An affordable alternative to Google Glasses


Vufine, Inc. has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of bring their easy-to-use, wearable display to the masses. Unlike other smart glass technology, Vufine is a wearable display, not a computer, which attaches to any pair of glasses by using a magnetic docking station. Vufine plugs in to a wide variety of devices with a special, thin HDMI cable. Vufine is an extension of user technology, not a replacement — allowing consumers to enjoy the functionality of their favorite technology in a new way.

Vufine approach is that technology is smart enough already - consumers just need a new, affordable way to engage with it.

“We created Vufine with simplicity in mind. We didn’t want to add another user interface that you need to adapt to,” said Vufine founder and CEO Goro Kosaka. “Vufine makes viewing your existing devices' data much more convenient.”

The full Vufine package will include one Vufine, one pair of non-prescription glasses, one docking station, one custom soft HDMI cable and one USB charging cable.

Vufine’s Kickstarter campaign will run for 30 days. Early backers can receive a Vufine for just $99, a 30% reduction of the planned retail price. Backers can expect to receive their units in November 2015. Vufine - Kickstarter page for more information.


Based in Sunnyvale, California, Vufine is run by a small, talented group of likeminded individuals capable of rapidly transitioning between ideation and implementation. They are well versed in the dexterity and tenacity required of any successful startup. For more information, visit
