    Augmented reality has no clothes

    AR/VR continue to buzz hotly as contenders for the next wave of computing. Tech-industry pundits predict enormous future markets based on speculation that AR will replace the smartphone. The technology looks promising, but other smartphone killers haven’t panned out. Perhaps the industry is again engaged in wishful thinking, declaring AR as the future emperor and dressing it in… Read More

  • Epson and Metaio Get Us Back On Track For Wearable Augmented Reality

    Epson and Metaio Get Us Back On Track For Wearable Augmented Reality

    One of the big promises of a smart-glasses approach to wearable tech was always augmented reality. Context-specific augmented reality was the most interesting though — meaning that the AR content was actually overlaid on the object you were looking at directly and not up in the corner of your eye so you had to look away like in Google Glass. That was the direction I thought it was… Read More

  • Review: Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer

    Review: Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer

    We’ve covered quite a bit of the Epson line and usually found the printers to be solid, respectable, and inexpensive. This latest addition to the WorkForce family, the WP-4540 is arguably all of those with a few caveats. This is a workhorse printer, designed solely to pump out as much paper as possible in an office setting. It’s quite large and heavy, and adding on the extra… Read More

  • Epson Gets In Your Face With Their Android-Powered Moverio Glasses

    Epson Gets In Your Face With Their Android-Powered Moverio Glasses

    It seems like a fact of life — Japan always seems to get the cool stuff first. Take Epson’s Moverio BT-100 wearable display for instance — it launched in Japan last November, and we in the States are only now getting a chance to snap one up. Users can browse the web (with what appears to be the dicey stock browser, yargh), view video content in both 2D and 3D thanks to a pair… Read More

  • Moverio: Epson Announces World’s First See-Through 3D Head-Mounted Display

    Moverio: Epson Announces World’s First See-Through 3D Head-Mounted Display

    Epson Japan announced [JP] the so-called Moverio today, a see-through 3D head-mounted display (HMD), which is the first of its kind, according to the company. Think of it as mix between of NEC’s transparent HMD Tele Scouter and Sony’s cool 3D OLED head mounted display HMZ-T1, powered by Android OS. The Moverio creates the experience of watching 3D (or 2D) pictures on a virtual… Read More

    Bright 3D Drive: Epson Introduces World’s First HTPS-TFT 3D Panel

    Colorio E-820: Epson’s New Photo Printer Is Portable, Comes With Display And Remote Control

    Epson announced [JP] the Colorio E-820 for the Japanese market today, a photo printer and wireless keyboard set somehow designed like a computer from the 1970s or 1990s (at least when looking at the top menu). The newest in a line of similar devices, this 5,760×1,440dpi inkjet printer is suitable for printing both pictures and postcards without a PC. Users can create postcards by choosing… Read More

    Epson Brings Its iPrint App To Android

    Though the digital world seems to be swallowing print alive, there are still some documents that you just want to hold in your hand. But with the speed and ease at which we share information these days, it’s hard for printing to keep up as far as convenience goes. Epson’s tried to find a way to make printing as quick and painless as possible with its iPrint app, which has… Read More

  • Epson And E Ink Show 9.7-Inch ePaper With 2,400 x 1,650 Resolution

    Electronic paper as a technology somehow evolves relatively slowly, but it evolves. Today Epson and E Ink announced they have co-developed a new ePaper display that’s sized at 9.68 inches and boasts 2,400 x 1,650/300 dpi quality. By way of comparison: the Kindle DX (9.7 inches) comes with 1,200 x 824 pixel resolution at 150 ppi. Read More

  • Review: Epson 635 All-in-One Inkjet Printer

    Short Version: All-in-Ones are the merkins of the tech world: everyone needs one but no one wants to talk about them. That’s why I’m proud to lift my head high and say, unequivocally, that Epson has ironed out all of the kinks that come with this kind of printer and, in the process, built a handsome and usable device for home, office, or home office. Add in two-sided printing… Read More

  • Contest: For You, My Friend, An Epson WorkForce 635

    What could be better on a fine morning like this than an Epson WorkForce 635 all-in-one printer. This printer does it all, including scan, fax, print, and solve many of the world’s pressing problems including global warming, Mideast Peace, and how to get the fine hairs of a Jack Russell’s fur out of a wool coat. Take your productivity to new heights with the WorkForce 635, the… Read More

  • Back To School: Printers

    Your goal in school is to use your own printer as little as possible. Most schools have their own black and white printers on call 24/7 but sometimes you may need to print out a few snapshots for friends or a nice color cover for your last-minute essay on fish farming in ancient Mesopotamia as it relates to Shakespeare’s plays. My goal with creating this guide is to offer you a few… Read More

  • The Epson PictureMate Show combines a digital photo frame and printer

    The new Epson PictureMate Show could be the finest example of technical convergence that you will never use. It brings the two worlds of digital photography into one convenient device. Too bad that it will probably sit unused like most digital photo frames and 4 x 6 printers after the novelty wears off. Read More

  • Epson develops world's first 4K-compatible HTPS TFT LCD panel for 3LCD projectors

    In June, Epson said it has begun mass-production of the world’s first HTPS-TFT panel boasting WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200 pixels). And today, five months later, the same company announced [press release in English] what it claims is the world’s first 4K-compatible HTPS (high-temperature polysilicon) TFT LCD panel for 3LCD projectors.

  • Epson Japan announces Dreamio projector with built-in DVD player

    Only very few home electronics companies dare selling projectors housing a DVD player. There’s a good reason for this: The things aren’t really a picnic for the eyes, as this example from last month shows. And even established brands like Epson fail to deliver well-designed hardware in this niche. Case in point: Their new dreamio EH-DM30 [JP]. Read More

  • Colorio Me E-800: Epson Japan to roll out postcard printer/photo frame hybrid

    Epson Japan has today added three new mobile projectors [JP] to their Endeavor series, which targets small businesses in particular. The 3LCD devices will go on sale in Nippon between the end of this month and the middle of October. And prices are quite decent. Read More

  • Review: Epson Workforce 600 All-In-One Printer

    The last Epson printer I reviewed, the Artisan 800, was a work of art. The Workforce 600 is the art of work. See what I did there? To be clear, there is little to say about besides the speeds and feeds. A printer is a printer is a printer, no matter how printer manufacturers like to spice things up with claims of ink price or pages per second. That said, I’m fairly impressed by the… Read More
