Virtual glasses

A while back I made a post about how keen I was to see the Vuzix glasses. After they were made available I did a bit more research, and it turns out there are other, possibly better options.

Carl Zeiss Cinemizer OLED 1280×720 (720p reported), OLED, 35 deg FOV, $515, HDMI 1.4, 45inch @ 6 feet, headtracking optional
Vizux VR1200 852×480,  LCD, 35 deg FOV, $600, VGA, DVI & USB, 75inch @ 10 feet, headtracking included


After comparing the Carl Zeiss to the Vuzix options I can only conclude, if you’re in the market for a set of virtual glasses, the Carl Zeiss are the better option. Not only are they OLED but the resolution is massively better! Yes the Zeiss don’t have the trendy sport shade look that you can wear in the train or whatever. But for what I’d use it for that’s not a show stopper.

  1. I havent been actively maintaining this blog for a while. But I did recently see a review on the Carl Zeiss glasses. Apparently they are cr*p. Pity, I was hoping someone would finally make an affordable and quality product. These appear to be neither.
