Motorola Solutions invests in smart glass maker Recon Instruments

Recon Instruments, which makes smart glasses / head-up displays for sports, has managed to raise cash from Motorola Solutions Venture Capital. This is not the part of the company that makes phones and thus won’t become part of Lenovo.

Recon is a pioneer in wearable computing and Heads-up Display technology, and the new cash will help the company “accelerate product development” and to ramp up global marketing and distribution.

“Our products are designed to deliver contextual visual information, instantly and hands-free, in the most demanding environments” said Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments. “As we extend our scalable smartglasses platform into industrial and public safety markets, we can leverage Motorola Solutions’ strength. Motorola Solutions is a global leader in ruggedized communication devices and data services, designed to perform in the most high-stress, high-focus situations imaginable, so the synergy is clear and powerful.”

Hear that? With the help of Motorola Solutions, Recon hopes to enter other industries. They don’t seem much interested in consumers and would rather go for enterprise customers…

    Microsoft should also be putting money in smart glasses… if it wants to stay relevant, that is.
