Wrap 920 Video Eyeglasses: Seeing Is Believing

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 iPod® 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.
