MetaPro Holographic Glasses For VR Like Iron Man

The metaPro holographic glasses present a true virtual reality experience in stylish glasses. Rather than just a tiny screen at the corner of your eye, it offers a more immersive experience, covering the field of vision of ordinary glasses.

[Meta CEO Meron] Gribetz, a neuroscientist, is not very happy with VR and user overload. “I got into this field as a neuroscientist, researching vision and natural user interfaces,” he explained. His goal: create a non-invasive visual interface that is friendly for the brain and avoids cognitive overload.

“The Meta is a natural machine, which uses the things that have evolved to manipulate our environment, namely, our hands. You reach out and you manipulate holograms,” Gribetz said.

Meta is developing a pocket pc with a i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM with 128GB Storage. WiFi is provided using 802.11n. Bluetooth 4.0 is provided for connectivity as well; there is a 32WHr battery. The glasses communicate with the pocket pc by a small wired connections similar to headphones. They have a wifi connection.

If you're thinking that you saw Tony Stark doing the same thing with hand gestures in futuristic films like Iron Man, you're right.

This is the Iron Man embodiment, [Gribetz] said. “The person who produced the video on our website is the same person who designed the user interfaces for the Iron Man franchise — as well as Avengers and others — and is also involved in designing our software.”

Exactly how would MetaPro compare to what Tony Stark could do in Iron Man? “Aside from [Stark not using] a head-mounted display, the difference would not be noticeable, assuming a powerful computer were driving it,” Gribetz said.

Science fiction fans will also recall the overlay specs from Charlie Stross' 2007 novel Halting State and the video glasess from Bruce Sterling's 1988 novel Islands in the Net.

According to Meta's very responsive website, the new metaPro glasses will cost $2985 and will be available in June, 2014.
