Epson Moverio Smartglasses enhance F1 experience

Augmented reality strengthens Grand Prix trackside narrative

Epson recently introduced its Moverio smart glass technology to guests of the Formula One World Champions Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team at Albert Park in Melbourne.

The smart glass technology enabled the F1 experience to be augmented by user-selected, contextual content spanning video technology explainers to live social media feeds and driver statistics in front of the wearer’s eyes.

The eyewear also allows users to view their surroundings while projected material is overlaid on the lenses, creating the anatomy of a pit stop to be displayed to guests in slow motion or the race day roles of engineering staff to be explained.

After debuting in Melbourne, the Moverio garage tour will continue to be a regular feature of the Mercedes AMG Petronas experience for the team’s VIP guests at remaining 20 races of the season.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
