Epson, a company best known for it’s printers and weird yet strangely helpful ink labelling system. Well not anymore!!! Introducing the Epson Moverio Smart glasses.
Frist realised last year they were thought to be simply a poor rival to the failed Google glass, however in this year’s Mobile World Congress. An incredible pair of glasses (similar to the Google Glass) that may create a new era of drone piloting.
The MOVERIO BT-200 and BT-300 smart glasses are designed to change how you experience the world around you. With the smallest, most comfortable and most affordable smart eyewear on the market, and a growing ecosystem of partners and hardware, Epson continues to set the standard in Augmented Reality.
Here the BT-200 are being used to create the AP video with an Inspire:
For now it seems that these new Holographic glasses will only be usable for AP work due to latency issues, however given a few years we could be seeing FGA and BorisB using these to fly.
