Vuzix eyewear for iPhone
Vuzix has announced its high-quality 3-D mobile video eyewear is now compatible with the iPhone. The new cable is designed specifically for use with the iPhone and has been certified by Vuzix to meet Apple’s performance standard. Support is offered for 3-D video in formats such as side-by-side, interlaced, and all three major anaglyph modes. Vuzix is providing the cable as an upgrade for all current video eyewear customers, and will also be bundling it with the iWear AV230XL.
The AV230XL is a virtual display that works as a 44-inch screen being viewed from roughly nine feet away. The device offers up to seven hours of use with an alkaline battery, or approximately 17-hours with a single lithium battery, and comes with on-screen display controls, removable earphones, and a head strap.
Users can purchase the iWear AV230XL bundle for $200, or upgrade their current video eyewear for iPhone compatibility for $40.
