ezVision video glasses: portable 50-inch virtual widescreen viewing
August 28, 2007 § 2 Comments
It’s a fact that nobody likes watching movies on a 2.5-inch screen for a portable device and it seems that more and more companies start making progress in the video glasses area. Such a company is ezGears . Slip their ezVision glasses on and pop the earbuds in and you’re treated to a private screening with a virtual screen size of 50” and a relaxed viewing distance that’s not too hard on the eyes. As I was discussing in a previous article on video glasses this distance should be for a 50″ screen something like 3-4 meters.
ezGear’s ezVision video glasses are available in two resolutions – a 320×240 version and a 640×480 version, both of which deliver a viewing experience similar to watching a 60” screen from about 8.5 feet away (that would be about 2.6 meters). Both feature rechargeable Li-ion batteries and the lower resolution version is good for 8 hours of viewing.
As for pricing they cost US$299 (or US$399 for the higher-resolution X4 version, pretty expensive as I can tell but for the video enthusiasts it’s going to be heaven.
