Myvu Ships iPod Goggles

New 'Universal' goggles imitate big-screen display of video playing on any iPod.

Myvu, makers of the eponymous video goggles for iPod users, last week announced it is releasing a new $199.99 "Universal" version of the glasses that ship with everything needed to connect to different video devices including fifth-generation iPods.

The company also said it would release a new adapter that will enable the goggles to work with newer video-capable iPods including the iPod touch, iPod classic and iPod nano.

The Myvu uses solid optics technology originally developed for the military and medical markets. Inside the goggles display a 320-by-240-pixel image. Because of the close distance of the optics to your eyeball, the effect is that of looking at a large TV from a distance of about six feet. Myvu sells attachments that enable people with glasses to use the device, as well.

The device features a slim design that enables you to see above and below the glasses, so you can retain a sense of "situational awareness" while still watching video privately. It features built in earbuds, and on the cable that connects the Myvu to the iPod or other video device, a "pendant" remote control lets you adjust brightness and contrast. The pendant also contains a four-hour rechargable battery.

Included with the "Universal" kit are video cable adapters to enable you to connect various devices including mobile phones, portable DVD players and personal media players (PMPs) like the Archos, Zen and Zune. A cable is included that lets you attach a fifth-generation full-sized iPod.

The new iPods introduced in September -- the iPod classic, iPod touch and iPod nano -- all feature video output capabilities, but work slightly differently than the fifth-generation, video-capable full-sized iPod. Myvu plans to release a cable adapter to enable the Myvu Universal Edition to operate with the new iPod models "later this fall" for additional purchase.

The company also sells iPod-only version for $199.99 and $249.99; those versions are similarly limited to fifth-generation iPods for the moment.
