— Harrison Gross, CEO of Lucyd

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 26, 2020 / -- Lucyd, the developer of smartglasses and a global eShop for advanced eyewear, announces today that it has filed a new patent to greatly expand voice accessibility of mobile devices. The patent covers features of the upcoming Vyrb™ mobile app, which introduces several novel methods for the user to control their mobile device with their voice. The app will improve the utility of Lucyd Bluetooth glasses, while also being useful with a smartphone alone.

The main functions of the app as covered in the patent increase the flexibility and functionality of device-native voice assistants such as Siri®. Additionally, the patent covers several software features for making existing social media platforms and messaging services more voice-accessible.

With the number of pedestrian fatalities due to smartphones increasing¹, new studies showing a positive correlation between reduced screen time and happiness², and the precipitous rise in voice assistant use³, the Vyrb app has the potential to have a truly beneficial impact on smartphone users, by allowing them to do more with their voice than ever before. Furthermore, the app can greatly improve accessibility for users with visual or manual difficulties, because it opens the door to an unlimited number of voice-activated smartphone functions.

Harrison Gross, CEO of Lucyd, said "We are thrilled to announce our development of Vyrb, an app that can truly improve the way we access and share information. The voice is the most natural medium we have to interface with others and our devices, and we believe Vyrb will be a real improvement to voice assistants, adding tremendous value to the billions of them already in use. Users will be able activate a world of smartphone actions with their voice, including social media posting, with Vyrb's intuitive user experience."

Lucyd rests in the middle of the growing online eyewear, "hearables" (wireless listening devices) and voice assistant markets, and is aiming to bring innovative solutions to all three. The Vyrb beta is targeted for a December 2020 release. Lucyd's current model of Bluetooth eyewear, Loud 2020, is available now on the Lucyd eShop with over 20 custom lens options.
