The renowned optics manufacturer Swarovski Optik has unveiled the AX Visio, the world’s first pair of smart binoculars. Beyond the conventional scope of optics, this groundbreaking binocular integrates artificial intelligence to revolutionize animal observation, introducing a new dimension to wildlife enthusiasts and beginners alike.
AX Visio Overview
Smart Technology X Optics
The AX Visio has a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) dedicated to rapid and reliable image recognition. This groundbreaking feature allows users to identify a diverse range of animal species, catering not only to ornithologists but also to those fascinated by creatures like squirrels and many more. The ability to distinguish between bird species proves especially valuable for novices exploring the wonders of the natural world.
With 10x magnification and a 32-millimeter objective lens, the AX Visio ensures a comprehensive field of view, spanning 112 meters per 1000 meters. Furthermore, the built-in image recognition feature, powered by the NPU, is complemented by a camera sensor capable of capturing high-resolution photos at 4208 x 3120 pixels (13 MP). While videos are limited to Full HD resolution, it integrates seamlessly with a smartphone app for easy image management and uploading.
Connectivity and Live Observations
The Live View function allows users to share their wildlife observations in real-time, increasing the communal aspect of nature exploration. In addition, AX Visio’s smartphone app facilitates effortless image transfer and management, ensuring users can relive and share their experiences.
