Epson Moverio BT-300

As early as 2011, Epson introduced the first Moverio, the BT-100. The technology behind Moverio is rooted in the same world-leading 3LCD technology used in Epson projectors for projecting the images on the lenses of the smart glass.

In 2016, Epson announced the launch of the latest addition to its Moverio line, the Moverio BT-300. And in April 2017, the smart glass was officially launched in the Philippines at a price of P43,000.

“The Moverio BT-300 continues Epson’s commitment to binocular smart eyewear and real optical see-through overlay,” Jester Cruz, department head for Product Management Division and product manager for Moverio, Epson Philippines. “Moreover, the Moverio BT-300 adds a new dimension to professionals for improving their efficiency and accuracy at work, enabling workers to share their experience virtually or provide hands-free movement for hands-on work.”

The Moverio BT-300 features Epson’s own cutting edge silicon-based OLED (organic light emitting diode) digital display technology, enabling the device to be the lightest see-through binocular smart glasses on the market, thus setting the new standard for augmented reality smart eyewear.

The Epson Moverio is about Augmented Reality or seeing the actual world, with computer generated graphics augmented on it, much like what the Pokémon Go craze was all about.

But the development of the Epson Moverio is not just for games. Leveraging Epson’s precision engineering capabilities, Epson specifically designed the Moverio to work well in enterprise and industrial environments.
