Epson announced today the launch of the Moverio BT-300, a pair of augmented reality smart glasses in Southeast Asia.
The Moverio BT-300 features silicon-based OLED digital display technology, which translates into a really low device weight. It’s the lightest binocular smart glass on the market. There are also micro projectors located on each side of the eyeglasses that project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view.

Other functions include a front-facing 5-megapixel HD camera and intelligent tracking sensors that analyzes the dimensions of an object.
