We’re starting to feel worried for old-school movie theaters. First, people started getting DVDs delivered to their houses, then everyone subscribed to movie streaming services. And now? Technology like the Cinera Headset is aiming to put the old cineplex out of business.
How, exactly, can a headset beat out the good-old movie theater? By outperforming on quality across the board. This gigantic contraption boasts an IMAX-like experience courtesy its dual 2.5K display and mega-wide 66-degree field of view. In plain English, that means this device has a resolution that is 3-times better than your normal movie theater. As if that wasn’t enough, the Cinera Headset allows users to install streaming services directly onto the device thanks to its Android operating system. Not feeling like a movie? Users can just as easily stream video games from their PC, Playstation, and Xbox. The anticipated release date for this headset is sometime in November. It is expected to retail for just south of $1,000.
