- Operating altitude: 0 to 33,000ft (0m to 11000m)
- See-through monochrome display (roughly equivalent of a 2.7″ display at 40cm)
Will it work for people who need corrective glasses?
- If you’re farsighted (if you use reading glasses for example) then it will work – the image appears to be around 10 feet (3.5 metres) away and there is no need for any corrective glasses.
- If you’re nearsighted (if you need glasses to see long distances) then unfortunately you might need to wear contact lenses to be able to use Project Obsidian.
We are working with our optics supplier to be able to eventually offer corrective lenses, but this will not be available in the near future.
How much is it?
We’re still in the design phase and will announce more details shortly.
Will it fit into my helmet?
We are designing Project Obsidian to be able to fit in most full-face skydiving helmets, including the new impact-rated models.
I wear an open-face helmet. Will I be able to use Project Obsidian?
Due to the design of the glasses, there is a large gap between the face and the sunglasses like normal non-wraparound glasses. This might cause issues with excessive air flow to the eyes. However, we have included holes in the temples so you can secure the glasses around your head with a strap. So if you can cope with the airflow issues you will be able to use it. However, we recommend wearing a full-face helmet to avoid these issues.
What’s the battery life? What are the technical specifications?
We will release more detailed technical specifications soon. Watch this space!
