Epson has launched the Moverio BT-100 multimedia glasses that allow users to access images, video and content from flash-based websites while on the move.
Moverio offers a high-resolution see-through display, Wi-Fi connectivity and smart navigation capabilities that create an innovative visual experience. Like other first-generation products, Moverio exposes a whole new world of technological possibilities. Running on an Android 2.2 platform with Adobe Flash 11 support, streaming content from flash-based websites via a Wi-Fi connection is really easy and simple.
Users can access content from a variety of sources, including the built-in gallery and music apps. The system can be constantly updated with new apps and new content. Imagine playing an online flight simulation game one minute and the next minute flying a drone plane while simultaneously viewing the live video feed from the drone’s cameras projected in front of your eyes as an 80″ perceived image.
Developed with the traveller in mind, Moverio draws from Epson’s expertise in imaging technologies and delivers a QHD (Quad HD) display resolution, which equals a quarter of Full HD, ensures that the experience is similar to watching a big-screen projection, even in confined environments such as aeroplanes, buses and cars.
Moverio offers a hands-free, big screen experience alternative to small smartphone and tablet PC screens and is very easy to use. It comes with a control unit, detachable headphones, a 4GB SD card, 1GB internal memory and a carry case.
Kelvin Reynolds, general manager at Epson South Africa said: ‚””As a business, Epson is focused on innovation and identifying and catering for future technology trends we are particularly excited about the opportunity to bring wearable see-through technology to market. This wearable content viewing device offers users the opportunity to watch content on the go, without being cut off from their surrounding environment.
