Kowon's new MSP-209 video glasses -- is the future here yet?

Ever since we were wee little bloggers we've longed for the days of video glasses, but nothing so far has been quite ergonomic enough, enjoyable enough, or non-nauseating enough to actually justify a purchase or warrant regular use. We can't say Kowon's new MSP-209 video glasses will solve any of those problems, but the $200 price ain't bad, and they claim the unit's micro LCDs are the smallest and lightest available. The whole unit weighs a mere two ounces, and displays video at QVGA, perfect for showing the phone DMB broadcasts that Kowon is targeting the device for. Supposedly the MSP-209 simulates a 32-inch TV at around 7 feet away and can run on its lithium polymer batter for around 8 hours between recharging. The display should be available in Korea next week, with Europe, Japan and China releases coming sometime next month. No word on a US release (surpise, surprise), but Kowon does mention that a VGA version should follow later this year.
