Epson invites everyone to the picnic for geeks 2018
A picnic with augmented reality instead of kebabs.
Joke. I think it will not be difficult to find kebabs and other delicacies - there will be plenty of food outlets at the festival. This year the Moscow festival will be held on August 11 and 12 at the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve. Traditionally, Epson tries to attend it with our augmented reality binocular video glasses. At our booth we will show them video glasses. We already told about points Epson Moverio BT-300 in a post on Habré, therefore I will not repeat.
