Neon Roots Heads To CES 2015 To Show Off The Latest In AR Technology!

CES 2015 has returned to Las Vegas through the 9th, and Neon Roots is there.  We’ve partnered with Epson to showcase their state-of-the-art Moverio™ BT-200 Smart Glasses.  We have a booth set up inside Epson to demo the work we’ve done on an innovative new app and several exclusive AR games for the Moverio.

The Moverio is Epson’s latest and greatest innovation in the world of wearable technology.  According to Epson:

These binocular, transparent smart glasses open up a whole new world in entertainment, manufacturing, medical science and more. Unlike competitive models, each lens has its own display, right in your field of vision, projected into your surroundings. And, the BT-200 boasts 2x the virtual screen size, at a remarkably affordable price. These lightweight glasses work out-of-the-box with Bluetooth and other technology, plus most AndroidTM apps. With a front-facing camera and motion tracker, the BT-200 is a premier development platform for apps of the future and hands-free scenarios, delivering large, 2D or 3D images, front and center — virtually anywhere!

We’ve been hard at work developing an app for their LabelWorks line.  LabelWorks includes a vast variety of printer products and organization tools that will now be accessible through an immersive, augmented reality experience.  Of course the Moverio doesn’t just want to make life simpler; it wants to make it more fun, which is why we’ve also development interactive and eye-popping games for the breakout system.

And there’s no better place to showcase these new developments than at one of the world’s largest tech conferences.  The International Consumer Electronics Show has long been one of the most productive gathering places for those interested in and/or developing consumer technologies and CES 2015 will be no different.

Be sure to come see us at our booth #74728 and let us show you what the future holds for augmented reality and wearable tech!
