Vuzix iWear AV310 Widescreen, The First-Ever Widescreen Personal Video Eyewear
Just at a time I’m coping with getting glasses for too much TV exposure, Vuzix comes and announces the iWear AV310 Widescreen, which is a personal video eyewear. Even though we are grown ups, seldom do we adhere to the proper distance norm between seating viewing. Adding to this now eyewear with screens is becoming a fad. All in all I think the optometrists must be funding the companies, after all it good for their business as well. Moving on, the iWear is a true widescreen with 16:9 aspect ratio. It projects a virtual 52′ screen from 9-feet and will run for five full hours on a single AA battery. It offers independent focus adjustment, adjustable earbuds and nosepiece.
