VANCOUVER, British Columbia — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 12, 2014SIGGRAPH 2014, Booth 523 – Epson America today announced its Moverio Developer Program that expands support for Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses developers.

In addition, Epson debuts its Moverio Apps Market where developers can upload and market their unique and ground-breaking applications specifically tailored to the Moverio platform on a global, Epson-branded site. The Moverio Apps Market can be accessed on the Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses via a Wi-Fi connection. The market will offer a variety of free and paid apps available for download.
