These all new glasses from Vuzix just went to the top of my must-have tech list.
They’re called Wrap 1200 and they’re the ultra-latest from Vuzix, offering an equivalent experience to a 75″ screen viewed from 10ft. Love it. They operate at 16:9 –and 2x AA batteries will keep you going for up to three hours of video playback.
They’re also 3D-compatible! Plus, they support standard display resolutions of up to 1280 x 720 — so you can plug’em into your laptop using the included VGA connectivity. 24-bit colour, obviously.
It’s not just VGA though. Oh no. These ones will plug straight into your iPhone or iPod Touch without having to buy any extra adapters. Precisely what I need when I’m on the plane. I am particularly enamoured by the fact they also come with detachable noise-isolating stereo headphones.
Price? Well, the recommended retail is £399 — understandable, given the amount of high-tech stuff squeezed into such a small package.
I really, really do like the idea of using these when on the plane or the train — I don’t like having folk ogling over my shoulder at what I’m watching/doing.
Plus, they look very cool indeed.
