Myvu ships new fashion video glasses

New models try to address aesthetic challenge.

Myvu

About a year ago it seemed that everyone was coming out with their own version of video glasses. Perhaps one reason their production has since slowed down was their awkward design .

Some manufacturers have tried to address this asthetic challenge , but it remains a work in progress. Now Myvu, which was one of the earlier companies in the market, is taking its products to the runway with the fashion-conscious "Myvu Crystal" and "Myvu Shades," both of which the company has just begun to ship.

The viewers have 320 x 240 resolution and include "CyberDisplay" technology, according to iLounge, with the Crystal version offering an improvement in vision field of 35 percent over previous models. Whether the new designs are enough to make them popular among fashionistas is an open question, but one never knows. They could become the gadget equivalents of the "Cadillac of Mini-Vans."
