Video glasses with built-in media player

Qingbar's pair looks like a (better) reincarnation of the Sony Glasstron.

YelloMosquito

Does anyone remember the ill-fated Sony Glasstron from a decade ago? YelloMosquito has taken the concept one step further with the Qingbar GP300, a pair of wireless video glasses with an integrated media player first seen on Engadget. The company claims it can simulate a 50-inch screen, while an onboard miniSD card slot takes care of MP3, WMA, DivX, JPEG, and E-book playback.

It does look reasonably compact and comfortable, weighing just over 3.5 ounces. Another nice touch is a swappable rechargeable lithium battery, which would come in handy on extended road trips. The GP300 is available for pre-order in the United States at $299 and is expected to ship in early December.
