What is the GodView V5?
The GodView V5 is a pair of augmented reality glasses that offer an extremely high resolution for an augmented reality device.
They are similar to the RealMax Qian, another pair of mixed reality smart glasses we features recently.
Top-end hardware like the Microsoft Hololens 2 and Magic Leap One offer 2K and 2.5K resolution, respectively. The company claims its headset produces a 5K resolution projected display.
GodView comes with an amazing 110-degree field of view, nearly three times what you get in the HoloLens and Magic Leap headsets. In fact, it can produce a virtual screen equivalent to a 300″ projecting screen, with up to 2000 nits of brightness. The glasses do not include a computing device. Instead, the headset is powered from your mobile phone or computer.
GodView claims to give you a display that is brighter and higher quality than the Oculus Quest 2, while looking and fitting like a pair of sunglasses.
What is the GodView Light V1?
The Godview Light V1 are a cheaper and lighter version of the smart glasses vs the V5. They come with a 1080p display and 82 degree field-of-view.
The combination of titanium alloy and super waveguides give the V1 a more lightweight nature. The company designed this lighter version to meet the needs of consumers who yearn for portability.

The Godview Game Controller is a device used to provide input to a video game. It controls an object or character in the game. The controller is compatible with iOS 9.02, Android 6.0 and above, Nintendo switch, Playstation, and Microsoft Xbox. It weighs about 230g and the battery capacity is around 380mA.
The Game Controller allows you to use your glasses to play games from your computer or mobile phone.
Detailed specs of the Game Controller are below.
The Godview PickMini is a small computer device that you can tether to the headset. It comes in two models:
The first model is equipped with an Intel quad-core processor running Windows 10. The second model comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor running Android.
The PickMini gives you a full standalone computer for the GodView so that you don’t need to tether to your phone.
The Godview Bridge is what allows the smart glasses to look and feel so lightweight. They connect with a single cable to the Bridge, which is responsible for connecting to your nearby computer, phone, or console.
The Bridge is WiFi 6 compatible so that you can have the fastest possible data speeds.
A GodView Bridge is included with each order on Kickstarter.
