Avegant Video Headset
The world's first personal theater brings big-screen entertainment to your personal space. The Avegant Video Headset is a personal home cinema and headphones rolled into one. Using patented Retinal Imaging Technology, two lenses project video images directly from a smartphone, laptop or gaming console onto your retina, providing HD quality in a very comfortable way. View all your favorite entertainment in vivid detail on this video headset, at home or at 30,000 feet.
Avegant’s Retinal Imaging Technology recreates natural sight to deliver incredibly crisp, clear images. A low-power light-source beams HD imagery through a set of optics onto millions of microscopic mirrors, which shape and focus the picture, projecting it directly to you. There’s no screen. Your eyes receive complete, pixel-free images for effortless viewing.
Set up is quick and easy. The Avegant Video Headset plugs into almost any device with a video out, such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and game systems, directly or with a simple adapter, and delivers your existing content in a way you’ve never experienced before: lifelike, crystal clear, brilliant.
Watch all of your existing content such as movies, TV, sports, and music videos via downloads and popular streaming video apps such as Amazon Video, Netflix, HBO GO, Youtube, and Vimeo.

I didn't care for head tracking or 3D immersion or flying drones or anything fancy. I just wanted an amazing personal theater with good sound.
It is with a heavy heart that I write here that the Glyph is not yet living up that dream. Having read countless reviews on the Glyph, I had heard of some issues, but I was hoping that Avegant would release a second iteration sometime. Sadly, they seem to be focusing on their light field technology instead of the Glyph. Alas, I went ahead and finally decided to buy my Glyph and see if it would live up to my purposes.
* This thing is beautiful. It looks and feels like the product was made by Apple. Fantastic packaging, quality materials, everything solid.
* When you finally manage to tweak the screen to your liking, it's a gorgeous viewing experience. I would just lay back on my bed and watch House of Cards for hours and it looks like I'm viewing a 50" screen from 7 feet away.
* The audio is fantastic. I'm not an audiophile but I felt immersed while viewing.
* The weight. People had mentioned it's heavy, and yes, it is. You can mitigate this weight by using the head strap or just laying down, but it's a solid product.
* Adjusting the display. Many folks have complained about this and it's true: it takes a while to get the display just right. Even when I found I had arrived at the perfect location, I would still find myself tweaking the focus or eye portals during a show.
* This is not designed for people with massive heads. I have a 72mm interpupillary distance, which is at least 7mm larger than anyone else I know, and even with the portals shifted to the furthest point away from each other, I could never see the full screen in both eyes. I felt like I was regularly fighting to see the whole screen. It was small, but super annoying.
* The left audio channel buzzing/humming sound. This is the reason that I am actually returning my Glyph, because it was defective. I thought perhaps the buzzing was coming because I was charging and watching at the same time, but even when I disconnected both the iPhone and Glyph from charging and was running both on battery, I could still hear this buzzing in the left audio channel. Several other reviews online had talked of this, and while it again is not super obnoxious, it really does destroy the experience, especially if you're watching a scene where there's a serious quiet moment.
* Difficult to find information online. Amazon sells both the Glyph and the Glyph Founder's Edition, but what is the difference? I tweeted Avegant to ask them, but they did not respond and it's been several days. I also tried to create an account on their online forum, but I've been waiting for approval for a week as well.
I think the idea of what Avegant is doing is fantastic, and ideally a perfect world would involve some form of embedded computer with perhaps some remote control or interface to the OS that would allow me to choose Netflix, Hulu, etc rather than just using the Glyph as an extra TV screen. But that would also add more weight, which is something we would definitely want to avoid. I also would advise that Avegant find a way to get that screen to 1080p. It's subtle at this point, but when I would use the Glyph at 720p and then watch the same clip on my iPad 9.7, the difference in quality was obvious.
So that would be my advice to Avegant:
* Make it lighter
* Support 1080p or higher.
* Make it self-contained so I don't _need_ to have an iPhone or iPad or something else to hook it up to. I'm sure some fork of Android would do the job.
* Support people with bigger heads! Perhaps just make the little eye portals bigger?
That's pretty much it. The device is beautiful, the idea is fantastic, and I suspect Avegant will do great things with their light field technology, but the current v1 of the Glyph is just not there yet.
The second problem is that when you finally make your adjustments to the viewer, and find that perfect sweet spot to see the video on the screen; there’s the problem of looking at the the side corners of the screens. The image straight ahead is perfect, but when you look to the sides, it’s a little blurry until your eyes take time to strain to adjust.
This product would be 100% revolutionary if those two problems were taken into account. Larger eye viewers, and lower brightness control. This is worth experiencing, but at the same time, I can’t really recommend anyone to spend this kind of money on these heavy flaws.
I had to edit this message because I forgot to add that it’s supposed to be compatible with Apple products, but the app doesn’t exist in the App Store anymore. What the heck?!
