© 2012 PhysOrg.com At tech events, wearable displays that have showcased in the form of high-tech visors and chunky spectacles or goggles seem to draw measured responses—impressive inventions for private media viewing at home or on the go but silly-looking or even evocative of special-recovery shades for postoperative elderly outpatients. We noticed at least one reference to “grandma glasses.” Epson’s Moverio BT-100 Wearable Display do not look exactly like designer sunglasses but they do have loaded features for gadget collectors who do not think $699.99 is an unthinkable price. Explore further Epson packs features into new Android HMD More information: www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Moverio/Home.do According to reports, the glasses have pico projectors that are able to create a virtual experience of up to 80 inches’ display at a perceived distance of about 16 feet. According to Expert Reviews, the headset has a tiny pico projector built into each arm, pointing inwards towards an angled mirror in each lens, which projects the image in the center of the wearer’s vision. The dark outer visor is semi-transparent, letting the wearer see surroundings without being distracted by them. The device carries 1GB of built-in storage. Users access downloaded content via the microSDHC card slot (4GB card included) There is built-in WFi connectivity; a lithium rechargeable battery provides around six hours of continuous use. Built-in earbuds provide Dolby Mobile virtual surround sound. Of all the features, much appears to be made of the Android name in Epson product descriptions, as “Android-powered Moverio glasses.” The glasses connect to a control module; this Android 2.2-based handheld device lets the user select the content to view. Moverio is running on an Android 2.2 platform with Adobe Flash support. Epson publishes the kernel and an SDK, but the company is requiring developers to submit apps to them for consideration rather than going through an app store. The good news is that Epson is interested in seeing more new Android-based applications and side-by-side 3D content for its Moverio BT-100. To help support application and content development for Moverio BT-100, Epson is offering programs for developers residing in the United States.Meanwhile, Epson’s end-user vision is to see the product adopted not merely for personal entertainment use but also for business and professional ends. Epson America’s Anna Jen, director of New Business Development, said the Moverio BT-100 may play a role in virtual training platforms, 3D-CAD environments, and visualizing 3-D design renderings.

Miley said Cashmore will plead guilty to being an accessory to robbery, a felony that could get him up to five years in prison. A court hearing is set for Monday, a court clerk confirmed. “He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Miley said of Cashmore, a 40-year-old laborer, bartender and disc jockey who lives in Las Vegas. Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined to comment. Simpson and the others are charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, assault, burglary and conspiracy in the Sept. 13 encounter in a Las Vegas casino hotel room between Simpson and memorabilia collectors Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong. COURTS: The man will plead guilty and testify that guns were involved in the robbery. By Ken Ritter THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS – Accused of being one of five men who joined O.J. Simpson in a hotel-room confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers, Charles Cashmore will plead guilty to a reduced charge and testify that guns were involved in the theft of sports collectibles. Simpson also faces a felony charge of coercion, alleging that he took a cell phone from Fromong. Simpson has said he wanted to retrieve personal items that belonged to him, and his lawyers have maintained that no guns were used. But Cashmore will testify that Walter Alexander and Michael McClinton, two men who entered the room with Simpson, had guns, Miley said. Miley said Cashmore was unarmed during the alleged robbery. “The only people with guns that he knew of were Alexander and McClinton,” Miley said, adding that Cashmore’s crime was failing to immediately go to police and turn over the items he carried out of the room. Cashmore surrendered to authorities six days later and turned over the items, after police released images from hotel security videotapes showing him carrying a box from the room. Lawyers for Simpson, McClinton and most of the others did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Alexander’s lawyer, Robert Dennis Rentzer, declined to say whether Alexander had a gun in the room. “I owe the district attorney an answer to that question before the press,” he said. Rentzer said he was scheduled to meet with Roger on Monday, but he expressed doubt Cashmore could say Alexander was armed. “How can he put a gun in the possession of someone who didn’t have a gun out?” Rentzer said. Miley said Cashmore met Simpson and most of the others in the group for the first time minutes before the alleged robbery. “O.J. says, `Hey I’ve got to move some stuff, can you help?”‘ Miley said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
