VUZIX iWear (reviewed by Julie in 2008) is designed to give you a large-screen video experience without all the equipment. Or real estate. This is an interesting concept to me not just because it is cool, but because my eye sight has deteriorated over the past 50 or so years and it’s getting harder to hold an iPhone beyond arms’ length to watch a movie comfortably. So there is actually a logical and practical application for these.
The company recently released the VUZIX Wrap 920 and will be releasing a new version, the VUZIX Wrap 920AR soon (March/April hmmm sounds like another release date for something kinda cool). The 920AR’s will have attached cameras to make you really dizzy.
