MWC 2016: EPSON announces Moverio BT-300 Android-powered augmented reality (AR) smart glasses. Epson today announced the third generation of its Moverio smart glasses for augmented reality (AR). On display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain this week, the Moverio BT-300 features Epson's breakthrough silicon-based OLED (organic light emitting diode) digital display technology, enabling truly transparent mobile augmented reality (AR) experiences for business and consumers.
The Moverio BT-300 is the lightest binocular see-though smart glasses announced to date, and is more than 20% lighter than the Moverio BT-200, setting a new standard for augmented reality (AR) smart eyewear. The glasses are powered by a quad-core Intel Atom X5 processor and Android 5.1, enabling efficient rendering of complex 3D experiences.
An upgraded 5 mega pixel front-facing camera and on-board sensors enable the Moverio BT-300 to more precisely determine the location of objects in the real world. The Si-OLED projection system can then seamlessly render and lock 3D content to these objects, with no display background or edges in the field of view.
Pricing & Availability
The Epson Moverio BT-300 will be available in late 2016 and is available for pre-order at Epson.com/Moverio.
