Avegant is a consumer hardware company that is making a wearable device to enable a person to watch 3-D images while that person is mobile. The form factor is a set of headphones, with 2 million software-controlled micro-mirrors on the inside of the headband. Using software to bounce light off the mirrors gives a 3-D effect of having an 80 inch screen 8 feet in front of the viewer, but without the eye fatigue that comes from watching an external 3-D screen. The device will be generally available in September 2015.
Total raised: $33.37M
