Who knew that “Terminator” glasses were still in? Sure, you may not have the muscle to pull off Myvu’s Crystal or Shades products. However, if you dangled the magic to display video, even a Members Only jacket would be worth the fashion risk.
Both products work with any portable video device: an iPod, Zune, DVD player, etc. Plug any of those in, and you can watch video inside the glasses with the same effect as if you were sitting in a theater seat.
Don’t worry about disturbing those around you with sound; both units include noise-isolating earbuds so you can completely bogart the experience. Both come with a rechargeable battery, promising anywhere from four (Crystal) to 10 (Shades) hours of non-stop viewing.
Crystal ($299.95) and Shades ($199.95) are available for purchase via Myvu’s website and select retail partners.
