Royole Moon is a new 3D virtual mobile theater for movies, gaming, and more.

Royole today announced that it has been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in both the Wireless Handset Accessory and Gaming categories for its Moon, a new 3D virtual mobile theater for movies, gaming, and more. Products entered in the prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products.

Royole Moon combines two Full HD 1080p AMOLED displays at over 3000 ppi resolution that simulate a giant 800” curved screen with stereoscopic 3D, and active noise cancelling headphones, to deliver cinematic movie-watching and immersive-gaming experiences anywhere the wearer desires. Moon’s screen is also scalable, allowing full control over the screen size for a personalized viewing experience. Furthermore, it features Royole’s patented foldable design, ultra-soft headphone covers, and a premium breathable eye cover to ensure comfort even after long periods of continuous use. It also includes 32GB (128GB upgrade available) of internal storage and battery life for up to 5 hours of continuous video playback. Advanced optics allow most eyeglass wearers to enjoy Moon without their corrective lenses.

Moon’s new operating system, Moon OS, utilizes Royole’s patented flexible electronics technologies, allowing full control while eliminating the need for an external controller. It also supports third party development while allowing the device to be easily connected with, and controlled by, smartphones. Moon is capable of sourcing movies from smartphones, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and PCs, as well as accessing content from nearly any internet-based service, such as Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, YouTube, and more. It also can enhance gaming experiences on popular platforms, including PlayStation, Wii, Xbox, Apple, Google, and others. With 2D/3D format auto-detection, the user experiences content the way it was designed to be enjoyed. Moon was created using the highest quality materials and comes in three stunning colors: black, white, and gold.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in not one, but two categories,” said Dr. Bill Liu, Founder and CEO of Royole. “Moon has been years in the making and features a great deal of our unique proprietary technologies, including over 100 patents and know-hows. Needless to say, it is very gratifying to be recognized by CTA for all of our team’s hard work.”

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTATM), the producer of CES 2017, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

The Royole Moon will be displayed at CES 2017, which runs from January 5 – 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the LVCC South Hall in booth #26002.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.
