The MicroOptical Corporation, the leader in video eyewear for the portable electronics industry, today introduced the myvu Made for iPod edition. Available for $399, the new myvu personal media viewer is compatible with the 30GB, 60GB and the new 80GB Apple iPods with video, and is the perfect solution for viewing movies purchased from the new iTunes 7. Myvu comprises lightweight eyewear with built-in video viewing and audio systems, an ultra-thin battery pack for six hours of viewing time, and a small pendant that offers easy access to all controls. These features combine to offer an unsurpassed experience in portable video watching for iPod customers.

The myvu personal media viewer resembles a pair of dark sunglasses, offering a viewing experience comparable to a 27-inch screen from six feet away. Inside the front of the unit is MicroOptical's patented display system, which the company adapted from hardware it developed for the military to allow tank drivers and others to simultaneously view both information and surroundings. Unlike an immersive headset system that blocks the user from seeing anything but the screen and, therefore, significantly limits its usefulness, myvu offers users "situational awareness." Through the use of a thin optical bridge, users can see over and under the screen while continuing to be aware of their surroundings.

And because you can still see around myvu while viewing videos, it's ideal for people on-the-go."
