myvu: big screen experience in small package?


Myvu_shadow I’ll admit it, when I first saw a picture of the myvu personal media viewer, I immediately thought of the Oakley Thump .mp3 sunglasses. Then I realized: there’s no way those thin goggles can block the sun, so this has to be something unique. And it is. The myvu is a $269 pair of audio/video glasses that connect to a portable media device like an iPod video. Instead of watching your vids on a small 320 x 240 screen, the myvu shows the video inside the glasses and pumps audio through the attached earbuds. MobilitySite wrote up a solid review of the myvu and gave it a "4.7 out of 5". An estimate of the perceived screen size was in the 30-inch range, which isn’t bad. Add the fact that the batteries lasted through 3.5 full-length movies and it sounds like you’ve got a winner for videos on the run.
