Looking for a nice pair of new glasses? What about glasses that make you feel like you’re watching 3D content on a 75-inch display? Well, that’s quite a specific request you’ve made but Vuzix has what you’re looking for. The company today announced its new pair of virtual reality glasses called the Wrap 1200VR.

These are almost identical to the Wrap 1200 3D glasses we saw in August, but have special head-tracking capabilities for gamers. The WVGA displays in front of each are 800×480 but can handle video input in 720p, and can be individually focused for each eye. The user can also position the displays to account for their unique inter-pupillary distance.

As far as that head-tracking technology goes, it comes with a compass and nine sensors. The new glasses support more than 100 titles for 3D video and/or head tracking, including titles like COD: Modern Warefare, Fallout 3, and F.E.A.R.

If you wear contacts or even glasses, no worries. The Vizux Wrap 1200VR can fit “comfortably” over most prescription glasses. And just like when you go to the movies and slap on that super cool pair of RealD specs, your contacts will remain unaffected.

The glasses connect to almost any Windows laptop or desktop, with support for Windows 7, Vista, and XP in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Optional interfaces also allow for a connection to component video devices like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

If you have $600 laying around and no fear of looking like a gadgets geek, check out the Vuzix Wrap 1200 VR glasses available now at Vuzix.com.
