Even though Google was one of the first in the market to show off a device like Glass, there were several other manufacturers that beat them to the punch as far as retail availability is concerned. Epson was one of them with its Moverio smart glasses which broke cover a couple of years ago, but to a pretty moderate response. The company has now launched the second gen version of those smart glasses dubbed the BT-200 powered by Android for $699.99.
While it costs substantially lesser than Google’s offering, it’s not quite the same as far as functionality is concerned. The design is slightly retro, in a sense that it doesn’t look futuristic, which is usually a norm with devices like these. Also, it’s running Android 4.0 out of the box much to our astonishment.
Epson claims that the Moverio BT-200 packs Dolby Mobile Surround Sound with the earbuds that are supplied with the glasses, which isn’t a bad feature to have. Other features include a microSD card slot (4GB card provided) and 6 hours of battery life.
