Virture creates immersive smart glasses

Product of the day

Viture, the startup making a new era of immersive mobile extended reality (XR) possible, has reached a milestone on Kickstarter, raising over $2.45 million for the Viture One.

These next-generation glasses allow wearers to stream and game anywhere with an immersive, spatial sound experience on a virtual 120-inch screen.

The Viture One is now one of Kickstarter’s most funded products in the XR category, surpassing a previous record set by Oculus, which raised $2.43 million on the crowdfunding platform and was later acquired by Facebook. . The Viture Kickstarter campaign officially ends on May 25. By pledging the campaign now, backers can save up to $150 off the XR eyewear’s $549 MSRP and be among the first to own the Viture One in October 2022.

Gone are the days when gamers wore bulky VR headsets and bent over uncomfortably while playing on handheld devices. Weighing just 78g, Viture One delivers a portable cloud gaming experience with an oversized virtual screen. With remote play to stream Playstation, Steam and Xbox games from the cloud and the ability to connect to a Steam Deck or Nintendo Switch, gamers can enjoy their games anywhere, anytime. The Viture One XR glasses are also the first with a tint-changing film. Wearers can easily adjust the brightness and background settings with just the press of a button to get the best picture quality, day or night.

“Handheld gaming is on the rise, and we wanted to be the first XR solution that really made sense to gamers – something that looked great, was sleek, lightweight, and affordable while handling all AAA games on the go” , says David Jiang, co-founder and CEO of Viture. “The Viture One will be to XR what the iPhone was to smartphones.”

Viture collaborated with Layer, one of the world’s most prestigious design studios, to design the Viture One, creating stylish and comfortable XR glasses that people will want to wear every day. The design isn’t just for aesthetic purposes, it’s meant to feel like normal sunglasses, with technical features. Equipped with intelligent heat release technology, the temperature of the smart glasses stays below 86° at all times, so wearers can comfortably enjoy hours of gaming.

Whether it’s handling a AAA game or watching a 3D movie, the Viture One is more than capable of the task. The ultra-thin glasses can magnetically connect to the Viture One neckband, which provides battery power, onboard controls, and access to any app on the native app store. The smart glasses and neckband combination provides optimal cloud gaming and remote play with PlayStation or PC anytime, anywhere. The combo is also compatible with USB and Bluetooth devices, including external hard drives, game controllers, keyboards and mice, and supports wireless projection like AirPlay, Miracast and Chromecast.

Powered by an all-in-one operating system, Viture One Neckband includes almost all major cloud gaming and video streaming services pre-installed:

“Viture believes extended reality is the future of immersive mobile technology,” says co-founder Emily Wang. “Viture One harnesses the power of cloud computing to deliver an out-of-the-box, entertainment-focused experience. It took a decade of planning and will be the first of many innovations to come.
