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.

#GlyphStories

  • 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."

Reviewed.com – 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."

TheVerge.com

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

Engadget

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

The avegant team

Passion for amazing experiences.

Our team is young enough to dream big and experienced enough to create never-before-seen technology. Born from a dedication to near-eye displays, Glyph was developed by our tight-knit, engineering-driven team.

Dr. Allan Evans, our CTO, initially created the technology in a US government lab. Together with Dr. Neil Welch, our VP of Engineering, and Edward Tang, they built the initial prototypes and refined the technology.

Our wide knowledge base, deep experience, and unyielding passion for creating life-changing technologies drive our work every day.
