MicroOptical to Demonstrate First Bluetooth Eyewear Viewer

"The MicroOptical Corporation, the leader in eyewear viewers for the portable electronics industry, will demonstrate its DV-1 Digital Viewer, a color eyewear system featuring Bluetooth(tm) wireless technology, May 20-22 in booth 645 at the Society for Information Display Conference in Baltimore, Md. The DV-1 viewer, which will be available to application providers and systems integrators in mid-June as a developer's kit, offers wireless, hands-free and head-up viewing of electronic devices.

"The DV-1 viewer is MicroOptical's first digital wireless eyewear viewer," said Mark Spitzer, CEO of MicroOptical. "The 12-bit qVGA color display, which is capable of handling both bit map and text input shows images from compatible PDAs and PCs via Bluetooth short-range wireless specification. Our developer's kit will allow the development community to evaluate the technology and create business and consumer applications that require mobility, situational awareness and privacy, such as public safety, inventory management and medical data viewing, all with the user un-tethered from the image source."

Interesting. These solutions are starting to get more realistic every day! Could you see yourself using one of these if the price was affordable?
