Vuzix Wrap 310 video eyewear resembles sunglasses

updated 07:50 pm EDT, Tue September 15, 2009

Video playback paired with traditional appearance

Vuzix has announced the Wrap 310, its latest video eyewear device. The Wrap series integrates many of the same capabilities as the company's visor-style displays, but pairs the technology with the look of traditional sunglasses. The device also offers an improved user interface, along with independent focus adjustments and a choice between several lens colors.

The 310 series video eyewear features dual LCDs with support for either 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. The company claims the eyewear replicates watching a 55-inch screen from nine feet away. Compatible devices include iPods, iPhones, portable DVD or Blu-ray players, televisions or computers.

Wearers can listen to audio using included noise-isolating earphones, which are also removable when audio is not needed or another pair of earphones is preferred. Two AA-size batteries are claimed to power the displays for up to 6 hours, while users can attach sources via Component, VGA, or iPod dock connections.

Pricing and launch information for the Wrap 310 have yet to be announced.

    Yep, perfect for those who insist on texting while driving. Traffic cops will NEVER suspect!
