Thanko video glasses

Thanko's new VIGLBL01s attempt to remedy some of the problems of competing video glasses. The Thanko pair weighs only 4.6 ounces, and the display won't easily wash out in the presence of sunlight or strong artificial light sources. The projected image is equivalent to a 37-inch TV viewed from six-and-a-half feet away. The glasses also come with a variety of connectors, including composite cables, and a minijack for video iPods. A lithium ion battery gives the 01s approximately four to five hours of continuous usage, after which they can be recharged via USB or an AC adapter. The glasses are on sale now for 29,800 yen ($255).
