Boldly go where only Geordi La Forge has gone before. Avegant's Glyph is a Kickstarted mobile personal theater that wears like a combo of over-ear headphones and a Star Trek VISOR. Use it to watch movies, play games, and suck in other HD entertainment on the big screen without actually having the big screen--or any screen--in front of you at all.

The headset connects to most smartphones, tablets, drones, and gaming consoles to create an immersive audio and video experience from anywhere. Home. Hotel room in Gary, Indiana. Seat 17A on a flight from New York to LA. Glyph visuals stream through a pair of viewfinders built into the arc of the headset. In place of a screen, the Glyph uses 2+ million micro-mirrors to reflect light and mimic natural human eyesight. A low-power light source beams the HD images through an optics system, and then onto the micro-mirrors, which shape, focus, and project the picture to your eyes. Avegant says their sight-replication approach not only delivers pixel-free images, but also makes seeing through the Glyph feel more like seeing the action firsthand, rather than watching it from behind a transparent barrier.

The Glyph has been designed to pair its clean, HD video with rich, hi-res audio as well. So you can use them just to listen to music on the rare occasions when enshrouding yourself in Game of Thrones and Pokemon Go aren't options.
