The Epson Moverio BT-200 augmented reality smart glasses can now be purchased with a $699.99 price tag, and while the headset may not be stylish, could end up being a great tool for use in the enterprise space.

Epson first showed off the Moverio BT-200 during CES in January, and added intrigue by including two screens. The company says using the glasses is the equivalent of looking into an 80" HDTV right in your face, and requires a handheld touchpad to use.

 

"Moverio BT-200 is Epson's second-generation smart glasses and incorporate much of the feedback provided by both the AR developer and end-user communities," said Anna Jen, Epson America New Ventures/New Products Director, in a press statement. "With these improvements, Moverio BT-200 is poised to deliver an AR experience that will revolutionize workflow, training and repair in the enterprise environment."

 

Although the consumer market is growing on the idea of augmented reality and smart glasses, these types of products already have growing interest in the enterprise market.
