"Versatile" is a smart glass developed by leveraging our lens development capabilities based on our specialized optical performance and our frame design capabilities to maximize that performance.

"Versatile" is a smart glass developed by leveraging our lens development capabilities based on our specialized optical performance and our frame design capabilities to maximize that performance.

The device is designed to be comfortable to wear, with a weight and balance that do not burden the wearer for long periods of time, and enables "safe" and "efficient" hands-free communication of information, such as work instructions in the field and subtitling in entertainment.

The "optical unit" is a detachable type with a "hologram light guide plate display" that does not obstruct vision due to its high brightness and high transmittance, and a "frame" that holds the "optical unit" and provides an excellent wearing feeling due to its light weight and high balance, and a separate "application(*)" is used in combination. The "frame" holds the "optical unit" and is lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable to wear.
*) In addition to freely using application software developed by the customer, it is also possible to link it with existing systems as part of the overall system.

Tips on choosing SMART GLASSES - Versatile -

Points for selection
Protective Glasses Type
Ideal for use at manufacturing sites where it is mandatory to wear protective goggles.
Since the optical unit is mounted inside the protective glasses, it can be used safely even in hard workplaces where flying debris and dust are flying around.
Overglass type that can be worn over your own glasses.

Lightweight frame type
Lightweight, well-balanced frames that do not shift.
Designed to minimize stress even after long hours of use, with simple specifications that can be used in all kinds of situations.
Eyeglass type that can be worn over your own eyeglasses.

Optical Unit
Equipped with a "hologram light-guide plate display" with high brightness and high transmittance that does not obstruct vision.
The one-touch detachable optical unit is common to all frames and is attached by inserting it into the frame.
Power is supplied by a smartphone or external power supply.

An SDK for Android is provided, allowing customers to freely use applications they have developed.
*Except for some products, customers are required to prepare their own applications.

Based on our core technology of controlling light, which we have been accumulating for over 100 years since our foundation, we have been developing industrial safety eyewear, including laser safety glasses, and various types of protective equipment.

Also, using our filter technology built up over 30 years, we have been pioneering the industry by developing dust masks and powered air-purifying respirators and continue to present new products to the market.

Moving forward, it is Yamamoto Kogaku's hope to support not only the bodily safety of workers but all aspects of people's lifestyles for safer, more comfortable living environments.

  • Light control technology
    Light control technology
    At worksites with welding, laser processing, and other such jobs, intense, yet invisible light like UV rays and infrared rays are emitted from high-output equipment in high amounts, harming workers' eyes. Yamamoto Kogaku products absorb, reflect, permeate, and polarize particular light and wavelengths for optional and various aspects of control, in turn offering workers safety and heightened performance.
  • Coating technology
    Coating technology
    Lens coating is a deciding factor in glasses functionality including work efficiency and vision safety. From the addition of fundamental anti-fogging and stain resistance abilities in lenses to offering reflection rates, wavelength attributes, and other light-related abilities, a variety of possibilities unfold relating to the environment of use and function requirements.
  • Safety structure design
    Safety structure design
    Yamamoto Kogaku is the only manufacturer in Japan to consolidate in-house lens development grounded in specialized optical function and frame design based on ergonomics showcasing the full extent of the lens' capabilities as well as the consequent production and sale.
    We offer safety products in line with numerous standards, including JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards), ANSI (American National Standards Institute), EN (Europäische Norm, or European Standard), and CE (Conformité Européenne, or European Conformity) marking.
  • Filter technology
    Filter technology
    Our high-performance filter technology, providing high filtration rate and low ventilation resistance, is employed in numerous products, such as powered air-purifying respirator PAPR, dust masks with respiratory assist devices, and disposable dust masks, which passed the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's type certification (National Assay) and allows for a clear field of vision and safe breathing conditions for workers.
