Sound and image quality are incredibly important in many aspects of technology, especially for things like watching a movie, listening to music and playing video games. There are many different types of ways to interact with technology, with each model having new features than the one previous. Many people have televisions, computers, laptops, smartphones, video game consoles and other electronics found in their home, but what about gaming headsets?
The Glyph headset is a new type of experience all together. It works as a headset that has a high focus on sound and on images as well. The Avegant Glyph allows the image to be directly in front of the users’ eyes that still provides stark image quality.
The glyph is truly a hybrid of sound and image, that makes viewing, gaming and listening to music all possible on one seriously sleek device. The Glyph distinguishes itself as a personal mobile theater. It can be used anywhere, seamlessly and effortlessly. All you need is a simple HDMI input to display anything from your content library. Your library of content including movies and gaming can use your smartphone, laptop or computer for content. The way that the media is shown to the viewer gives them Point of View imaging, which makes the stories come alive and interactive, rather than feeling just like a viewer.
The Glyph has not experienced a conventional way of being brought to market as it is actually part of a kick-starter program. The initial goal was to raise $50,000 for further research and development. They have exceeded their goal by raising over $1.5 million. Financial backers get to feel as though they contributed to the development of new technology and may get to try out prototypes offering feedback helping to influence overall design. The price for a Glyph has not been yet determined because the product is still undergoing development changes and is not available to the general public.
Personal media headsets may completely revolutionize the way people interact with their content. It will keep people in touch with their technology resulting in a personal media center no matter where you go. The future of media looks to be turning the focus away from entertainment for groups and is concentrating more on the solitary user experience.
