See things your way
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.
You choose where you want to use it
You're not restricted to watching your favourite content at home. Thanks to the Wi-Fi connectivity, you have the freedom to update your social media accounts, catch up on breaking news stories or watch videos online whenever and wherever you want.
You can also take advantage of the Android 2.2 operating system and everything it has to offer, so you can play games, browse through photos, watch videos and much more.
Store lots of content
You don't have to be tethered to large, bulky entertainment devices to watch and play content on the Moverio BT-100. With the included 4GB SDHC memory card, which can be upgraded to 32GB, you can transfer files from your computer and store lots of different content to watch movies, TV shows and listen to music anywhere.
The detachable Dolby Mobile2 stereo sound earphones provide you with rich, full audio and make sure you're able to fully enjoy your movies, music and games.
Everything with the headset is powered through the small control box so you can watch content hands-free. The smartphone-sized box easily fits in your pocket and lets you navigate with the touch-sensitive trackpad and operation buttons without having to touch the headset.
It's extremely easy to use
When you switch the device on, you're greeted by a familiar icon display with a carousel menu. You'll find everything you need from this menu by scrolling through the easy-to-navigate categories.
You'll also be offered help every step of the way thanks to the in-built digital user guide, making sure you experience everything the Moveria BT-100 has to offer.
