The Pairasight Project creates new eyeglasses tech in Tech Brewery

The Pairasight Project isn't interested in enabling people to walk in each others' shoes. It wants them to experience life by looking through their eyes.

The Ann Arbor-based start-up which calls the Tech Brewery home is developing eye glasses equipped with a mini computer that can stream the user's perspective in real time to anyone with Internet access.

"It enables users to share their world from a first-person point of view in real time with hands-free technology," says Anthony Blanco, general manager of The Pairasight Project.

The 3-year-old company is presently developing the foundation for the technology and building out the back end of its software. Blanco expects to bring the first public version to market early next year with a focus on business-to-business commercialization.

"This will allow businesses to enhance existing revenue streams and create new ones," Blanco says.

The Pairasight Project currently employs six people and a couple of independent contractors. It has hired three people over the last six months, mostly to fill out its executive team. The firm has made it this far thanks to seed funding from its parent company, Pleasant Lake-based Peak Manufacturing.
