Epson smart glasses
Epson, a Japanese electronics company, started developing smart glasses in 2011. The company's first smart glasses, Moverio BT-100, were released in November 2011. Since then, Epson has continued developing and releasing several new smart glasses models. The latest edition of Moverio BT-45C sets a new standard of use for industrial applications and is great for remote assistance during work in the field.
Epson Moverio BT-45C
- Centred HD 8MP front-facing camera with autofocus and built-in audio
- Flip-up design for when the display is not in use
- A highly robust yet comfortable design with over-the-glasses support
- Connects to compatible USB Type-C2 devices with a single cable
- MIL-STD-810H drop test1, IP52 and ANSI Z87.1 compliant
The glasses feature a transparent Si-OLED (Silicon Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display that projects information before the wearer's eyes, creating an augmented reality experience. They come with 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) tracking technology for accurate and responsive head tracking. The glasses also have an improved camera, which can capture high resolution video at 30 frames per second and take detailed photos. The Moverio BT-45C has 128 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to 2 TB with a microSD card. It supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB Type-C connectivity.
A unique feature is that you can switch between see-through and opaque modes. In opaque mode, the glasses block out the wearer's surroundings and project information directly onto the display. This can be useful in environments where visual distractions need to be minimized. In see-through mode, the glasses allow the wearer to see their surroundings while projecting information onto the display.
