MANILA, Philippines — One of the highlights of the 35th anniversary was the launch of the Moverio BT-350 and Moverio Pro BT-2200 smart glasses with enhanced durability and flexibility for an improved augmented reality experience, built to the demands from commercial and industrial users.

Both the new models feature binocular see-through augmented reality capabilities and HD image quality. Leveraging Epson’s patented optical and precision technologies, the Moverio line of smart glasses has micro projectors located on each side of the eyeglasses that project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view over the real-world environment.
