Prototype Virtual HD Binoculars Display the World in Stunning 8K

— October 4, 2012 — Tech

However, many are unaware that there are even higher resolutions that are starting to creep their way into the consumer market.

The prototype virtual HD binoculars utilize 8K resolution which has 16 times the pixels of typical 1080p content (essentially making it 4320p). That means it provides a 16x zoom without losing any original data. Users will always sees a high quality HD picture instead of getting the pixelated mess that's usually associated with zooming in on moving footage. However, since it's still in development, don't expect to these high-tech binoculars hitting retail stores anytime soon.
