Two million micro-mirrors deliver super-sharp and realistic pictures.

Beaming light directly into your eyes probably isn’t the kind of thing you would normally do, but in the case of Avegant‘s virtual retinal display (VRD) device, we think you should make an exception. It uses two million micro-mirrors to deliver super-sharp and realistic images, which your brain interprets as if seen on an 80-inch panel viewed from eight feet away.

While the prototype in the video below may look little bit clunky; the good news is that the production model, which is set to ship in early 2014, will weigh significantly less, be much smaller, as well as include an integrated sound and battery pack. The HMD, which can handle 240Hz content (and beyond), will deliver sharp and realistic footage regardless of the device or quality of the stream.

Expect the device to work in a wide variety of contexts such as web browsing, video games, TV, and movies. There could also be plans for the device to be used to look around the stadium while you watch a football game, or see a local area first-hand before you book your holidays there.
