Epson shows off Microsoft HoloLens 3D smart glasses rival

Epson is rivalling the likes of Microsoft’s HoloLens with a 3D headset of its own, which it showed off at the IoT World event in San Francisco this week.

The print vendor showcased its Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses which it is aiming at the industrial sector. Epson first unveiled the wearable device last year.

It has also teamed up with interactive 3D software manufacturer Ngrain to produce a developer kit.

A separate control device comes with the glasses, which connects to it through a wire. A built-in camera, gyroscope and GPS sensor are included and it also runs on Android.

Users can watch an image of up to 320 inches in size in qHD resolution across the glasses, which will allow users to view content in 3D.

In addition, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 access is included, as well as Miracast, making it possible for users to connect to various devices and stream the web.

Plus, a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory is also available to store apps and films.

Microsoft hasn’t yet revealed the price of its HoloLens headset, but Epson’s offering has a price tag of £569.
