Avegant's Virtual Retinal Display projects 3D onto your eyeballs

 Using an array of two million micro mirrors, this dorky-looking pair of spectacles is able to deliver an incredibly sharp virtual 3D experience by projecting two separate images directly onto each of your retinas.

Though it sounds a bit dangerous, Avegant's CEO, Ed Tang, assures the low light shined onto your eyes is in no way damaging to your vision, like lasers can be. Avegant's VRD differs from similar products like the Oculus Rift and the Zeiss Cinemizer OLED in that it uses no screens, since your brain interprets the low-resolution light sources as an 80-inch panel seen from eight feet away. Each projected WXGA (1,280 x 768) image results in twice the resolution of competing HMDs and a seamless, clear and vivid image via precise pixel blending.
