Immerse yourself

Vuzix iWear is a stunningly impressive range of face-furniture that allows you to watch whatever you like whenever you like, in the privacy of your own...erm, head. Simply slip on these lightweight cyber-shades and prepare to be totally blown away by a fully immersive audiovisual assault. That's right, we said audiovisual because these slimline shades even boast integrated (but removable) earphones.

Ingenious optical trickery allows all Vuzix iWear to replicate the effect of watching a big screen from a safe viewing distance. Don't ask us how- all we know is it's like having a high-quality home cinema grafted on your retinas. What's more these hi-tech specs are 3D enabled for automatic 2D/3D control. Unbelievable!

Vuzix iWear

NEW: Vuzix Wrap, it's the future!


Apart from welding a giant plasma to the end of your hooter and chucking a black sheet over your head, we can think of no better way to completely immerse yourself in games and movies. Whether you're into iPod vids, DVDs or the latest multiplayer games, we've got a Vuzix viewer for you:

And don't worry if you're a Peter Jackson fan because a two AA batteries provides up to 6 hours of viewing juice, and two lithium batteries gives up to 16 hours. Epic!

Will it work for android devices?
Martin, Oxford - 22nd October 2012
Firebox says:
I bought these ages ago and I forgot to leave a review. I have to say this is the worst product to ever exist. 800 characters is not enough to express just what a bad product this is. First of all - they didn't work. Hell yeah, quality make right there. I can't even explain what was wrong with them because there's no words in the English language to describe it. The product does not sit on a human being's face. You will always be able to see above and below you. The cable is 3cm long, so enjoy sitting awkwardly next to whatever you have it plugged in to. The WORST thing about them though is how some moron thought the arms should be rubber. This is fantastic and doesn't rip all of your hair out, just most of it. By far the worst thing I've ever bought, and I own an album by Sting.
Beeb, West Midlands - 1st August 2012
Firebox says: Bad news on the sting album. No seriously drop us a line on info@firebox.com with your order details and we will try and help you out on this one, we certainly dont expect our customers to keep a product that they are not happy with.
Does the VR920 work with Minecraft? It would be so cool to be in a world of blocks! Also, would be dangers to wear for long amount's of time, like 15 days? How often should take them off?
William Chance, Orlando Florida - 8th June 2012
Firebox says: Hey William, this will work with any on-line PC game. We wouldn't however recommend wearing these for 15 day straight, you may end up thinking you are permanently in the game!
Do they work with the wii? I'm guessing not but asking just in case.
, - 23rd April 2012
Firebox says: Sadly, no it doesn't, however we'd imagine it would be pretty dangerous playing a Wii while effectively being blindfolded!
Thinking about buying the 280's, the only hesitation I have is the picture quality, the main reason I would want these would be to play games through my xbox, would the quality be good enough to say, read text on Skyrim for example.
Charlie, Newcastle - 18th April 2012
Firebox says: It should be fine, give them a go! We have a very generous returns policy!
Got the 280. Great product, easy to set up. Wouldn't call it exactly immersive or great definition, but great for watching TV on your back in bed, in the bath, on the beach, etc. On Iphone works ONLY with YouTube and Video App. Sadly not iPlayer :( Unsure what it does from a Macbook. No plug supplied.
