Epson's new concept in the world of portable entertainment

Epson has harnessed its years of experience in digital imaging and developing new products to bring you the Moverio BT-100 – the first wearable See-Through Mobile Viewer for the consumer market. These multimedia glasses allow you to enjoy big-screen entertainment on an Android 2.21 operating system wherever you want, whenever you want.

Here's everything you'll need to know about Epson's newest concept for the portable entertainment market:


It's a brand new viewing experience

The Moverio BT-100's headset is shaped like a pair of sunglasses. The second you put it on, you'll immediately notice that you can see through the lenses without feeling cut off from your surroundings. This means you can still keep an eye on everything around you while watching your content in private; perfect for travelling, waiting for a flight or just relaxing at home

The large perceived image size is equivalent to watching a 320-inch display from 20 metres away while images are delivered with a QHD resolution, exactly one quarter of a Full HD 1080p frame.
