Epson Australia has expanded its product portfolio from printers and projectors to smartglasses, by launching its new Si-OLED AR spectacles – the ‘Moverio BT-35E’ – later this month for A$1,199.

Compatible with HDMI and USB-C, the smartglasses connect to an array of popular devices to “seamlessly blend digital content with the real world” – without needing any “special software”.

Watch Epson’s Moverio BT-35E smartglasses in action below:

The smartglasses pledge to offer an “easy out-of-the-box experience”, with no software required to connect to “virtually any device”.

Application examples include enterprise drone piloting used by engineers/real estate agents, or within a gallery/museum to communicate visual facts to visitors.

The glasses’ interface does not require an external power source, when used with a compatible USB-C device.

The Moverio BT-35E functions as a wearable display for any standard HDMI (HDMI1.4) or USB-C output device supporting DisplayPort Alt Mode – thereby eliminating the need to port new content to Moverio’s platform.

Epson Australia Sales & Marketing Manager Consumer Division, Bruce Bealby, claims the Moverio BT-35E are its first smartglasses to fuse a wearable display with existing output devices.

“Prior to the new Moverio BT-35E smartglasses, Moverio products have been standalone and have included an Android-based controller unit”

“The Moverio BT-35E takes this to a new level and represents Epson’s first smartglasses that provide users with wider access to content that they want on a wearable display through existing output devices.”
