Product review one : Vuzix Augmented reality Glasses,
Friday April 29 2011
Augmented reality, otherwise known as AR, is the mixture of computer-generated sights, sounds and data with real world scenes. This fast evolving technology is finding its way into our everyday lives from the “2nd and 8” informational marker on a televised football field and statistical data balloons that follow NASCAR drivers speeding around a racetrack to an animation that pops out of a greeting card of a children’s book.
Until now, these have been simple 2D, third-person perspective AR applications. Now, using Vuzix AR applications and hardware, AR comes to life in 3D, seen from a real-life first-person perspective.
Vuzix, the world leader in video eyewear technology, continues to set the standard of video eyewear products with its latest Wrap™ product line. Now you can look cool while enjoying the big-screen movie experience in your own personal theater – anytime, anywhere. And with a wide range of accessories to choose from, you can customize your Wrap or iWear for a truly unique experience.
The all new Tac-Eye family of displays for hands free access to situational awareness (SA) data and High Definition Video
Today’s battlefield electronic systems provide our soldiers with an overwhelming, yet critical, amount of digital data. The task of displaying this data to the user can be a challenge. Bright sunlight, light discipline, weight and power – all become important factors for your display choice. The Tac-Eye family of display systems efficiently delivers a solution that overcomes these issues.
Commercial / Industrial Applications
The Tac-Eye is designed as a modular system, offering the user a great variety of video and digital inputs. It will work with hand-held or small computers for wearable computing applications or as a hands-free display for video sources.
Some of the applications include:
- Medical: View endoscopic images without taking your eyes off the patient.
- Maintenance: View diagrams, instructions or live images hands-free and heads-up while you are working on equipment and systems.
- Security: View surveillance video on the move without compromising safety and security.
- Test & Measurement: View test output while staying in position.
- Videography: Monitor the camera’s view from anywhere on the set.
- Mobility: View computer information anytime, anywhere to increase workflow and productivity.

Product Review two:
EBIKES IN HAMILTON
Wednesday April 4 2011
E bikes in Hamilton BEWARE Tsunami bike service <<Stay Far away
Tsunamibike Inc. Downtown Hamilton: will be judged for Customer service, repair and costs comparison’s with other Distributors in the Hamilton area.
April 21st I was asked to come back one week later to have any work done on there product.One week later which was this Monday, They said “Come Wednesday” which was today.Tsunamibike Today I went back and they said another week, Very Rude Staff, they do not stand by there work, if you are able to get any at all. They did not Honour my Year Warranty, They should be closed-down.
My Rating for Costumer service 1/2 out of 10.
Products choice 3 out of 10, noisy Gas engines on bikes<<silly, Young useless, lazy staff , Uncaring, Rude owner.
The Monster Bike is a very badly designed; and stapled together in China, rated 3 out of 10 for performance and reliability.The Staff are all from China
and cannot speak English, so NO SERVICE, Tsunamibike must be a front for illegal activity.
Product prices 2 of 10<< every other Ebike supplier in Hamilton is less expensive, and much better. I apologise to the three other people that, purchased the ebikes from this store..
I suggest you find a better Ebike supplier, Tsunamibike is a waste of time and money, w2g Tsunamibike, mess-up downtown business district further.
I will have a list of all ebikes in Hamilton and Dundas area.

Went to visit rick at his shop today, Seems my Monster “Watts” Bike was designed terribly after talking to rick.
Just to remove or replace a back tire you must take bike apart, image below. Wright technolgies and The Watt Monster Bike are Poorly manufactured and the flaws are to many too mention.
I should have my Ebike back by next Thursday.
Below are images of ricks shop
I respect that.
Thursday July 14
Just spoke with Rick on the phone, I was informed the ebike was back together, the battery’s fuse had melted right away, so that was replaced and the bracket to hold the battery also. Without asking Rick he
attached two new pedals, flashing turn signals and cleaned the Bike to a glossy finish, No Charge. After driving the bike for two days, It rides better now compared to when I first purchased the Ebike from Tsunamibike .
It is faster, can go over bumps without the battery jumping all over the place. I would suggest to anyone to visit Rick for any ebike service, supplies and Sales.Total charges $150 <<WONDERFUL
SERVICE : 5 Stars out of 5
PRICES : 5 Stars out of 5
SALES : 5 Stars out of 5
