The Headset

The headset houses a high-definition camera, OLED screens, and multiple supporting technologies used to capture and display a real-time video feed. The headset is mounted on carrier frames, which enable eSight’s proprietary “bioptic tilt,” a feature that allows the user to shift between viewing modes and engage their peripheral vision.

The Controller

eSight users carry a small, lightweight processing unit that does the real hard work of adjusting every pixel of the video in real time. The Controller also houses the battery, which powers eSight.
