The Making of Avegant Glyph

Screen displays have been getting smaller through the years and closer to our eyes. The only problem with this technology is the image quality. Avegant found a solution to this issue using a technology that mimics the way humans naturally see light. With the help of a Virtual Retinal Display, the company figured out how images are projected directly onto a person?s retina. The result creates sharp and stark images like you have never seen before.

For two years, Avegant has been working on miniaturizing this technology so people can wear it like a headset at home or anywhere they go. The company has named its finished product as the Glyph, combining extremely sharp imagery, premium noise ? cancelling audio, unique flipdown form. This is a device that will definitely revolutionize personal display technology.

The Glyph was presented at CES 2014. It uses an HDMI input to display files in your library, from movies to Internet streaming and the desktop environment in your computer.
