We’ve featured video glasses before and we’ve talked at length about the possiblities for mobile TV. So we were very intrigued to see the CP230 and CP920 Video Eyewear from the Icuiti Corporation, unveiled at the CTIA Wireless Show.
Icuiti’s Video Eyewear offers big screen viewing to the mobile phone, bypassing the problems of a phone’s small screen. It provides a private virtual 42-inch digital quality screen as if the viewer was 7-feet away complete with integrated headphones. The CP920 features two VGA LCD panels each having 640 x 480 resolution and a 26 degree field of view. The CP230 has two QVGA panels with 320 x 240 resolution and a 24 degree field of view. The eyewear just plugs into the mobile phone’s AV port.
Icuiti’s eyewear has analog PAL, NTSC, and custom digital video interface options, with wholesale orders now being taken for summer delivery. The retail price will be around $299 (£170).
