As more drones take to the sky, we wanted to create a drone piloting experience for DJI using Epson's new augmented reality glasses.


A new way to fly drones

Flying a drone is tricky, especially when the pilot has to look down at the controls on their phone or tablet. Bringing together EPSON’s smart AR glasses, and DJI’s drone technology, we created SoAR: a revolutionary drone flying experience. 


Hands-free & heads-up is the ideal way to experience aerial AR.

Line-of-sight flight

SoAR gives pilots control of their drone through the Moverio smart glasses. The AR interface for the glasses lets them maintain line-of-sight with their drone at all times.



DJI is the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems, and after a successful engagement, we are their partner for third-party experiences using DJI drones.
