Last 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.
