It is officially announced by Epson that the company is going to exhibit its latest smart glasses of Moverio during the Google I/O developers conference 2013. Technology is becoming more and more exciting by the second. With new products out in the market such as Virtual Reality and Google Glasses it hardly comes as a surprise that the possibilities are limitless.
A recent trend in this regard is Moverio. This is a wearable technology that appears to be heavier than Google Glasses. With Google Glasses hogging the limelight many thought this was a one-man show. But it appears there are other players on the scene and they carry clout. Epson is the chief one among them. It has something new to announce at the Google I/O 2013 Show.
The conference will be held and that is when Epson will show its cards. And it is not about to fold them and leave the table. One of the hindrances it faces even now is that the Moverio glasses are rather unwieldy and clumsy in their design. This is because of the ten thousand micro-circuits and electronic energy that have gone into their making.
Imagine the scenario! You are sitting before a normal YouTube page and as you sway your noggin side to side or front and back the videos on display either rewind themselves or go fast forward. You can even record them or press the pause button with a mere movement of your skull via these Moverio glasses.
The future looks rosy for Epson since it has matched wits with Google. At the conference the demonstration is planned to go as usual. Epson and its partner APX will display the device in all its variegated functions. It will indeed be a feast for the eyes.
While it is a heavy weight pair of glasses alright yet the very thought of using body language and natural instinctive responses to control technology is electrifying. And to think that up until now it has been just a sneak preview of Moverio we have been allowed to gaze at in utter delight. The reality is much more stimulating than the trailer. As the saying goes, truth is stranger than fiction. What will happen when the real thing comes along at the Google I/O 2013 Show? That’ll be the day!
