Epson Moverio BT-200 AR Smart Glasses available for less than half of Google’s Glass
Epson has started shipment of their Moverio BT-200 from today. Epson Moverio BT-200 is available for US$699.99 – less than half of Google’s Glass.The Epson BT-200 boasts 2x the virtual screen size, at a remarkably affordable price. These lightweight glasses work out-of-the-box with Bluetooth and other technology, plus most Android apps. With a front-facing camera and motion tracker, the BT-200 is a premier development platform for apps of the future and hands-free scenarios, delivering large, 2D or 3D images, front and center — virtually anywhere.
The BT-200 boasts a display in each lens, giving you an 80-inch perceived screen. A front-facing camera enables augmented reality applications, and the glasses are designed to allow for inserts so you can add prescription lens inserts if needed. Unlike Google Glass, the BT-200 doesn’t just focus on apps, software and augmented reality, but offers a VR-like experience as well, with stereoscopic 3D.
Epson is already working with enterprises and developers like APX Labs and Metaio to incorporate the BT-200’s augmented reality capabilities to allow for use-cases like retail and wholesale supply chain tracking, surgical training for doctors in the operating room, and remote field service support for complex repair operations.
