Size matters – iWear puts a whole cinema in your pocket

UK consumers can get their hands on the brand new iWear video glasses from US company Vuzix. Already a big hit with consumers in the US, iWear plugs into most video playing gadgets, including iPods and other portable media players, mobile phones, DVD players and even gaming consoles like the Wii, Xbox 360 and Sony PSP, to create the ultimate personal viewing experience. The iWear glasses start at just £99.99 for an iPod-only version, all the way to the top of the range glasses which use the latest LCD technology to create a 62 inch virtual cinema screen. The full iWear range is available to buy from

Small enough to fit in your pocket, iWear come in a soft carry pouch and all the connectors and cables you need. The iWear range all deliver great stereo sound through discreet over-ear speakers, and the built-in lithium ion battery gives up to 5 hours of video playback from a single charge.

“Portable media players may be great for listening to music when you’re out and about, but watching movies and video clips on such tiny screens just isn’t a good experience,” said Paul Travers, CEO of Vuzix. “iWear mean you can turn anything on the small screen into a big screen experience - and at a price that won’t break the bank.”

What really sets the iWear apart from the competition is its amazing ability to show video in super-sharp 3D using the same technology Hollywood studios are using to create blockbuster movies like Beowulf. With the iWear, all you need is 3D content, and you’ve got your very own iMax experience!
