to 1200mAh. Battery life is now extended up to 5 hours under continuous use to fulfill your actual needs and give you a better user experience.

 Our Team and Awards

Risks and challenges

After launching Ares and X5 last year, we have already produced several runs of MAD Gaze smart glasses and have done extensive testing both from hardware and software standpoint, we have successfully delivered the products to our consumers and business clients.

We are using a standard yet stable version of Android on the current MAD Gaze. We are recruiting developers from all over the world to share their next killer app on MAD Store, and our team is also developing different apps for customers to use at the same time.

For the delivery schedule, we will try our best to stick to the original plan. If there is any potential delay, we will let you know immediately to ensure your MAD Gaze will arrive as soon as possible.

The see-through projector is mature and has already been industrialized. All the key components have already come out of production molds. Core technology in MAD Gaze is ready for high volume manufacturing using proven and expert suppliers.

The risks are therefore minimal for producing MAD Gaze in volume to deliver our Kickstarter customers.
