Epson Moverio BT-200 AR glasses keep an eye on things
Whether it's for gaming or just being one of the glassholes, Epson has released a new pair of AR smart glasses.
Epson's latest pair of AR glasses use a miniaturised LCD projection system to beam all the information you want to your eyeballs.
Epson already had a pair of smart glasses, but this newer model adds a few extra bells and whistles, plus a size and weight reduction by 60 per cent. The projected image pops up in the middle section of the lenses, though there are a variety of other lenses within the headset. In terms of resolution, the display delivers 960x540 pixels, while a range of sensors — including an accelerometer and magnetic compass — help power the head motion tracking for gaming purposes.
Grab a series of still images or video using the front-facing camera, or play with any number of AR apps.
The control unit is powered by Android 4.0 and comes with the requisite Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to hook up with the glasses. There is also a textured touchpad on the device which helps to precisely track controls for gaming. You can even watch 3D using the display if you want to. Feed in even more content using the microSD slot in the control unit.
No specific pricing or availability has been announced for Australia yet, but the Moverio glasses will be arriving on our shores.
