Why do we like getting to the cinema nice and early? Because the trailers are the best part! Well yes that’s true, but it’s really so that we can nab the best seats in the house – right in the middle of the room, surrounded by speakers. That’s the audio/visual sweet spot. Depending on the movie, obviously. For High School Musical the best seat is actually somewhere in the foyer.
But now there’s a way to enjoy cinema-quality sights and sounds wherever you are. The Vuzix Wrap 1200
might look like a pair of Bono’s hand-me downs, but they’re in fact the world’s first high resolution 16:9 widescreen Virtual Reality eyewear system
. What in the name of love is that? We’ll explain...
High resolution video is fed to both lenses, creating (through goodness knows how much optical trickery) the effect of watching a 75” screen 10ft away
. The technology is so advanced you can adjust the focus in each lens independently to perfectly match your vision. And they’ll even work for 3D movies
too! So whether you’re watching Avatar or the Yellow Submarine you’ll be sure to keep the picture pin-sharp and pixel-perfect.
For your eyes only!
The glasses even feature removable stereo earphones
. Plug them in when you’re out and about and you can be instantly immersed in the surround-sound cinema experience – brilliant for long flights, the daily commute or even boring family reunions. ‘Sorry about the glasses everyone... terrible conjunctivitis... kick him in the head, Bourne!’.
But the possibilities don’t end there. For gamers and FPS addicts upgrade to the Wrap 1200VR
and it will drop you right into the action. High-tech motion sensors
in the frames* support 6-degrees of head-tracking
. So while you’re wearing them you can gaze around the virtual landscapes just by moving your head! Not only is this a whole new level of immersive gameplay, it gives you a tactical advantage over your friends as they furiously twiddle their dual thumb-sticks to look, aim and fire.
Working with virtually all makes and models of windows graphics cards and almost any video source these awesome cyber-specs will adapt to suit you. So whether you’re catching up on downloads of your favourite TV shows, watching stunning Blu Ray movies, or gazing around a virtual gamescape the Vuzix Wrap 1200 make every seat the best seat in the house.
*The tracker provided on the Wrap 1200VR model is a separate unit, which plugs into the glasses via the mini USB socket.
