The Avegant Glyph is pretty ridiculous looking, kind of uncomfortable and pretty awesome. The headset blast 720p HD video directly into your retinas. Dieter Bohn breaks down his experience with it in this review.

    saw them on sale for 599.00 still way to high for my taste.. for that price I'd just get the HTC VIVE and call it a day..

    Is it bad for your eyes?

    Airlines will benefit from this crazy gizmo

    Maybe a bit exspensive at 700 but 350 leaves no room to come down. Right now its at 549, it looks cool and shows a drone but needs to have hatch and pins for varius drone racing frequencies.

    Reminds me of Geordi laforge visor from Star Trek. :b

    Reduce the weight, reduce the price, and you forgot one other thing… reduce the brightness (or provide lower settings).

    I have the Sony HMZ and it is a few years old and thought I would try this new tech out. Incredible sound, video not so good and gave me a headache. Sent it back today after one days use.

    I was so yes I want these – then i heard 720p….. its not full HD?? Sorry – I'll wait until you get 1080p or better yet, a 4k… can you imagen 4k right in front of you… you got the perfect office…

    I used one on a train ride and it was the absolute best. Yeah, you do have to adjust it at start, but my vision sucks and they STILL can adjust it to work without my glasses.

    Got them for my Phantom 4 Pro. So far, so good. Much better than the Fat Shark Dominators, at least as far as clarity goes. No diopters needed. Clarity and brightness are amazing.

    No interest in going blind. I'm almost 40 and I still can see without glasses. I see people who buy themselves and their children VR headsets. Many tell me it affected their eyes so much that they stopped wearing them all together. Their doctors said wearing them for many hours will damage their eyesight. People tell me VR or video headsets is the future for gaming and watching video. I always tell them, I care about my eyes and would rather loose my eyesight naturally.

    So does a google card box look cool on your face?
    What about all the rest of the huge beer box face sets, they cool enough for you to been see in? Idiot review by uncool dude.

    It's cool, but I'm not sure why anyone needs it

  • August 18, 2017 at 4:50 pm

    It's cool I didn't heed my eyes anyways I feel like this is going to create millions of massive eye problems.

  • August 18, 2017 at 4:51 pm

    What about people who suffer with eye problems? What about blue light problems that causes eye strain and insomnia? What about people with photosensitive epilepsy? What about Irland syndrome? How much damage does that after Vision have an effect on your eyes? There's too many questions that hasn't been answered

    people, this is designed for fpv drones, it's the remote viewing of the drone, the reason is so expensive is because of it's hd low latency screen, not to mention it looks cool

  • September 10, 2017 at 12:55 am

    Well, they don't really need to make those adjustments if your already buying then regardless of those complaints.

  • October 4, 2017 at 1:41 am

    I think it looks awesome. I’d use it all day long!!!

  • November 10, 2017 at 11:47 pm

    Damn it only plays 720p id get it if it played 1080p

  • December 25, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    Has to be bad for your eyes…

    What if you use glasses?

  • January 6, 2018 at 1:40 pm

    yet again another reviewer completely failed to cover the pc desktop experience

  • April 29, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    After looking at tons of vr/ar/mr headsets and glasses I can say that this one does not look weird to me.

  • June 17, 2018 at 5:03 pm

    The health risks for your eyes on this device???
    I want responses

  • June 18, 2018 at 10:45 am

    I can safely say I will never get one of these things. My eyesight has deteriorated a lot since becoming a designer and spending my life staring at a screen a couple of feet away from my face – I can only imagine how much this would mess my sight up after that.
