Unlike other virtual reality glasses, the Epson Moverio BT-100 allows people to see their surroundings past the projections. Instead of slipping on a pair of opaque glasses that seals people in an alternative reality, these glasses feature transparent shades so that individuals can continue to do other things while enjoying some entertainment. It's like a futuristic and highly portable television.
The Epson Moverio BT-100 glasses feature quarter HD and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity that allows wearers to check their email and watch YouTube videos. The glasses also run Android 2.2 with Flash.
Available later this year in Japan, the Epson Moverio BT-100 glasses definitely bring some science fiction technology to people's doorsteps, that is if they like looking like Geordi La Forge.
