Epson Moverio BT-100 glasses come from the future: see-through glasses powered by Android, now available
If you thought having a smart display integrated inside your glasses was a part of our distant future, you’d better think again - the Epson Moverio BT-100 come straight from your dreams. Controlled by an Android-infused gizmo, you can buy them now for the salty price of $699 and make your best Robocop impression scaring passers-by on the street.

The Moverio BT-100 projects an 80-inch perceived "floating" display that you can use for browsing the web, playing games, watching videos and pretty much everything while still seeing the outside world. The Android-powered controller comes along with Wi-Fi connectivity, so you can easily browse the web.

The unique video glasses are definitely something we can imagine going into our daily lives, but they’d need to get much smaller to match most people’s tastes. Hit the source below for all the details and don’t forget to share your feelings about this new Android-powered gadget in the comments below.

Futuristic! Wish the dimensions of the product were smaller!

If this becomes popular in time they will look just like ordinary glasses

They should put the hardware like behind the head or connected by wire and can be pocketed, then the glasses themselves would be smaller and more usable :p I'd love to have one though, it's like living in a virtual world!

While Android is breaking barriers, all people care about is how clear the iPad's screen is and a voice assistant. This world disappoints me.

Looks alright but there's no way I'm going back to Froyo

This can be useful for multitasking jobs, stock traders for example.
