Last year, we got a glimpse of the Epson Moverio BT-300, a pair of smart glasses with their own homegrown, silicon-based OLED tech, which is similar to Google Glass. Today, they’re giving the public a peek at their display tech in an event at the Ampitheater in Bonifacio High Street.
The Moverio BT-300 has a variety of applications and you’ll be able to test a few of them at the event. The unit currently runs on Android 5.1 with Intel Atom processor at its core, with micro projectors on each side allowing for a transparent overlay of digital content, so you can still see what’s happening around you; the fact that it runs on Android already opens up a ton of possibilities for gaming and entertainment.
Espon understands that, unless you’re swimming in cash like Scrooge McDuck, it may be too deep of an ask for just that. This is why, they’ve made commercial and industrial applications for the Moverio to help assist your repairs when you troubleshoot machinery, managing logistics at warehouses, or providing guided tours in museums. Epson says that it has a battery capable of running the lightweight, see-through binocular glasses for 6 hours.
The two day event, which started today — March 31, also marks the partnership between Epson and DJI. If you haven’t guessed it yet — Yes, you can pilot the drone with the Moverio as your primary display; giving you, as the headline says, a new way of seeing the world. They’ve partnered up with the dudes from Drones PH to give you a first person view of what their DJI drones are capturing through their cameras.
The event is open to the public and will also have talks about Aerial Cinematography, Aerial Photography, and a Race Track that’s open for all drone users. Gates for the Epson’s showcase with open at 10 AM and will close at 10 PM.
See you there!
