Not just another iPod accessory....a Big Screen!

eMagin, manufacturer of video display products for military and industrial use, has just introduced the EyeBud wearable video display for video iPods.

The EyeBud, which displays a video image in front of one eye, can the user feelas if he/she is watching video on a 105-inch display from 12 feet away, according to the company. “Suddenly you’ve got this big-screen, movie-screen, home-theater experience, wherever you are,” said Gary Jones, eMagin’s president and CEO. The EyeBud uses a separate control module, about the size of an iPod, which includes a rechargeable battery pack.
The EyeBud is scheduled to be available later this year for arround $600. It will be on display at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and
