The German manufacturer of optical systems, Carl Zeiss AG is proudly exhibiting its hi-tech glasses called Cinemizer OLED 3D Multimedia Video Glasses in its booth at the ongoing trade fair CeBIT. At the exhibition Carl Zeiss has its presence at Booth A20 in Hall 15.

Cinemizer 3D Glass is very different from the much anticipated Google Glass. While Google Glass focuses on day-to-day smartphone activities, Cinemizer only emphasizes on multimedia 3D view like virtual reality.
At the exhibition, Cinemizer kept there, takes you to a virtual 3D tour of five holiday resorts. Once you put on the glasses, you experience the detailed HD view to the extent that you feel like you are really there and watching all these. Cinemizer weighs 80 grams, so is easy on face. It can be connected to iPhone, tablet or games console and can be a great companion during flight and travels. The hi-tech gadget is priced at EUR €649 (approximately USD $850).
Carl Zeiss expects that the product will be used by travel agencies to take their clients to virtual tour of a destination before they make their mind to actually go there. It has partnered with Moving-Pictures to create interactive 3D virtual tours of specific destinations.
Wolfgang Sailer, CEO of Moving-Pictures said :
360° panoramas in the travel industry will help to meet expectations and to build trust with customers. Everyone can know in advance exactly what to expect and book their travel and accommodation with full confidence.
Carl Zeiss is also working on a high-tech security gadget called Quadrocopter which includes a remote camera to inspect places hard to reach.
