Edward Tang, Avegant’s Chief Systems Officer explains more “The experience that we’re replicating is the on-the-go theater experience. It’s not VR. Instead, it feels like you’re in a movie theater.” Check out the video below to learn more.
The Glyph is mediawear, a new category of personal entertainment technology designed with go-anywhere portability and amazingly precise video capability. The Glyph sits on your head like a pair of headphones, and when flipped down over your eyes, it becomes a personal theater for viewing all types of content from your mobile devices. Put it on, and you get the idea in seconds. It’s that intuitive. Avegant’s patented Retinal Imaging Technology uses advanced optics and an array of two million mirrors to project images directly to your eyes to recreate natural sight. It’s more like seeing than watching—and far better than any other display technology. Prepare to be amazed.
Sophisticated, understated, elegant. The Glyph’s streamlined design communicates its extraordinary abilities at first glance. The mediawear delivers audio, or vision plus audio, in a familiar form that goes anywhere with you—a distinct advantage over other head-mounted displays. Put the Glyph on, and you’ll get the idea in seconds. It’s that intuitive.
