I found another fun product in my inbox from an Asian OEM manufacturer. This time the offer features the ugliest, cheapest looking HMD I have ever seen.

Taiwanese Remote-Signal offers the HMD 201 with 30 inch virtual screen projection. The specifications are as low as you would expect after seeing the photo of these video glasses. The resolution of the panels is 201,000 pixels (320x200px) supporting 262k colors. The contrast ratio is 80:1 and the brightness is 250cd/m2.
The FOV is 24 degrees and the weight of the glasses is 95g.
The company even thinks these video glasses go well with the Apple iPod. See photo below. What a hilarious thought. See the iCuiti Video glasses on our Gadget Model Angel for state-of-the-art HMD design. Today's HMD design is still not really attractive. Ideally you would not see the HMD displays. To just use cheap plastic sunglasses and mount LCDs and some bulky case on it cannot be the solution though.

Israel based Mirage Innovations works on a stylish HMD product dubbed LightVu. The current designs look great, but the product is still under development.

The best feature on the Remote-Signal HMD 201 are the little clips on the frame that hold standard earphones. I am not sure how ergonic it is, but this is not a bad idea.

The last highlight from an Asian OEM was the weird USB Syringe I featured last August.
