MyVu Personal Media Player: LCD goggles for the iPod

Marc Perton

Remember those Orange LCD goggles we checked out last week? The ones being pitched in France as a virtual display for Samsung's SGH-D600 cellphone? Well, manufacturer MicroOptical Corp. is pretty busy, because this week they're hawking the same goggles at Macworld as the MyVu Personal Media Player, which they claim will "accelerate" the adoption of the iPod by providing "hands free, head-up access to a large virtual image." We may be naive here, but we somehow don't think Apple needs MicroOptical to accelerate the iPod's market growth. MicroOptical doesn't list a price for the MyVu, but the French version is €299 ($361), so we expect similar pricing here.
