This are the first music player glasses as far as I know. We had Music Player Headsets before, but to have a 256MB MP3 Player built-in glasses is new. Lance Armstrong had the Oakley Thump already at the Tour de France.
The Oakley THUMP comes in seven color combinations and in 128MB and 256MB storage sizes. The music glasses play MP3, WMA (DRM support) and WAV. The battery-life is only 6 hours, but it features USB 2.0. The MP3 glasses feature Oakley's High Definition Optics lenses.
The Oakley Thump glasses should be in stores for the holiday season. No pricing information available yet.
More details on the Oakley THUMP site and in Oakley THUMP borchure (pdf).

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
