The yet-unnamed product would integrate a bright, high-contrast display with a pair of seemingly ordinary-looking sunglasses -- sounds like a perfect companion to the ZionEyez in-glasses camera prototype we saw last month.
If augmented reality is yet to make the market splash its VR cousin has, that's probably down to the relative shortcomings of transparent displays, but Epson 's latest Moverio BT-300 suggests a tipping point is close. Freshly announced at Mobile World Congress today, the BT-300 headset not only slims down Epson's wearable display, but massively improves the image quality and usability.
Epson debuted the third iteration of its Moverio AR glasses series, dubbed the BT-300, at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona on Monday. The new smart specs boast completely transparent lenses impregnated with OLED displays, a quad-core Intel Atom X5 processor and the Android 5.1 operating system.

At the Baselworld watch event in Switzerland this week, a new smartwatch from Tissot was announced, making it the first such wearable from the Swatch Group.

Normally, a battery with a bigger capacity occupies more space than one with lower figures, which usually means having to adjust physical designs to accommodate the larger packs. BMW , however, has managed the rare feat of cramming higher capacity batteries in the same amount of space. That's what the 2017 BMW i3 (94 Ah) boasts of. Don't let the rather unusual name fool you.
This is a crowdfunded project, and as such may not deliver what its creators initially promise. Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
Whether or not this works is far from certain. Doctors are going to watch the woman's progress closely over the next year, and she may need up to three more treatments. The cells also can't adjust their light sensitivity the way a retina can, so a truly effective system might need video glasses that automatically tweak the image brightness as the wearer ventures indoors or outdoors.

Apple may have devised a new Smart Connector for its iPad Pro line, but so far that has been utilized for one and one thing only: a keyboard Smart Cover. Of course, Apple had more in mind in the past, even if only one actually made it to production. At least for now.
Back at CES this year, Razer made a surprise announcement. Sure, the Core external GPU solution and the Stargazer webcam, I was shown something that had little to do with gaming at all. I'm talking, of course, about the Razer Nabu Watch. The Nabu Watch isn't the first wearable from Razer. They've released a couple of fitness trackers under the Nabu name.
The team at WobbleWorks has been quick to iterate on the concept of a 3D printing pen in the past 3 years, and it's not stopping any time soon. The startup has unveiled the 3Doodler Create, a third-generation pen that irons out some of the remaining kinks.
EasyAcc is a quality mobile accessory manufacturer of things like external batteries, chargers, cases, and headphones. Recently, I got a chance to review one of its sweet power banks with a huge 20,000mAh capacity and rugged build.
