REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Avegant today released the final deliverable design of their mediawear device code named the Glyph at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The device is designed as a mobile multimedia headset that seamlessly transitions between audio and video modes.

"We wanted to create a device that holds the aesthetic of current headphone technology while integrating next generation optics for a premium video experience," Bernhard Wildner, lead designer at Avegant said. "With this design, Glyph users will be able to experience their audio, video, and gaming content in a brand new way. It's a device that goes where you go."

Key to the utility of the Glyph is Avegant's patented display technology that uses a micromirror array to deliver an ultra-high quality image. That package is enclosed entirely within the headband of the device.

Avegant will be sharing the design prototype at CES in booth 70048 at the Sands Convention Center. Through January 15th, 2015 the Glyph will be available for preorder for the special price of $499. Following that, preorders will be available for $599.
