Vuzix is demonstrating its video iWear AV920-C, described as the first personal video display allowing multiplayer gaming off a single video game console. The AV920-C connects to Xbox360, PlayStation3, Nintendo Wii and other consoles, then allows users to select their half or quadrant of the TV video screen and view it on their personal 62-inch virtual screen. With the ability to daisy-chain the devices together, up to four players can game without distraction or fear than an opponent can view their screen, the company says.
The iWear AV920-C is designed to connect to almost all NTSC or PAL audio/video devices with video-out capabilities. It is 3-D-enabled for automatic 2-D/3-D control, and includes removable, integrated speakers and AccuTilt viewer that pivots up to 15 degrees for a comfortable viewing angle. The iWear can be worn with or without prescription eyeglasses, and includes an integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery as well as mini USB AC charger. It is available with the AV920-C Console Kit bundled or sold separately.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
