Avegant’s Glyph headset has been long in the making, but it finally looks to be ready for action… well, almost.
The unique mash-up of headphone and wearable display is now poised to ship in fall 2015 for $599, or $499 if you pre-order before January 15th. That’s both a long time to wait and more expensive than you might have expected from the Kickstarter campaign, but that patience may just pay off.
Avegant has unveiled the finished design for the Glyph (shown here), and it’s much sleeker than earlier concepts and prototypes would suggest — you’d be hard-pressed to tell that there are eyepieces tucked into the headband.
We’ll give the finished design a try as soon as we can, so watch this space if you’re looking for a video headset that could liven up your commute.
