With widely-available TV on your mobile rapidly approaching, you could soon be watching the news instead of listening to the radio on the daily commute. But what if that person next to you keeps sneaking a peek? They can’t if you plug in a pair of these Kowon personal LCD TV glasses.
Yes, nosey neighbours are apparently a big problem in South Korea, where TV on mobiles has really taken off. This head-mounted display should solve the problem. It features a 4.8 x 4.2mm, 320 x 240 LCD panel in front of each eye. According to the manufacturer, the glasses make you feel like you’re watching a 32-inch TV from a distance of two metres. Each pair has its own rechargeable battery that provides eight hours’ viewing.
The TV glasses go on sale next week in Korea for the equivalent of £116. Kowon is in talks with suppliers in Europe about bringing the glasses over if they’re successful in their home country.
