Epson has teamed up with NGRAIN to create the Moverio BT-200 smart glasses for use in industrial design and repair. The glasses are connected to a controller to minimize the weight of the actual glasses as well as allowing you control options on the 3D view you see through the glasses. The Register were not overly impressed with the image nor the interface but could certainly see the usefulness in the demonstrations that were conducted. One benefit the glasses do offer is dual usage, they can be used both to show 3D images as well as augmented reality overlays when looking at physical objects, allowing to use the interface you prefer.
"You may be really looking forward to 3D glasses but based on the latest tech giant's efforts, it may be some time.
Today we tried out Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses at IoT World in San Francisco and were left… underwhelmed."
