Epson will be returning to Droidcon Berlin in June, with its Android-powered, Moverio smart glasses taking centre stage demonstrated by influential developer Sean McCracken of Imaginary Computer, one of the world’s leading voices in smart glasses applications.
McCracken will demonstrate how the technology behind Epson’s Moverio can be used to create next generation AR apps. The company will also showcase its range of sport devices and explain how developers can use heart rate and GPS data in new fitness apps.
Available across Europe, Epson’s binocular, see-through Moverio BT-200 smart glasses present a wealth of new opportunities to Android developers, particularly in the realm of augmented reality (AR). Developers have already started creating apps for businesses and consumers, with for instance Tarkett, a global leader in innovative flooring solutions, just one of the companies already using the platform to enhance its operations.
Epson will also be showcasing its Runsense and Pulsense wearable sport devices at Droidcon Berlin. The devices, launched late last year, produce a wealth of data, helping users to track their training runs, analyse their sleep patterns, heart rate, activity levels and much more. Epson representatives will be available throughout the show to speak with developers interested in developing apps that rival Strava, MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper, or those that have innovative ways to use the data collected by Runsense or Pulsense.
On 3 June at 12pm (CET), Sean McCracken will host a workshop at Droidcon Berlin. During the session, he will give attendees insight about the AR and VR landscape, and a detailed overview of the Moverio smart glasses, covering the technology and its unique capabilities. Attendees will have the opportunity to receive some tips, best practices, and research from a top Head Mounted Display developer on how to make amazing experiences.
Droidcon Berlin takes place at Postbahnhof, Berlin, from 3-5 June 2015.
