Accupix Virtual Movie Theater Glasses
It looks like soon all your gadgets will be embedded in your glasses. Today marked the debut of the (somewhat unfortunate-looking) Oakley Thump mp3 sunglasses and the Accupix MPG-230M, "virtual movie theater" eyewear that uses the Kopin's micro-display to provide an image that's equivalent to watching a 30 inch tv screen from a distance of 6 feet. The MPG-230M includes a built-in tv decoder and can display any NTSC video input. It's powered by 3 AA batteries, which means they're not exactly feather-light, and you'll still need to carry the video source like a dvd player or a tv with a tuner. It's available in Korea right now (but of course) but will be distributed internationally by the end of the year.
