Virtual Reality. Augmented Reality. Moverio is a playground for Innovation.

Virtual and Augmented Reality Solutions are exciting new frontiers for application development. From unbeatable personal entertainment, to applications that streamline the workday, developing for the Moverio will help tech shape the future. 

Epson invites the top four winners from the 2nd phase of this challenge to tweak and perfect their existing beta applications for the final round of the challenge!

The “Epson Moverio Develop the Future App Challenge” began on November 17th, 2014. Over three rounds, developers will have the chance to compete for their share of over $30,000 in cash and prizes.  Winners will also gain key promotional exposure for their apps through Epson’s global marketing channels.

Who can participate?  Only the top 4 winners from Phase 2 of the challenge may compete in the final round.  This includes 2 winners from each of the below categories: 

  • Best Consumer App (Augmented Reality/Gaming)
  • Best Enterprise App  (Distribution/Manufacturing/Medical/Other) 

Missed the chance to participate in the app challenge?  We encourage you to continue to develop your dream app for the Moverio device.  We are constantly looking for top applications on the Moverio App Marketplace to promote and support! 

Details and Prizes


Winners of Round 2 will be invited to compete for two final grand prizes (one winner from each of the two categories). Round 2 winners will have the chance to revise and improve their app and resubmit for consideration for the grand prize.

Apps submitted in Round 3 must include a short demo video (hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku) that walks through the main functionality of the solution via screencase or video for the final submission. The apps must also be resubmitted to Epson’s Moverio Apps Market for release. Note: Certification and Epson Moverio app market release timing may vary depending on the app and when it’s submitted for certification review.

These two grand prize winners will each receive $5500. Grand prize winners will be announced on April 15th, 2015.
