Multimedia, AV Here at OSNews we like to look at new, innovative products that push boundaries and create new markets. In the past year there were only 3-4 companies wordlwide that released video glasses (goggles) to accompany the exploding market of PMPs. MicroOptical is one of these pioneers and they kindly sent us in their MyVu video glasses to take them for a spin.

It only supports 320x240 resolution. Nothing new or innovative about these goggles at all. Just a re-packaged set of goggles that we've seen before......

Most goggles on the market are QVGA. There is only 1 or 2 such consumer products that come in VGA and they are considerably more expensive as they have to cram VGA resolutions in a 1" LCD. I don't see why you think that you need more than QVGA. I could not see any pixels or anything while watching a video. You are standing far away from the virtual screen that it's not possible to make pixels out.
