Basically, this is like having a DLP strapped in front of your face, with your eyeballs as the projection surface.


Wearing something that big and bulky on your head, on the other hand...

I think I'll wait for the version that transmits right to my brain and skips the eyes. tongue.gif Can't be too far off.

Funny story... my little brother super glued his eye shut about 15 years ago... I don't suggest doing that.

It's a pity the built in headphones mean you can't go with whatever type of headphone you prefer, and/or already own.
