The Cinera Edge startup has developed a "wearable cinema" - a headset-glasses for watching movies in high quality. The gadget boasts up to 5K resolution and Dolby Surround sound.
Inside the Cinera Edge are two 21mm OLED displays. They have a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which in total brings the picture closer to the level of 5K (in width). The screens provide a 66-degree field of view, which is close to IMAX (70 °). According to the developers, the capabilities of the headset are equivalent to watching a movie on a 300 cm screen from a distance of 20 meters.
The Cinera Edge measures 197 x 207 x 10 mm and weighs 490 grams. The weight is shifted to the sides to make it easier to use the gadget for a long time. The 5200mAh battery lasts for three hours.
Cinera Edge runs Android 7 and supports most of the popular streaming services out of the box, such as Netflix, YouTube, HBO Max, Disney +, Hulu, and Twitch. It also provides support for MicroSD. The Pro also has an HDMI port, which allows it to be connected to virtually any Blu-ray player, computer or console.
In the temple area on the headset there is a touchpad for menu control. Image parameters can be configured individually for each user. The Cinera Edge has already raised $ 325, 000 on Kickstarter, the standard model starts at $ 449 and the Pro version starts at $ 549. Headsets are expected to ship in December this year.
