Epson Moverio BT-200
The Epson Moverio BT-200 is what Epson call “intelligent glasses”. Most of us might associate Epson with printers, but that doesn’t mean they can’t produce good tech in other departments. This is a decent set of augmented reality smart glasses (a lot like a poor man’s Google Glass) the glasses project a video image in your field of vision that appears as a stereoscopic image over both eyes, not just 1 like Google Glass. It’s all very much run of the mill tech these days.
Powered by an Android operating system it uses a sort of smartphone interface control unit. It’s comfortable to wear, easy to use and cheaper than Google Glass ever was! But this is not strictly a consumer product. Epson intends this headset primarily for enterprise and development applications as it even requires a small amount of coding work to run Android apps on it. This is a good quality AR headset for all the tech-heads and coders out there. But in the future, we suspect a more consumer friendly version to be released.
