The Vuzix developer community can now find a demo of Ari™ in the Vuzix app store, along with more information about how to gain access to the gesture SDK and how to easily integrate Ari™ gesture recognition into their own M100 Smart Glasses applications.

"Gesture recognition is going to be one of the major user interfaces for smart glasses and ONtheGO Platforms' Ari™ is the leading solution in the space. We are very excited about the addition of Ari™ to the Vuzix app store and to be making it available to the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses community," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
