The Avegant Glyph is the most exciting product we’ve seen since the Oculus Rift. We’re not picking favorites at this point, but the small form factor of the Glyph along with its virtual retina display imagery have us intrigued. What the VRD basically means is that the movie or game will be right there in your face, but you won’t see a single pixel. The image is strong and seamless. Meanwhile, the headset incorporates strong audio, so you’re essentially wearing an all-in-one movie theater on your face.
This has the endorsement of Netflix and the guys behind Second Life, so you know it’s gonna be sweet. It maybe just a tad behind the Rift in coming to market, but considering the enormous success of the ongoing Kickstarter campaign, we’re not sure if that’ll be the case for long. With 28 days to go, the Glyph has buried its puny $250k funding goal and is at $557,853 at the time of this writing. This is, needless to say, an early favorite for the 2014 Kickstarter Project of the Year.
