Home VR is going to hit the mainstream big-time this decade, and personally, I can’t wait. If you’re yet to experience the insane ability this rising technology has to fully immerse you in a different time and place, you’re in for a treat. And if the giant, chunky facemasks you’re seeing in current-gen systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are a bit of a turn-off, Panasonic’s got the antidote for you.
These prototype VR specs are a set of digital John Lennon glasses, with eye cups and solid frame arms heading back to a set of earbuds. They look far less bulky and cumbersome than what you’re used to seeing, and they don’t require you to mess up your ‘do with a headband, but they still deliver UltraHD (at least 4K) resolution, enough to eliminate the “screen door” effect you can get on lower-resolution glasses.
