Vuzix Wrap 310 video eyewear shaped like sunglasses
I may sound like an ignorant twig, but this is so cool! Just like in those movies where they put on a pair of sunglasses and can see the exact statistics of a person or object standing at a distance. Ok, so Vuzix launched the Wrap 310, its latest video eyewear device. The most striking feature of this one is that it is shaped in the form of traditional sunglasses. It also offers an improved user interface, independent focus adjustments and a choice between several lens colors. Also, it has dual LCDs with support for either 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. According to sources, this eyewear can give the same effect of watching a 55-inch screen from nine feet away. The eyewear is compatible with devices such as iPods, iPhones, portable DVD or Blu-ray players, televisions and computers. You can listen to audio using noise-isolating earphones, which are also removable when audio is not needed or another pair of earphones is preferred. It comes with two AA-size batteries that can power it up for up to 6 hours.
