A demonstration of the integration of AccuWeather´s weather data in the Vuzix BladeÂ® Smart Glasses will debut in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January.
AccuWeather, the largest and fastest-growing weather media company and global provider of weather-related big data, business and analytics, provides localized weather forecasts to more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.

For example, imagine getting ready for a day of air travel. You put on your Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and check the current forecast of your departure city to see if weather might delay your flight. After landing in your destination, you see the current weather conditions as well as what the upcoming forecast is to help get the most from your trip.
All of this is done without having to pull a smart phone out of your bag, while juggling luggage or reservation documents, making it easy to stay informed on-the-go.
