22Moo HMD800 Glasses

Australian company 22Moo has just previewed a new set of video glasses that it hopes will break through psychological price barriers. Users of the new HMD800 will see an 800x225 widescreen image equivalent to a 30-inch television viewed at a distance of 2 meters (6.6 feet). It can display video from any standard RCA input in either NTSC or PAL formats and is purposefully designed for newer iPods with photo or video capability. Playback lasts for up to 8 hours on a lithium-ion battery, claims 22Moo, and the frame can adjust to almost any head size. The HMD800 should be available to North America, Australia, and New Zealand by the end of this year for $199 US, a price considerably lower than for most portable video viewers.

    Myvu

    I think I like the Myvu design better. I'd appreciate a larger virtual screen but I don't think that "hanging bar" design is as elegant as the myVu design.
