The prototype device resembles a pair of futuristic glasses with blue LED light illuminating the front and side of the glasses similar to the device Cyclops wears. The device utilises two OLED displays, one for each eye, transmitting 720P video to each display. The prototype also features a virtual 5.1 surround audio system. There is also a simple slider to adjust the distance between the user’s eyes and the screen for optimal 3D immersive experience.

However as far as this device looks like a pair of glasses, the device is unable to stay on the user’s head on its own and requires the user to hold it. Hence, more work has to be done to improve the comfort of the glasses. Users would have an option to choose between 3D Televisions or 3D head-mounted devices in future
