The revolutionary mobile entertainment viewer features advanced see-through lenses to keep you connected with your surroundings and online activities at the same time.

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is composed of a headset that uses a micro-projection technology and an Android-powered media player and controller. The device allows users to view streaming video, experience 2D and 3D content (in side-by-side format) and enjoy downloaded digital content on a large virtual 80-inch perceived screen projected from 5 meters away.

TV shows, movies and even side by side 3D content can be stored as MPEG4 files on the 4GB micro SDHC memory card which is included. Audio is provided through detachable Dolby Mobile stereo sound earphones.

Featuring built-in 802.11n wireless connectivity and nearly six hours of rechargeable battery life, the device offers an innovative, portable way to interact with content from virtually any location

While other personal viewing devices limit users to indoor power and bulky playback devices, BT-100 was designed from the ground up to move with you. It frees the user up to enjoy movies, images and more with amazing clarity on the go, the company said.

“Like pioneering personal entertainment products such as the Sony Walkman or Apple iPod , the Epson Moverio BT-100 see-through mobile viewer is poised to significantly change the way people experience, and even interact with content for personal enjoyment. One day, we believe such viewers will be common; and we’re proud to be one of the pioneers,” said Samba Moorthy, director, Sales & Marketing.

The device can be used by the service industry to add value to their products. With this focus in mind, Epson will market the product to schools, aviation and the travel industry, as well as high-end service providers such as nail parlors or private dental clinics; to give their customers a tailor-made entertainment experience.

The products would be available in major retail outlets in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore & Hyderabad at MRP or INR 42900.
