Epson to Showcase New Consumer and Enterprise Apps on Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses at CES 2015

Augmented Reality Apps for Live Action Gaming, Education, Manufacturing and More Demonstrate Power of Platform for Merging Digital Content with Real-World Environment

Epson America is showcasing the power of its Moverio™ BT-200 smart glasses for augmented reality experiences with consumer and enterprise applications from a variety of developers at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas at the Epson America booth #74728 in the Sands Convention Center.

Leveraging the unique capabilities of the Moverio BT-200 platform, new consumer applications will be demonstrated that transform the gaming experience with real-world interaction, education and training applications that enable new ways to learn and retain information, and industrial applications that provide workers with greater efficiency and safety.

The Moverio BT-200 offers an unparalleled binocular smart glasses experience optimized for augmented reality applications. Micro projectors located on each side of the lens project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user's field of view over the real-world environment. In addition to the Moverio BT-200's sensors for head-motion tracking and hands-free navigation, the smart glasses include a front-facing camera for video as well as image capture that detects real-world markers for augmented reality applications.

"Since launching the Moverio BT-200 smart glasses last year, we have seen tremendous interest from developers in leveraging the platform's augmented reality capabilities for exciting new consumer and enterprise apps," said Eric Mizufuka, product manager, New Ventures for Epson America. "These applications by these developers demonstrate the incredible benefits that can be gained by viewing and interacting with digital content woven into the everyday environment."

Following are the demonstrations scheduled at the Epson booth:
