Cinera, the revolutionary headset we announced three weeks ago just finished raising money on Kickstarter. The company initially pledged a $50,000 goal, but it’s surpassed that, earning $258,569 from more than 532 backers. It was only going to be funded if it reached its goal by Monday, September 18, so the good news is that it’s definitely going to happen! The stereoscopic 3D headset is offering 2560x1440 pixels for each eye (a 3D 2.5 K display) so you have 3 times the pixel count of a 2K movie theater.
