Based on our extensive experience in optics, DreamGlass Air uses the most cutting edge imaging and coating technology with the widest field of view, delivering the most immersive and vivid visuals all the time!
Did you feel eye strain after watching movie on your phone? It is caused by the near distance (~0.3 meter) and the intensive blue light of the phone screen. DreamGlass Air uses advanced optical technology to project contents at meters away, and employs over 10 layers of special optical coatings to reduces blue light and glare, delivering much more comfortable viewing experience.
We really appreciate the help from our backer community, and we value your inputs. That’s why we seize very opportunity to meet our backer in person, showing live demos to him/her, and collecting feedbacks.
Our CEO, Kevin Zhong, met Eliah in Los Angeles on Aug 25th. Eliah is a retired professional gamer, and a super backer who has backed 233 projects on Kickstarter in the past. Eliah liked DreamGlass Air very much and provided a lot of constructive suggestions.
On Sep 7th&8th, we also met with 5 of our backers, Kevin, Glen, Mario, Ben and Krystyn in the Silicon Valley Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum. They all tried our DreamGlass Air and Pro in person, and they all liked it. We'll inform you once we have more opportunities to meet with you in the future. Stay tuned!

We received a lot of request for 6DOF (Degree of Freedom) tracking from our current developer community, and we listened. Here is DreamGlass Pro, the ultimate AR Glass with the most balanced performance across all aspects. Its 90° Field of view is top of the industry and 2-3 times bigger others. With a customized SoC (System-on-Chips) for image processing, it provides robust and fast 6DOF (Degree of Freedom) positional tracking and hand tracking for the most engaging AR experience. It works with both PC and Android phones for 5G compatibility (DreamGlass Pro relies the modem of your phone for 5G network).
With a price of 1/5 of the Hololens and being 5G-Ready, it provides the most accessible high-speed AR platform for now and the future.
Real Demo Video:
DreamWorld was founded in Silicon Valley during 2016 by a group of AR enthusiasts who have had over 20 years of optics and computer vision experiences among us. Believing in the value of "Tech for People", DreamWorld strives to deliver the most cutting-edge yet affordable Augmented Reality technology to everyone.
After 2 years of R&D and manufacturing planning, in June of 2018, we launched our Gen 1 product, DreamGlass. As a responsible team, we managed to ship the product to thousands of customers in the same month. Our hard work paid off. Customers love us and our AR headset was rated as the Top 5 innovative AR products in 2018 together with Apple and Magic leap products. And our CEO, Dr. Zhangyi Zhong, was selected as the Top 30 leaders in AR together with Apple CEO Tim Cook and Microsoft Executive Alex Kipman.
Dreamworld is a frequent exhibitor at CES, AWE, SID and many other conferences as well as trade shows. Our products were liked and appraised by Oculus founder Palmer Luckey, and many other happy customers.
Our current customers are mainly enterprises, studios, and universities. Out of the value of “Tech for People”, We were so eager to find out : what keeps consumers like you from using AR headsets? After a lot of surveys, we found that there are mainly two reasons:
1. AR headsets are too expensive (Normally $2-3K)
2. Very few AR contents are out there.
In September of 2018, we started the project of a truly consumer-friendly AR headset: DreamGlass Air. To address the two problems above, We wanted to make DreamGlass Air with a price in the $200-$300 range , and compatible with most entertainment platforms you already have: Smartphones, Tablets, Consoles (PS4, Xbox, Switch), PC&Mac, Drones, etc. So you will never worry about available contents again.
We started our industrial design in Nov 2018, and prototyping in early 2019. There have been many iterations on PCB assemblies and also mechanical parts. It was not easy. But the harder part is on the software. To seamlessly play contents from so many different platforms in AR, we must do some digital manipulation on the contents received. For our Gen 1 product, we provided to our developer an SDK to do it. But this time, for regular consumers, we cannot use any SDK. We need to come up an invisible layer of coding underneath those contents. After many failures, we succeeded in developing a large set of low-level coding in the GPU(Graphics Processing Unit), solving this problem in the fastest and most efficient way. All contents will directly play without any extra work from you.
In the first half of 2019, we’ve been busy iterating and validating. To collect feedback, we have shown demos of DreamGlass Air to hundreds of people in AWE (Augmented World Expo) and SID Display week, . Now we are doing some final optimizations and will start the the trial production right after the campaign ends. The fund raised with your help will enable us to order all the materials for mass production happening in November. We have many years of manufacturing experience and we have shipped products in high volume before. We are confident that we will produce and ship DreamGlass Air quickly, just as what we did for our Gen 1 product. DreamWorld will live up to your trust!
Last but not the least, let’s talk about something bigger. Everyone knows 5G is just around the corner and as 5G’s most immediate application, AR’s potential is going to be fully revealed. As the future mobile platform, AR is going to completely change how we work, communicate, and entertain ourselves. We believe AR should not be luxury and want to make AR accessible to everyone. That’s why we started this campaign with the price of 1/10 of other AR headsets. However, it is not enough, and we cannot do this alone. AR is still in its infancy, while a lot of people haven’t heard of it, or are still skeptical about it. We need help from pioneers like you, to spread the word and let more people know about Dreamworld, and Augmented Reality in general.
Let’s work together to bring the future to life!
This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 850+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $370M raised between them.
Risks and challenges
DreamGlass Air was designed under our rich experience in product manufacturing. Right now, we are towards the final prototyping phase and we'll start the trial production in September. A very reliable manufacturer has lined up for it. However, we need to inform you of certain risks and challenges:
There might be some unforeseen problems in our production or delivery process, which might affect the final product or the promised delivery time. If anything goes wrong, we promise to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues and how we plan to solve them, so that you can know where your product is and when you will get it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
