Wearable Display glasses have been around for a while now, but Epson’s new Moverio BT-100 are the world’s first Android-based See-Through wearable display glasses. Because, yep, it seems like they are putting Android in EVERYTHING nowadays.
These futuristic glasses in particular, are able to immerse users in what feels like an 80 inch “floating” screen. The device also packs in built-in Wi-Fi, so that users can connect to content from just about anywhere. It also packs in a six hour battery life and Dolby Mobile surround sound that is channeled through personal earphones or Moverio’s detachable earphones. Meanwhile, the whole system is navigated using an Android-powered touch-based track-pad controller. And sure, it may just be android 2.2, but color us still impressed. Finally, the system also has support for both 2D and 3D content, as well as support for Flash 11. Check out some other features below:
- Enhanced Mobility: Rechargeable battery offers nearly six hours of battery life
