Virtual reality glasses really are the coolest of the cool. It is kind of sad how they never really took off as an actual product. Over at MAKE magazine they may be breeding new life into this extinct technology by using VR classes to compensate for the inconveniences of the iPod video. They have taken two different types of VR glasses (a full on dual-LCD display and a single LCD more traditional) and made the iPod video display on both. It appears to be accomplished by simply using the iPod video dock along with the output component cables and a little power hackery. Check the linkage for the full pictorial.
