Imagine having an entire movie theater that you could wear on your face.
The Only-52 Inch Widescreen Personal Movie Theater is essentially just that. And even if you look a little like Robocop, this thing is just plain cool.
Using two high-resolution LCDs and stereo headphones, these little glasses provide a video experience comparable to watching a 52-inch television from 9 feet away. It does this via 428 x 240 resolution produced in 24-bit true color (16 million colors) and displayed in a 28 degree field of view.
The source signal can be from a video iPod, a personal gaming system, or a portable DVD player. Simply hook the little Movie Theater to one of these devices, hit play, and disappear into the video.
One AA battery can power this little sucker for up to 11 hours of continuous viewing. That’s pretty impressive…
I suspect that my girlfriend would get a little upset with me if I bought one of these. I’d only take them off to put in another movie or game, and then I’d vanish into la-la land again. But, you have to admit that these would be great on a road trip. So long as you’re not the driver, that is.
You can get The Only 52-Inch Widescreen Personal Movie Theater at Hammacher Schlemmer.
UPDATE: This item is no longer available on Hammacher. A similar personal theatre video eyewear is available here and here.
