Epson MoverioEpson Japan introduced today the so-called Moverio, which is a see-through 3D head-mounted display (HMD) and according to the company the first of its kind. The Moverio itself is a mix between NEC’s transparent HMD Tele Scouter and Sony’s cool 3D OLED head mounted display HMZ-T1.

Moverio users will experience what it is like to watch 3D (or 2D) pictures on a virtual 80-inch display that is 5m away – yet at the same time they will be able to see what’s happening around them in the real world. In addition to the display, users get a small controller that offers 1GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot.
