Was this the best product at CES? It could be….
These new virtual reality glasses from Avegant are not like anything else on the market. The main differentiator is that they use a virtual retinal display, projecting images directly on your eyes (rather than the simulated large screen in products like the Oculus); it’s a technology that’s been around since the ’80s, but it’s rarely found in consumer headsets.
And instead of goggles, they look like headphones. In fact, they are headphones — they just tip forward onto your eyes if you want to use them as a headset.
They are completely plug and play. It plugs into any HDMI-supported device and delivers your existing content in a way you’ve never experienced before: lifelike, crystal clear, brilliant. You can watch any type of existing media, including an immersive 360-degree experience and side-by-side 3D, in amazing detail.
Its a hard thing to imagine, but to help, here is a video of the team at Tech Insider trying them out.
