eMagin Corporation, a leader in OLED Micro Displays and at the forefront of the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) revolution, announced today that it will showcase its highly anticipated new products that allow consumers to see in the dark at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 5th to 8th. eMagin will be teaming up with Steve Gonsalves, from SyFy Channel’s hit show, Ghost Hunters. The products will be on display and available for demo at booth #42690 at the Sands Exhibition Area, where Mr. Gonsalves will be available for photos and chatting with attendees.
“I’m always looking for new devices that will advance my efforts in the field of paranormal research,” said Mr. Gonsalves from the Ghost Hunters. “The quality and capabilities of BlazeSpark and BlazeTorch are quite impressive. This is very exciting!”
Dan Cui, Chief Marketing Officer for eMagin’s HMD Group, which created the products, said, “There is currently nothing like BlazeSpark or BlazeTorch out in the consumer market. People will now be able to expand their favorite daytime activities into the night and share their experience through social media in real time.”
eMagin will also sponsor a contest for CES attendees where winners will be able to participate in an exciting night time zipline event held at Flightlinez in Boulder City.
“We are looking forward to hosting eMagin’s Night Zip event during CES,” said Brina Marcus, GM of Flightlinez’s Boulder City venue, just outside of Las Vegas. “We believe that BlazeTorch and BlazeSpark may give us the opportunity to offer our customers a new and exciting night time attraction.”
BlazeSpark will allow consumers to see clear, high-resolution images in the dark by inserting their AndroidTM cellphone in to a revolutionary case that will display what the night vision sensor is seeing. A BlazeSpark app can be downloaded from Google PlayTM, which will allow users to share their experience worldwide, record, chat and live stream content within the BlazeSpark network or to other social media sites.
BlazeTorch focuses on active users and sports enthusiasts. BlazeTorch is a wearable headset that utilizes eMagin’s OLED micro displays providing completely hands-free operation during night time activities.
