While Virtual and Augmented Reality are quickly becoming household terms, most developers believe it's an either-or situation. Luckily though, there is a device that can do both very well – Epson’s Moverio BT-200 smart glasses. These binocular see-through glasses are a perfect platform for AR, but are also extremely capable of handling VR. There is even a Unity3D Android Plugin for the Moverio to jump-start your development.

In this presentation you will discover the following:

• A quick intro covering the capabilities and features specific to the Moverio BT-200

• Best ways to code UI and 3D interaction with Unity3D for Head Mounted Displays, and Moverio’s hand controller

• An intro to Mixed Reality, Blackboxing, and adding true Augmented interactions with real world scenes

• Some best practices and research from a top Head Mounted Display developer on how to make amazing experiences

• How to setup your scene for Stereoscopic 3D, and some best practices for setting up the proper Field of View and how to display UI within a Stereoscopic system

• Unity3d and Android integration and how to port your previous apps over to the Moverio

• A quick start on using the Unity3D Android Plugin and a walkthrough of the Tutorial Code
