Royole Moon

The Royole Moon 3D Mobile Theater is designed to deliver the most immersive cinematic experience available in a personal mobile display.  Moon is engineered for movies, gaming, and more. It combines two Full-HD 1080p AMOLED displays at over 3000ppi resolution that simulates a giant screen with stereoscopic 3D, and hi-fidelity active noise-canceling headphones. The combination delivers cinematic movie-watching and immersive gaming experiences anywhere the wearer desires. Moon’s patented foldable design (the world’s first in a headset), ultra-soft headphone covers, and a premium breathable eye cover ensure comfort, even after long periods of continuous use.

Moon’s new operating system, Moon OS, utilizes Royole’s patented flexible electronics technologies, allowing full touch-control from the right earpad, eliminating the need for an external controller. 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.

Royole offers purchasers of the Moon 3D Mobile Theater an opportunity to enjoy watching their favorite feature films through a new app called “Royole Lounge”.  A completely integrated digital video service, Royole Lounge makes it easy for movie buffs to experience Moon’s premium features. Buyers of the unit are offered three 2D or 3D movies, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment redeemable through the Royole Lounge app, the built-in dedicated entertainment hub for Moon owners.
