CES 2014: Epson's Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses deliver Android apps in augmented reality

1:47 /

Originally released in 2011, the Epson Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses have been redesigned for consumer use and are ready for their debut at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein at CES 2014, and I'm wearing the Epson Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses. There are a lot of smart glasses in display technology here at the show. These are gonna be available in March, and they're available for preorder now for $699. What do they do? Well, you're actually project in a quarter HD display right over here, and it is Android. So, it's Android 4.0 via this simple micro console. That's-- we got a little touchpad here that I can activate and use to scroll around the Android screen. So, you could play movies, you could play games. There are many reality games that are already in development, including one by NAMCO Bandai where you can look around and you can treat things out the sky or move. It displays 3D or 2D, and it also has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct, so you can connect this potentially in the future to get things streaming into the device, you can also stream from the internet and get content that way. The BT-200s can fit over regular eyes without glasses or fit over glasses with an adjustable clip. And there is head tracking as well, via a nine-axis-- motion tracker, plus it's got a gyroscope and accelerometer in there. So, it can track motion really, really well. It has a microSD card slot as well, so you can store things on it. You just hold that in your hand. And it's meant for consumers, it's also meant for a potentially some business and small enterprise development. And there are the apps being developed in that regard. You could use this as entertainment, you could use this as augmented reality glasses-- a little bit of both. And it's one of many different types of wearable tech here at CES 2014. I'm Scott Stein, and that's a look at the Epson Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses here.
