Epson Moverio BT-200

Epsons Moverio BT-200, which is powered by Metaio, is a Smart Glass, which is a the second model upgraded from their first model of Smart Glass the BT-100, which was way too bulky and not that up to the mark with the competition. The Epson Moverio Smart Glass is based on the Augmented Reality SDK.

You might be comparing this to the Google Glass-like I did when you started reading the post, and I must say that after I got to know about the device. It seems to have some great features like in Google Glass; you will get a list of Notifications displayed as a layer on the Glass surface for you to see. But Epson Moverio projects the content up onto the see-through Lens.

Design

The Moverio Smart Glasses has a transparent display which gives a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels with the help of two projectors even capable of projecting 3D images, a front facing camera with the presence of LED indicator light in the front. The device is comparatively a lot less bulky than the massive BT-100 but when compared to the sleek design of Google Glass, it stands nowhere near in the design aspect. The connectivity with the help of a Wire to the Touchpad is very unappealing. There are Motion sensors that help in detecting the movement of your head and adjusting the projection, and the sound is produced by Dolby Digital Surround Sound technology.

Specifications

The Moverio BT-200 also has a Front facing camera which was absent in BT-100 to capture images and videos, there is a LED indicator light in the front. The device will be running a full version of the Android 4.0 where Apps are also available for use. The Eyewear is connected to the Input Source with the help of a cord connected to the left side of the glasses.

The Cord connects to the Input source which also happens to be a TouchPad, which can be used to move the cursor on your Screen visible through the eyewear and click and make full use of OS. But carrying a bulky Touchpad connected to a thick Wire all the time seems impractical for use outdoors mainly.

Another factor to consider is the problem in using this BT-200 with prescription glasses that becomes quite a problem for the user and not so fashionable either. So if you are planning to use the BT-200 you need to be wearing contacts if you are a far or near sighted person to get the most of the device.

You can even play some games with this device using the TouchPad; we need to kill enemies by moving our head and locating them and shooting is done by tapping on the touchpad. It was a good way to show how Apps can be developed to play games and for other uses as well.

Pricing

Epson’s Moverio BT-200 is available at a considerably cheap rate, or half that of the price Google Glass is sold at. Epson’s Moverio is priced at $699.99 which is about £436 and AU$780.
