According to the company, “The AV920-C will connect to Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and others to provide an immersive experience and a 62 inch viewing screen for single and multiplayer video games”

Features Of New iWear AV920-C:

* Advanced Video Frame Buffers, allowing for up to four 62 inch virtual screens

“The AV920-C adds a new dimension to multiplayer games. Instead of viewing all four players on the one screen, the AV920-C allows users to select their half or quadrant of the display screen and view it blown on their own personal 62 inch screen,” said Paul Travers, Vuzix’s CEO. “With the ability to daisy chain the AV920-C’s together, up to four players can game without distraction or fear that an opponent can view their screen. This will change how local or inhome multiplayer games are played.”

Sounds interesting, but I'm very sceptical, I've seen many similar devices (even though they didn't have this see-through feature), and they weren't as good in reality as they looked on paper. And they all put a lot of strain on eyes too.

Seems nice, but we had more of the same before and it never seemed to got off the ground well, most often to expensive I think.

As for posting something like this on a art blog, I think technology can be an art-form on it self. You might wane look on Google for "PC case mod" also if you don't have anything to do. Used to do some stuff like that.

As for a gadget I would really want, it would definitely be a selective hearing device. Something you could program to filter out certain noise or more specifically, certain people. :]
