ITG-Vidix Goggles offer the viewer a virtual 50” screen at approximately 6.5ft away with 320x240 resolution in 24bit color and weigh in at around 3.5oz. Offering a point of difference from other video glasses, the ITG-Vidix Goggles not only offer a 2GB built in Flash memory but feature a MicroSD slot capable of supporting up to 32GB of extra storage per memory card.
The glasses feature plug and play file transfer via USB 2.0 which not only acts as a memory card reader when connected, but also serves to charge the unit for up to three hours of use. Most popular formats are supported, and a built in media player and browser enables the user to view files including eBooks, photos and music.
Much like the Vuzix Wrap9203D glasses, the ITG-Vidix Goggles feature a composite AV input and can be used as a display device with a host of multimedia devices ranging from DVD players and iPods to camcorders and gaming devices.
Aesthetically, like other video glasses that have come before it, the wearer wouldn’t be flying under many radars. But when you have a personal entertainment unit strapped to your head, who cares, right?
ITG-Vidix Goggles are available for US$279.99 from the iTVGoggles website.
