Augmented Reality Smart Glasses Impress at CES 2014

Augmented Reality Smart Glasses Impress at CES 2014Last night in Las Vegas at the 2014 International CES, Epson America raised the curtain on its second-generation Moverio “smart glasses” with a combination of new features geared to transform how consumers experience games, video entertainment and the world around them.

Sleek and lightweight, the Epson Moverio BT-200 is a binocular display using a miniaturized LCD-based projection lens system and optical light guide in each side of the glasses.

According to details provided to MMW, the Moverio platform’s advanced binocular optical system projects see-through overlays of digital content onto the real-world in the center of the smart glasses’ field of view.

“Enabling a seamless blend of the physical and digital world, the Moverio BT-200 technology platform makes a new world of augmented reality applications possible for consumers as well as commercial enterprises,” Epson says.

The Moverio BT-200 projects a stereoscopic virtual display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 23-degree field of view.  A 360-degree panoramic experience is possible through third-party software that takes advantage of the glasses’ head-tracking features. For optimum viewing privacy, Moverio’s projection system features unique light guide angles which prevent other people from viewing the projected content.

Today, Epson launched a new splash page featuring all the must-know details regarding the new product. To check it out, click here.
