Product will have a Kickstarter campaign later in January
Avegant has announced that its wearable display will be unveiled at CES 2014. The display is called the Glyph and will use a virtual retina display. The headset will beam images directly into the eyes. One of the hallmarks of the device is said to be lightweight and a power miserly nature.
It would be easy to mistake the Glyph for headphones, and they can be used for audio only like headphones. In video mode, the screens are located on the headband. The display uses custom optics and micro mirrors with LEDs focused on the retina to give a vivid image.
The audio is handled by 40mm drivers. Power for the device comes from an internal battery. The battery should last for as long as three hours per charge. While the Glyph will be seen at CES 2014, the product is going to be on Kickstarter later in January trying to raise money to come to market. A set will cost $500 for Kickstarter buyers reports GSM Arena.
