22Moo video glasses

Australian company 22Moo has announced eleven new products--most of which are in its range of video glasses. The VG240, VG910, VG920 and VG920D are meant to be used with a variety of video sources, such as iPods, Zunes and DVD players, while the 920s (pictured) add a VGA port for connection to a Mac or PC. The key difference between these and the Argo glasses (Argo, Argo+ and Argo+Cinema) is virtual screen size and distance: whereas the VG glasses simulate the equivalent of 50- to 80-inch images at a distance of 3.3 feet, the Argos display 43-inch images at a range of 6.6 feet. Prices range from $235 for the VG-240 to $500 for the Argo+Cinema, which includes a portable DVD player.

The VG-350, meanwhile, is touted as the first consumer eyewear to use LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) technology, but does not benefit from increased resolution. It in fact runs at a standard 320x240, and replicates 48-inch screens at a 6.6 foot distance. The VG-100K is another orphan in the VG family, having even smaller images, but with the unusual benefit of being working sunglasses. The 350 costs $280, while the 100K (due in March) is $300.

The final product is the PlayMate Mini Media Center. Bundled with 22Moo's VG-SD glasses, the player can handle a variety of formats -- such as MP3, MPEG and JPEG files -- and store them on 512MB of internal memory, or increased space through an SD/MMC card slot. The glasses can be used separately with other devices (like the iPod) and charged via USB. List price is $270.
