Vuzix announced to exhibit their newest HMD at the CES 2009. This year the company shows sunglasses that are able to display a 60 inch virtual image either immersive or in augmented reality mode.
Vuzix calls the Wrap 920AV the world's first fashionable sunglass-style video eyewear with revolutionary see-thru quantum optics. All the buzz words are fine, besides fashionable. The glasses look awful. If you want to make fashionable sunglasses at least talk to Oakley, Ray-Ban or better Prada. From the technical stand point the Vuzix Wrap 920AV is interesting. The lens technology also allows users for the first time to view 3D video content while seeing and interacting with the real world. An optional 6-Degree of Freedom tracking sensor and/or Stereo Camera Pair will enable users to upgrade their Wrap 920AV to experience virtual, augmented and mixed reality environments.
Other features of the Wrap 920AV include Twin high-resolution AMLCD displays, 6 hour battery life, on screen display settings control, and 2D and 3D video format support.
Vuzix is aiming at shipping the Wrap 920AV in Spring.
