Tech giant Epson unveils what the future of augmented reality looks like with the release of Moverio BT-300 Smart Glasses late 2016. Priced at $779, the developer edition of Moverio BT-300 is bound to impress AR fans with a sleeker design and upgraded technology compared to its predecessor BT-200.
The Moverio BT-300 FPV Drone Edition for pilots of DJI™ drone, priced at $799 was released in January 2017.
What sets Moverio BT-300 apart is the Si-OLED technology that it used for the display. With a resolution of 1280 x 720, the Si-OLED display provides sharp, bright and vibrant images. The display, when turned off, are totally invisible as it merges seamlessly to the glasses.
The Moverio BT-300 smart glasses is powered by Intel Axom 5 processor and runs on Android 5.1 making it easier for developers to work on AR apps. The Moverio BT-300 also weigh 20% lighter compared to its predecessor, making it the lightest AR headset in the world.
The Moverio BT-300 spots a transparent display that projects images on an 80 inches floating screen 5 meters in front of your eyes. There is also a 5 Megapixel camera located at the front of the glasses along with the motion and ambient light sensors.
While not the most stylish glasses that you would wear around, it is definitely a much improvement from its predecessor with an almost “Google”-like design.
The Moverio BT-300 is connected to an Android controller that has a trackpad and basic Android buttons through a wire. This provides a familiar interface to existing Android user although an improvement would be welcome in the form of wireless or swipe/gesture control.
