Avegant Glyph review

The Avegant Glyph is a tethered virtual reality headset made by Avegant, a manufacturer based in San Francisco in the US.  The head-mounted display is also known as the Avegant Video Headset.

This tethered VR headset features a unique design, with built-in HD audio, and no screen. Indeed, Avegant invented a Retinal Imaging Technology. The display mimics natural eyesight through LED projection onto microscopic mirrors. This technology enables the user to be aware of what is going on around him, and still enjoy the VR experience.

The Avegant Glyph plugs into any HDMI-supported device with a micro-HDMI cable.

Glyph main features

  • Patented Retinal Imaging Technology: there is no screen on this display. Avegant projects LED into millions of microscopic mirrors. There is no pixel. According to the manufacturer, it is effortless to watch VR, it brings better comfort and has no side-effects.
  • Access to various online content platforms: an HDMI cable connects the device to any computer or gaming console, tablet and smartphone (with an adapter). It is possible to watch films, play VR games and download and stream online contents this way.
  • IPD adjustment: adjustable optics allow the user to compensate for most eye prescriptions, so users may enjoy VR without eyeglasses.
  • Built-in HD headphones: for a more immersive user experience.
