Small screens inches away from your eyes. Light beamed directly at your retinas. At this rate, the next war for cutting-edge display supremacy will be happening on your face. Sometime in the near future, the headgear showdown is going to be the Oculus Rift vs. the just-funded-twice-over Avengant Glyph. Ophthalmologists of the world, prepare!
We last saw this tech back in October, when it was dubbed as the Virtual Retinal Display. A new, sleeker prototype was shown off when a Kickstarter campaign launched two days ago and, faster than you can Double Fine Adventure, the hybrid headphone/display device blew past its funding goal. They asked for $250,000 and are currently at $552,207.
