NGRAIN’s Industrial Application will be Showcased on Moverio™ BT-200 Smart Glasses at 2015 International CES Conference


2015 International CES, Sands Expo Booth #74728 – January 5, 2015 – NGRAIN today announced its collaboration with Epson America to develop a connected 3D augmented reality industrial application for the Epson Moverio™ BT-200 smart glasses. NGRAIN is providing the first true optical see-through augmented reality application on the Metaio platform for industrial and manufacturing environments on Epson hardware.

This advanced manufacturing aid enables mobile workers on the shop floor to monitor, control, and optimize manufacturing activities in real-time through an interactive, wearable heads-up display. The NGRAIN industrial augmented reality platform accurately overlays interactive 3D content on top of objects in the real world and connects to live enterprise data sources such as ERP, CRM, PLM, and SCADA industrial control systems. Now, employees will be able to familiarize themselves with the parts of a complex assembly with a simple tap, call up work orders and inventory information in real-time, and get step-by-step guidance on how to complete procedures using 3D data visualization.

NGRAIN and Epson have worked closely with industry leaders such as Metaio in the development of this industrial application. This application represents the first real-world example of Metaio’s new 1:1 camera calibration capability, which enables accurate optical calibration and registration, showcasing the joint capabilities provided by NGRAIN and Epson to seamlessly mesh 3D graphics with the real world for use in the field.

“NGRAIN is driven to innovate in 3D augmented reality so that our customers eliminate manual or administrative overhead and increase production efficiency. We are committed to the integration of leading technology and data as the Industrial Internet of Things drives industry-wide process improvements more than ever before,” said Gabe Batstone, CEO of NGRAIN. “We are thrilled to work so closely with Epson to showcase the power of true augmented reality on smart glasses.”

“Epson is excited to be working with NGRAIN to help them showcase their compelling application for the Moverio BT-200 smart glasses,” said Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson America.  “The Moverio BT-200 smart glasses provide developers the opportunity to create exciting enterprise and consumer Android-based applications that take advantage of the Moverio platform’s unique ‘look-through’ transparent display capabilities.”

Leveraging Epson’s patented core technologies, the Moverio BT-200 offers an unparalleled binocular smart glasses experience optimized for augmented reality applications. Micro projectors located on each side of the lens project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view over the real-world environment. In addition to the Moverio BT-200’s sensors for head-motion tracking and hands-free navigation, the smart glasses include a front-facing camera for video as well as image capture that detects real-world markers for augmented reality (AR) applications.

NGRAIN will demonstrate its 3D augmented reality solution for industrial use at the 2015 International CES from the afternoon until show closing, Jan. 6-9, at the Sands Expo Booth #74728. For more information visit
