"Worldwide travel restrictions and quarantine requirements related to COVID-19 continue to help expedite purchasing decisions related to smart glasses. Our M400, combined with remote support applications like Vuzix Remote Assist, Zoom, WebEx Teams, Ubimax Frontline and many others, represents an effective solution to provide business continuity during the new normal. When you can't send a person, you just send Vuzix Smart Glasses."
