Epson Moverio BT-300 Smart Glasses Unveiled at MWC 2016

Epson unveiled the new Moverio BT-300 smart glasses today in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress 2016.

Moverio BT-300 is the most recent and advanced addition to the Smart glasses family of the company.

Pre-production models are on display at the booth in Congress Square. The models are a lot more advanced than the previous Moverio models.

The BT-300 sports have a micro display projection system called Si-OLED (which stands for Silicon Organic Light-Emitting Diode).

As per the product manager Michael Leyva, the new display is capable of producing more deep and black tones.

This means that the new glasses blend projected digital content much more realistically with the actual world you see while wearing these glasses.

As for the other features and betterments, there is 30% reduction in weight. Therefore, the weight of this model will be in the range of 60 grams.

The Smart glasses are powered by Android 5.1 with an Intel Atom 5, and 1.44 GHZ Quad core chip.

There is also a 5 megapixel front facing camera which has replaced the VGA camera of the previous BT-200 version.

There are many other uses of the glasses including Retail Shopper Assistance, Augmented Reality training, Remote Assistance, First Person View (FPV) for Quadcopter piloting and In-line video entertainment etc.

Pricing details of the BT-300 are not available yet. But, we can already assume that the price of the glasses will range between $700 and $800.

The shipment is expected to begin in Quarter 4, 2016.

On the same day, Toshiba scrapped its smart glasses that just were supposed to go on sale. In an effort to streamline the financially ailing company, Toshiba announced to kill the Toshiba Wearvue TG-1 smart glasses.
