MIAMI, April 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Eyewear, Inc. ("Innovative Eyewear" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LUCY; LUCYW), the developer and retailer of smart eyewear under the Lucyd®, Nautica®, and Eddie Bauer® brands, announces today that it has filed a new patent application entitled SYSTEM, APPARATUS, AND METHOD FOR USING A CHATBOT, US Patent Application number 18/189,547.
The software system covered by the patent application focuses on one or more smart devices, which may include smart glasses, that operate with chatbots such as ChatGPT. The inventive application may provide an efficient and effective tool for obtaining a desired response drawn from one or multiple chatbots. The invention accomplishes this by using an innovative technique for choosing from and prioritizing data that may be drawn simultaneously from a number of different chatbots or AI language models. The invention allows for text, audio, and image data to be provided in response to user queries.
"We believe we are the first smart eyewear company to provide (patent-pending), artificial intelligence voice accessibilty on Bluetooth-enabled eyewear. With our new Lucyd app, we are continuing to make eyewear more flexible and smarter than ever before," says Harrison Gross, CEO of Innovative Eyewear.
The Lucyd app provides audible/spoken output of the popular ChatGPT language model, enabling more natural communication between the user and this powerful AI chatbot. The app can be used with any smartphone or hearable device to enable verbal interaction with ChatGPT, including audio glasses made by Innovative Eyewear.
The company will be showcasing its hardware and software at the eMerge tech conference in Miami, FL April 20th-21st and encourages interested parties to attend.
Lucyd Lyte ChatGPT-enabled smart eyewear can be purchased online, in any prescription at Lucyd.co.
Ironically, March 2023 is the 150th anniversary of the introduction of the QWERTY keyboard and production of the Remington typewriter.
On June 23, 1868, a patent was granted to Christopher Sholes, Carlos Glidden, and Samuel W. Soule for a "Type-Writer" which was eventually developed into the Sholes and Glidden typewriter, the first device that allowed an operator to type substantially faster than a person could write by hand. The patent (U.S. patent # 79,265) was sold to Densmore and Yost, who agreed with E. Remington and Sons (then famous as a manufacturer of sewing machines) to commercialize what was known as the Sholes and Glidden Type-Writer. Remington started production of their first typewriter on March 1, 1873, in Ilion, New York. The Type-Writer introduced the QWERTY, designed by Sholes, et al.
The mechanical QWERTY keyboard and its digital equivalent can be considered a transitional data entry device, whose importance could be supplanted by more natural and ergonomic interfaces. Voice control on wearables is a key example of an extremely efficient method for interfacing with computing devices, that is faster and more ergonomic than typing. With ChatGPT specifically, the new Lucyd app makes it significantly easier to use, because the typical input into ChatGPT is long-form paragraphs of text which is often too cumbersome to type on a mobile device, requiring the user to be on a desktop computer to use ChatGPT effectively. The Lucyd app makes it fully voice-controlled, and therefore mobile friendly for the first time.
