Dental professionals can use 3D stereoscopic imaging and AR to make sure you’re brushing your teeth every day.
The company NuEyes has been a big player in the augmented reality industry with their 5G-enabled AR glasses, designed to provide users with an incredible visual representation of virtual data used for enterprise, medical, and gaming.
Up next for the company is a revolutionary new headset called NuLoupes, a device that updates the traditional loupes headset that you’ve seen every single time you’ve been to the dentist, and will change the medical and dental industry moving forward.
Announced today during the Immersive Tech Summit, NuLoupes are designed to meet the needs of both patients and healthcare professionals and utilize a proprietary camera system that’s capable of delivering sub-millimeter accuracy using 48-megapixel cameras.
They are also equipped with 3D stereoscopic imaging and continuous magnification for enhanced depth perception, which will help all medical professionals during exams.
Along with being packed with cutting-edge technology, the NuLoupes are lightweight and have an ergonomic design that’s ideal for all-day use.
NuEyes’s NuLoupes are designed to provide users with a smooth and easy-to-use continuous magnification solution from 1x – 10x allowing for up close detailed imagery of what the user is looking at.

- App Store for Medical/Dental AR Solutions
NuLoupes was developed with the help of surgeons who have experience with traditional loupes. Through a pivoting system, the headset can be adjusted up to 90 degrees downward for a more comfortable operating position reducing fatigue and neck and back pain that many in the medical field have to endure.
“NuEyes digital operative NuLoupes AR glasses will revolutionize surgical visualization and disrupt the traditional analog market,” said Dr. Kruger, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon. “In my opinion, NuLoupes has the potential to be as big, if not bigger, a change to the surgical experience than the robot,” he added.
There are a number of medical lanes that would benefit from NuLoupes such as most pediatric and cardiothoracic surgeons. Neurosurgeons, general surgeons, gynecologists, and orthopedic surgeons could use these. There are also potential non-medical usages for jewelers, card collectors, gemology, watchmaking, and any type of work that requires examining small details.
As of right now, NuEyes NuLoupes won’t be available until later this year; sometime in Q3/Q4. However, you can learn more about the AR device here on the NuEyes website.
