Shiftall MeganeX

The Shiftall MeganeX are lightweight VR glasses that feature 1.3" 120Hz 2560x2560 OLED microdisplays and achieve an ultra-compact form and weight (250 grams). The display is made by Kopin and LakeSide Optoelectronics, and features Kopin's double-stack OLED architecture.

The MeganeX is based on a Snapdragon XR1 chipset and also supports SteamVR via a USB connection.

It is likely that Shiftall (a subsidiary of Panasonic that specializes at quick development and small-volume production) will not produce a large number of these. The company originally planned to ship the MeganeX for $800 in the spring of 2022, but in early 2023 it says it will ship it by March 2023, and the price was increased to $2,000 as Kopin's low production yields increased the cost of the microdisplays
