Epson Moverio Media Launch Event

Attended Epson Moverio Media Launch Event at Ion Sky, a radically innovative ANDROID™-BASED see through mobile viewer.

That's gonna be the most private and personal display devices ever.

Continued reading to find out why.

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is a see-through mobile viewer which operates on the Google Android™ 2.2 platform.

A revolutionary mobile entertainment viewer that lets you experience larger than life movies, images and more with crystal clarity. Unlike conventional opaque viewers, the Android powered BT-100 features advanced see-through lenses to keep you connected with our surroundings and online activities at the same time. 

This was actually my first visit up to Ion Sky Level 55 & 56.

And we got a nice view of our city skyline. Very impressive landscape of Singapore.

And of course I'm here with the usuals.

My usual camwhoring with GF.

And with the guys - HP and Terence.

We can't wait to try the see-through lenses ourselves. It looked so cool.

They brought so many mobile viewers here.

The Launch event began with an opening dance. The dancers were wearing the Moverio and dancing at the same time. This means that the mobile viewer will not hinder our movement at all.

Don't they look cool with Moverio?
They looked like they were in sci-fi city with the sci-fi glasses..

And the renowned TV host and emcee - Melody Chen who was also wearing the launch product, Moverio BT-100.

So how do you find the see-through devices so far?

Welcome speech by Mr Koichi Endo, Managing Director of Epson South East Asia.

Next we had Vernon Wong who shared with us the features and advantages of Moverio BT-100:

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is composed of a headset that uses groundbreaking micro-projection technology and an Android-powered media player and controller.

This is a great entertainment device when we are travelling or waiting to catch a flight, or even in MRT. Sometimes you felt so annoying when you are playing games or watching movies on phone, and the person standing or sitting next to you keep peeking at your phone. 

With Moverio BT-100, we will be able to do web browsing, playing games, watching videos and interacting with content privately, at the same time experience and see the real world, thanks to its see-through ability.

Feeling so excited while waiting for my turn.

Wow, BT-100 is indeed perfectly designed.

The fit of the headset is easily customizable with replacement nose pads and adjustable side arms that accomodate glasses. 

The product is amazing. Upon wearing BT-100, my vision was instantly switch to an underwater world film and at the same time, I was able to observe what's happening around my surroundings.

BT-100 opens my eyes to a mobile cinematic experience with unrivalled privacy. People around you will totally not have any idea about what you are doing or looking at.

Hmm, what film or image will you want to watch when you are all alone????

Too engrossed in watching the film.

Seeing is believing.
