The New Android Powered Glasses Officially Being Sold on the Market [Pics]

Never would we have thought EPSON would be the first ones to deliver futuristic glasses to have a 3D built-in High Definition display. The EPSON Moverio BT-100 is now being sold via EPSONStore.com and Amazon.com, selling at $699.99. The device is already out of stock on Amazon.com. Links are provided at the end of this article.

 

The glasses use micro-projection technology and is controlled by a given track pad controller. There are 2 displays, 1 per eyeball, which makes it almost obvious it will have 3D compatibility. The small screens project as a virtual 80 inch theater which supports more than just streaming video. With its built-in WiFi connection, users can also download games and watch content presented in Adobe® Flash 11® support like Youtube videos.

The device also comes with 1 GB of internal memory, 6 hour playback battery life, and a 4GB microSDHC card. Additional features include:

  • Enhance your world — Enjoy content in private while still experiencing the real world with Moverio’s innovative micro-projection and see-through imaging technology
  • Wearable display — View content on a “floating” 80-inch perceived screen while wearing the BT-100 head set powered by an Android-based controller
  • Enjoy a wide range of content — Interactive track pad and smart navigation menus puts Android-based games, apps and content at your fingertip
  • Wi-Fi connectivity — Allows you to browse the web, play games, stream content, check email or research new restaurants from virtually anywhere life takes you
