BOSSNEL X1 Video Glasses
The BOSSNEL X1 is essentially a set of video glasses that does offer some elements of virtual reality. At its heart, it is a personal movie theater that is capable of showing a 100″ TV screen from just 10 ft away. But it also has android built in and some head tracking options. While not a full VR headset it might be OK for people without a smartphone to play mobile VR games.
Taking a look at this headset for it’s stats it is very run of the mill. With a 720p resolution only, but it does have a very unusual 3 LCD display onto a mirror projection. Those lights on the front? Those are the light of 2 of the LCD screens inside. It all comes together to make a very unusual set of video glasses all wrapped up in a very odd headset. It’s just a shame this wasn’t full on virtual reality because it would have been amazing.

HeadPlay HD FPV Headset
You can just imagine what we said when we first saw the HeadPlay HD FPV Headset. We thought we might have been looking at a headset that would take the crown away from the 3D Head for the world’s biggest VR headset, but then we quickly realised that it wasn’t a VR headset at all! It’s for flying FPV for drones, quadcopters and planes etc.
OK, so this is not a VR headset but it is a pretty impressive FPV viewer. Ram packed full of features it is a headset any FPV drone flyer will enjoy. With quality, performance and comfort at the forefront, it might look big, but this headset gently rests on the forehead/cheeks by spreading the weight out evenly across the head. It’s a different world to VR or AR headsets, but the tech involved still goes hand in hand. This is yet another area of technology that can only benefit from mobile VR and full VR technology growth and development.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision Goggles
Gear up against the robotic villain Ultron with this wonder of technology. Images will be projected inside the goggles that only the player will see. Use the stylized blaster to shoot your enemies and score points. But be careful because fellow Avengers can also appear. If you hit one, you will lose points!
Yes, it seems we are going backwards in time. When we say we review every HMD and AR/VR device I’m pretty sure this could have been missed. But still, here we are again with something that looks very much like Quest Virtual Reality Worlds. To be honest this AR game’n’ watch headset game is not much better at all! Having said that, with a little imagination and tons of energy to run and jump around, this could be an awful lot of fun. Just don’t expect too much from it. After all, it is just a toy!

A Pseudo-VR Effect
While the Avegant Glyph does fit into the virtual reality headset genre It has more in common with video glasses than an oculus right. With mobile being the key word here, it is a bit of a transformer. It can be both headphones (a fairly decent high-end set) as well as a portable movie theater.
I can’t see the Avegant Glyph threatening the Oculus or Morpheus, but I can see that it would be used by people that like their media on the go. From using it to listen to music, then flipping the headset down to become a private cinema screen. While not as immersive as the Rift it can offer something halfway.
