Share:

The iPhone’s 3.5″ screen is one of the most gorgeous displays out there on a cellphone, let alone a portable device. It’s always fun to watch YouTube videos and movies on the amazing touchscreen. But what about when you want to take your iPhone entertainment to another level?

Vuzix Wrap 310: Your iPhone = Portable Home Theatre

Coming later this fall, Vuzix is releasing their Wrap 310, a pair of “video eyewear” glasses that are iPhone compatible. Here’s a quick list of highlights:

I haven’t tried “video eyewear” before, but it’ll be interesting to see how these perform. I will be getting a sample in a couple months so expect a full review up on the blog. Can’t wait to watch The Dark Knight on my iPhone hooked up to the Wrap 310 while I’m driving or when I’m walking around Stanley Park. It’s gonna be swaa-weeeeeet!

  • rayray14

    Did I miss it? Where's the pricing?

  • ReyT

    Ultra-portable, ultra-mini, high-res entertainment system. How much will it cost?

  • mpkvan

    Very cool.I've been using video glasses for the past 3 years the pair I currently have are high res but only 3:4 these are certainly an improvement. They are great for travel I also use them a my campsite to watch movies and podcasts.
    Looking for to your review of the Vuzix wrap 310.

  • The AV310 Widescreen retails for $249USD…so this model will be either the same or cheaper. Definitely an impulse buy! LOL

  • TBA, read above. No pricing released yet!

  • Cheers. I can't wait to test these out. Forget buying a 50″ plasma, I'll just wear these at home with the wife 😉

  • I know you do! If only they came with eyeballs on the front, kind of like those glasses Homer had in court while doing jury duty! WIN!

  • Dusty

    LOL! Well it would be cheaper then the plasma but you gotta still get a plasma 😛 or better yet, both! 😉

  • Dusty

    Ya pricing will be the real answer if I should look into purchasing these or back away 😛

  • djelimon

    Sounds like it might not support hdmi directly so blueray quality still needs an HD tv?
