Hands-on review of the Epson Moverio BT-100 transparent multimedia glasses
A Closer Look
The Epson Moverio BT-100′S smartphone-sized control box with touch sensitive trackpad means you can effortlessly navigate between menus and find exactly what you’re looking for, offering you a hands-free alternative to small smartphone and tablet PC screens.
There is a little pull open slot on the left side of the box that houses the micro SD card
Using the Glasses
In order to watch something you need to first connect the control box to your PC and copy content over. This is a fairly simple and straightforward process and doesn’t take very long (unless you are copying a lot of content, in which case be patient).
Then it’s time to put on the glasses and fire up the control box. It fits reasonably well in your hand.
This is the first screen you see through the glasses – you need to “unlock” the device using the control box and using your finger on the pad you move a pointer to the padlock and then push it up almost to top of the screen. I found this to be somewhat cumbersome and often it took me multiple attempts to get it working. Surely there could be an easier way to activate it?
