Pancake lenses with interpupillary distance (IPD) sliders are available for the eReader. The user can adjust the headset to make text visible thanks to its diopter settings. The display on the eReader has a low resolution. Although, upgrading to higher pixels in later generations could solve the low-resolution problem. There are Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity options, as well as two front-lit E-ink displays on display. Additionally, the device has a USB-C connection for charging. The E-Ink headset has a 30-hour battery life.
The Sol E-Reader is made for lying down and reading eBooks or other compatible materials. It is helpful in any circumstance when holding an eReader would be awkward. A wireless controller with page turn buttons is used with the headset. Though the device has less capability than typical VR headsets, it is lighter. Its slower refresh rates on its grayscale panels could occasionally be irritating. It will be challenging to use the headset for any purpose other than reading.
With a wide range of cutting-edge features, headsets have continued to develop. In games, design, the workplace and other applications, several new wearable devices provide immersive virtual or augmented reality. Customers who are interested in a wearable E-ink display are the target market for the headset.
Price & Availability
The Sol E-Ink Reader will be retailing for $350. Although there are no concrete announcements about global availability, it is expected to launch somewhere around Fall 2023 in a few regions.
