Real Virtuality Goggles. 2005

Super-iR is made for those who want to see the world differently, - painted in fresh new colors. With Super-iR you will be fascinated by what you see: the world as you know it will be looking absolutely different. Our helmets are equipped with the brand-new system of Real VirtualityR, which changes "real" world around us into a virtual one, and does it without a computer and in real time!
The heart of Super-iR is a microchip developed by our company on the basis of the newest technologies. It allows real-time (without delay) proccessing of a video signal and appliying different effects on it. Other system components are: a video camera with a "human" angle of view, and a pair of exclellent image quality micro-displays. The whole system is assembled inside a lightweight helmet that comfortably fits any head. The helmet is absolutely autonomous and is powered by standard AA batteries, which can run it for few hours.
