The Moverio BT-100 does FullHD, 3D, and Flash, and check your emails while you are at it.

Epson may be well known for its quality printers, but the company is increasingly dabbling into various other technologies. One of them is the snazzy Moverio BT-100, “the world’s first” Android-based, see-through wearable display.

The Moverio BT-100 projects an 80″ FullHD display on the glasses, and since they are see-through, it does not make you completely blind while doing so. The glasses comes equipped with 3D support and Dolby Mobile-powered surround sound earphones, as well.

Powering the glasses is, of course the Android-based compact controller that can not only stream movies and games, but can also browse the web, play Flash content, or check emails. Its got 1GB internal memory, expanded with a in-the-box 4GB microSDHC card.

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is showcased at Gitex 2012 this week. If you are interested, go have a look at it yourself – it’s very close to the Hall 4 entrance. It costs $699.
