Nikon, yes, Nikon, is pushing the dream of living like the Jetsons one step closer with the Media Port UP300x and UP300 PMP headsets. The two models sport a .44-inch 640×480 screen that appears to the equivalent of a 50-inch screen when folded down in place, which displays everything from video files, to music details and even a web browser thanks to the built-in WiFi connection. Users can control the devices either by the included infrared remote, the side buttons, or on the higher-end UP300x, with motion-activated controls. The high-end model is also equipped with a larger 8 GB storage, rather than the UP300’s 4 GB drive, and comes with a dongle for external AV inputs. It seems these two models are destined for Japan only where peeps wearing similar dorky items are the norm anyway.
