A new pair of video glasses has now been announced by Vuzix Corp and is the Wrap 310, and they look almost like a regular pair of sunglasses but feature high resolution video displays to project a 55 inch screen reports Intomobile.
The Vuzix Wrap 310 also includes removable noise isolating earphones and powers up to six hours using only two AA batteries, and will accept video from virtually any video player including the Apple iPhone and iPod.
