The Avegant Glyph is a screen that you wear on your face. That’s the simplest way to describe it. The whole device looks like a pair of outsized Beats headphones, complete with a huge chunky body and thick plastic headband; the parts that go on your ears are indeed headphones, but that huge headband hides a 720p DLP screen (though "screen" isn’t quite right, as we’ll see) and the optics necessary.

The year was just that jam-packed with quality titles.
