Android Glasses, Epson Glasses, Moverio, Thedroidguy, 9to5googleEpson has been around since the dot matrix printer days. I know some of you are thinking “What’s a dot matrix printer”? Well just take my word for it, it’s a long time.

The Tokyo Japan based company has announced the availability of the Epson Moverio BT-100 Android powered glasses. They carry an MSRP of $699 but for the technology you’re getting, that’s a relatively good deal.

The Moverio BT-100 feature include:
80 inch perceived projection display
Dolby Mobile surround sound
Wi-Fi Connectivity
6 hour battery life
1gb of built in storage
microSD slot with 4gb card.

The glasses use micro-projection technology along with an Android powered track-pad controller. The user can enjoy video on the 80 inch perceived projection display. You can also experience 3d side by side content and download digital content.

Apps like Netflix, Amazon Kindle, and Angry Birds work great on the Moverio BT-100 glasses.

“As the world leader in visual imaging technology, Epson continually strives to set industry benchmarks for quality and innovation,” said Anna Jen, director of New Business Development, Epson America. “The Moverio BT-100 see-through display is poised to significantly impact not only the way people interact with content for personal enjoyment, but the development of content for future applications – from virtual training platforms to a new way to interact with 3D CADenvironments to visualizing 3D design renderings.”
