Epson is a global imaging and innovative leader which has launched the most radical and innovative personal display devices ever – Epson MOVERIO BT-100, the see-through mobile viewer. I was pleased to be invited to attend the launch of Epson’s latest breakthrough technological innovation last week at Ion Sky.

Upon entering Ion Sky, the ambience lifted up my mood, with the breath-taking scenery, and I felt refreshed after a long day of work.

Random photos were taken before the launch commenced...

Against the bright background, our faces seemed so dark.

Lastly a group picture with my clique (Terence, Hong Peng and Sweetie)

There was a special dance segment, where there were dancers wearing the MOVERIO BT-100. When they did their performance, it showed us that even utilizing this device for various functions such as providing online entertainment, we are still be able to view our immediate surrounding.

Melody Chen was the host of the day... She was wearing the sleek-looking MOVERIO BT-100, when she gave her hosting speech on stage.
