Myvu Corporation, the world leader in video eyewear, debuted a new generation of myvu personal media viewers with myvu shades and myvu crystal. Both new viewers turn portable media players into hands-free, private cinemas - all in a fashionable pair of sunglasses. In partnership with INNO Design, Myvu worked with world-famous Young Kim, who designed myvu Shades.
Myvu Shades features a glance-down design that allows viewers to maintain true situational awareness. This unique design provides a broad and unobstructed field of view that enables new applications and uses that were not possible before. Myvu Crystal features an increased resolution from Quarter VGA to VGA quality without sacrificing its sleek, ergonomic design. In addition, myvu Crystal has a 35% increase in the field of view over existing myvu models, providing true DVD quality. Built for durability, myvu Crystal still retains the appearance of a delicate, elegant pair of high-end eyeglasses.
The new myvu line features Kopin's CyberDisplay(R) technology, offering the highest pixel density and the sharpest resolution for its size. Shades and Crystal also include a rechargeable battery with up to 10 hours of viewing time for Shades and up to four hours of viewing time for Crystal and earbuds from Ultimate Ears. Myvu Shades and Crystal work with portable media players, including all iPod(R) with video model, Sansa-View(R), Microsoft Zune, mobile phones (ie. Nokia N95), portable DVD players and various game consoles.
The new line of myvu eyewear will be available in 2008. Myvu Shades will retail for $199.95. It will be available in late January 2008 through Amazon.com, which will begin accepting pre-orders today at http://www.myvu.com/. Myvu Crystal will ship in Spring 2008. Both will be available through www.myvu.com and select retailers nationwide. They are being displayed for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show.
