Epson yesterday held an event at the Mandarin Oriental, right next to the track of this weekend’s night race to talk about how their technology helps to drive the Mercedes AMG Petronas team, and also to show off some of their latest products. Here are some images from the event.
A set of lightweight, water-resistant fitness trackers, the Runsense sports monitors look fairly sporty and feature GPS trackers to help measure distance and pace. There’s even a built-in Smart Stride Sensor that learns your running technique and helps to calibrate your stride as you go.
The Pulsense Fitness trackers look slim and stylish – and much like the other fitness trackers on the market, these too offer heart rate tracking, sleep quality assessment, and exercise intensity tracking. It’s meant to be paired with the Pulsense View mobile app or website.
The latest version of the Moverio is quite a bit thinner and less clunky than the previous versions, and seems quite a bit like Google Glass to be honest. It delivers an augmented reality experience and is able to deliver 3D video, as well as project a qHD virtual screen. What's the experience like? We've reviewed the previous edition in depth.
This is a six-color ink tank printer that does borderless prints with a resolution of 5,760dpi. It features the ability to print direct to CD/DVD surface, has PictBridge support and a direct USB 2.0 port. You can read more about the Epson L850 in our article.
Taking up a fairly large area in the room was the SC-F2000 Garment printer, where staff were demonstrating how designs could be easily printed on T-shirts. Thanks to the use of the PrecisionCore TFP printhead, the SC-F2000 can print a t-shirt in just 27 seconds!
Remember what Panasonic did at Broadcast Asia this year? Well, Epson showed that they can do just the same, using seven of their EB-Z series 3LCD projectors to demonstrate a projection mapping display on a Formula One race car.
Finally, this was probably the largest draw of the day, with a full racing simulator hooked up to the EB-1430Wi ultra-short throw projector to demonstrate how the projector could handle the response rate required of the fast paced game.
