EPSON Moverio BT-100 wearable 3D head-mounted display puts Android close to your eyeballs
We have to hand it to EPSON for originality. The company has just announced that it’s shipping the world’s first see-through wearable display (a.k.a. glasses with built-in displays) running Android. The EPSON Moverio BT-100 is a relatively bulky set of glasses (that are however much smaller than other head-mounted displays we’ve seen, like the Sony HMZ-T1) with twin 0.52-inch qHD (960×540) resolution LCD displays, a pair of earphones and a separate hand controller connected to the glasses with a wire.
The hand controller features a touchpad in order to control the on-screen cursor, a directional-pad and a standard set of Android buttons. There is also a 2D/3D mode toggle. The glasses can obviously do 3D and, similar to other 3D goggles, the effect is better than let’s say 3D TVs since each eye is seeing a completely different image, eliminating cross-talk.
