Meanwhile, the Chinese technology giant and electronics company Epson recently devised a way to directly connect a DJI drone remote controller to Epson Moverio BT-300FPV smart glasses. With the help of an augmented reality flight simulator by Y Media Labs, the integration of the smart glasses and remote control allows users to simulate a drone flight for rehearsal purposes.

This reduces the risk of crashing the drones and as a result, extend the shelf life of the device. The app will be available starting November 6.
