When you think of Epson, you typically think of printers or projectors. And not in that order. So it’s a bit of a surprise to find out that the company is working on a set of smart glasses. Their second set, actually, called the Moverio Pro BT-2000.
A modification of their BT-200 glasses, the Moverio Pro BT-2000 set is being pitched at engineers and other companies rather than retail customers. Makes sense, really, it’s quite hard to get the average person to accept smart glasses just yet.
But Epson are outfitting their new tech specs (heh) with a set of depth-sensing cameras, which also support head tracking and augmented reality, making them ideal for use in industry. Imagine working on a project or device and having the information you need literally in front of your eyeballs. Work great in a workshop, though we’d give it a skip if we were driving, thanks.
When we can expect to see them and at what cost… those are items of information we have to wait for but they should launch later this year.
