Vuzix AV310 video eyewear to do 16:9 widescreen


And now to talk about video glasses that push everything out in glorious 16:9. The AV310 from Vuzix will cost $249.95 (not bad, not bad), replicate a 52-inch screen as viewed from nine feet, feature independent adjustment for each of your eyeballs, and work for up to five hours on a single AA battery. The glasses hook up to just about anything with video output. All iPod models are also supported.

No firm release date aside from “coming soon” — there’s an empty page up on the Vuzix web site – but the AV310 will be sold through Brookstone, SkyMall, Micro Center, Hammacher Schlemmer, and at when it’s ready.
