eMagin announces wearable iPod video headset

Of course, what would 2006 start off with other than more iPod gagdetry? eMagin Corp has gone beyond their usual market to produce a headset for the 5G iPod, with the ability to display video. Of course, it covers only one eye and looks almost like something out of a sci fi flick. Supposedly, it is similar to watching a 105 display from 12 feet away. It staggers over the iPod in price at close to $600 and is going to be made available in the summer of this year. Who would plunk down $600 for a wearable video headset though? Well, some might, but despite this devices novelty and perhaps future use, that steep of a price tag will keep it out of the hands of most. An interesting peek at things to come.
