What comes with a preorder?

Avegant is currently in the process of refining their Glyph Alpha prototype into the consumer version conceptually rendered above. Those who pre-order a Glyph will get a lightweight, ergonomic device tuned for consumer use and with both support and a warranty. It'll be identical to the consumer device on store shelves — only delivered far before we start fulfilling those orders. Be the first in your community to start your Glyph story.

  • The Commuter

    Using the Glyph from the commuter's perspective.

"It's quite amazing to realize that you aren’t staring at a screen, and that the projected image is reflecting off the back of your retina. Since it projects into each eye independently, you can view images and video in full 3-D." – Editor's Choice Award at CES

"The picture I see already looks beautiful: high-res, colorful, and accurate, with none of the screen-door effect or pixilation of a device like the Rift."

"...the company's latest reveal has us throwing balls of cash at the screen."


" eyes weren't strained and I actually could let my pupils comfortably wander and focus on different parts of the image"
