Epson has upgraded its Moverio BT-200 smart glasses -- one of the highlights of CES 2014 -- by pairing it with a wearable armband that allows for gesture control of applications more advanced than that seen in the movie 'Minority Report', which was set in the year 2054. The fusion of the augmented reality heads-up display and the Thalmic Labs Myo gesture control wristband was revealed at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

By pairing the Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses with the Myo wristband, users can indulge in immersive experiences only ever seen in movies. For example, users who wear both the smart glasses and the wristband can make a fist to 'grab' a data stream projected in their field of vision and relocate it on a virtual desktop.

The pairing can also be used to provide a second screen experience laid on top of the real-life visual field. This would allow users to keep tabs on social media and feeds while watching TV or even enjoying a live event.
