Now, headset that screens movies straight into your eyeballs

With very little information on the internet about earphone’s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

headphonesResearchers have created a headset due to be released this year, which promises to beam movies, video games or even video calls directly into your eyeballs.

The Glyph headset, from Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Avegant, will create visuals that don’t need a screen-just your retinas and your brain, CNN reported.

A Kickstarter campaign was launched last month and set out to raise 250,000 dollars to bankroll the project. It blew past that mark with ease and, with half a month left, was on the verge of breaking the 1-million-dollar mark Wednesday.

The technology that powers the Glyph centers around a set of 2 million microscopic mirrors — 1 million per eye-that reflect visuals, including 3-D, into the user’s eye.

Avegant says the Glyph that will ship this year will be smaller and lighter than current test versions.

Users will be able to play the video content on their mobile or entertainment device but watch it on the Glyph instead of their device’s screen. The Glyph has a battery life of about three hours.

Here is more in regards to Icom Headsets review our own web site. Glyph looks like a pair of headphones sitting on the user’s head when not in use. In fact, it doubles as a pair of high-end headphones with noise canceling that compares with some of the leading brands on the market, according to Avegant. To add visuals, the user flips down the band over their head, making it an eyepiece.
