These are just some of the many head-mounted displays (HMDs) available now or coming to market soon that focus primarily on one very distinct technology: virtual reality (VR). However, what would happen if a HMD that was capable of VR also looked towards stereoscopic movies, high quality audio and other media? Avegant’s Glyph is the exact answer to that question."
