Sol Reader’s E-Ink VR Headset is For Hands-Free Reading
The companies are looking for ways to take things to the next level with advancements in virtual reality & portability. E-readers are a great example of this because they take a classic format & redefine how we interact with it.
There’s some give & take (and mixed reactions regarding these advancements), there’s no denying the accessibility, storage capacity & portability that products like the Kindle have brought to the table.
The reading technology company Sol has dedicated itself to building the glasses that take cues from both e-readers & VR: The Sol Reader, which the label built to help make reading more immersive & block distractions.
These glasses have two 1.3in, 256×256 e-ink displays in the lenses, which are lit from the sides via LEDs & The ambient light is monitored by a light sensor that automatically adjusts the glasses.
Through the app, you can utilize the 64MB of storage to upload your books & (up to) 25 hours of battery life should provide plenty of reading time in between charges.
It included the glasses as the Bluetooth remote that you can use to navigate through the user interface & a charging cable. The Sol Reader comes in four colors, including black, silver, rose gold, & dark blue.
