Arisawa Teleglass: Getting Closer

Just last weekend we were writhing over the potential of a video headset that wouldn't get your butt kicked, and we are already a step closer.

The Arisawa Teleglass is a mobile video headset solution that is not a headset at all, but a clip on LCD display that can hook to your coolest pair of wrap around glasses. The .24 inch LCD display simulates a 21 inch display from 1 meter. So while the viewing area isn't huge, one of your eyes can monitor for incoming punches to the face. We're not entirely certain of what sort of video inputs will work, but the Teleglass does require you to carry an iPod-sized box to function.

At about $429, we'll wait until this technology is flat and integrated into the lens. (Sorry manufacturers, nothing else will do for the mass public.)
