Our pals from eMagin are rocking the wearable scene here at CES with the Eyebud 800. This is a single-eye personal OLED display. It straps around the head and the eyepiece flips up and down like something from a 1980s science-fiction film. But the eMagin folks are pitching it to go with the iPod video, natch. The Eyebud's 40-degree field of view is equivalent to looking at a 105-inch display from 12 feet away. But only with one eye—you've got to close the other eye or you will fall over. The resolution is true SVGA 800 x 600, although its only got 24-bit color (that didn't detract from the wow factor one bit). It weighs only 3.6 ounces, and as a built-in microphone as well. There is a rechargeable battery pack which I'm told is about the size of a video iPod. That means it won't drain the battery of whatever PMP you hook it into, and you'll get around four hours out of it on a charge.
