Luxury Electronics: At first glance, the Wrap 920 video eyeglasses by Vuzix looks like a pair of ordinary sunglasses. It's the second look that shows just how wrong a first impression can be. Imagine wearing a pair of sunglasses that you could view a video or surf the 'Net through its lenses-while walking and talking at the same time. And it's not just a mini-screen picture, either. The screen, as seen through these glasses, is comparable to viewing a 60-inch screen from a nine-foot distance. Fashion and technology have never looked so good together!
The Wrap 920, with its see-through lens, is the latest leap forward in quantum-optics technology, providing wearers with a 30-degree field of view. The glasses weigh less than three ounces and have removable noise-canceling earphones. Prescription lenses are available, and the unit operates for six hours on two AA batteries. It works on an iPodŽ and an iPhone as well as on DVD players, media players, digital cameras, camcorders, cellular phones with video out, video game systems, and PCs or laptops with S-video. It also connects to all NTSC or PAL audio/video devices with video-out capabilities.
Vuzix has an iWear line of video "eyewear" that makes the virtual world seem more lifelike with an interactive virtual-reality-display system. The other video glasses are closed systems sans see-through lenses. For video game lovers, it is like diving into a video screen and then resurfacing on the other side of inside a virtual world. It is a total submersion.
The visionary company also manufactures products for medical purposes as well as for commercial and military uses. Various industry pundits view Vuzix as a frontrunner in quantum-optics technology. For more information, visit vuzix.com.
