Royole-X, The Smallest Foldable Smart Mobile Theatre, Is Here
Not satisfied with the privacy for your home cinema viewing? Try the Royole-X, a new personal theater headset touted as the “world’s first foldable audio and video headset.”
The headset, which is currently on display at the CES Unveiled event, features a superthin and flexible AMOLED display at only 0.01 mm thick. According to Royole, the headset has 3,300 PPI, more than 10,000:1 contrast ratio and a 24bit RGB color mode.
Unlike a VR headset, there is a fixed screen with fairly limited field of view — but once your eyes adjust, the screen appears to be really crisp and sharp, providing an all-immersive experience. Further, the foam padding around the eyes makes you feel comfortable.
You can’t wear glasses with the headset though, and to help mitigate that, there are a couple of dials underneath the headset using which you can control the focus and interpupillary distance.
The headphones are designed to have great noise-cancelling properties with a rating of up to 22dB apparently. They offer support for WiFi sharing (for Airdrop files for example), wireless streaming, a HDMI and a USB port. A separate control box is also available which you can store up to 64GB of media.
The Royole-X packs a 6000 mAh standalone battery, which should offer 5-7 hours of video playback. The headset is however a bit pricey at $699. Interested in buying one?
