Carl Zeiss Cinemizer - Cool iPod Accessory

Check out this really cool iPod accessory - the Cinemizer from Carl Zeiss. It's a pair of goggle-like glasses that let us watch movies stored on our iPod anywhere.
Carl Zeiss Cinemizer Cool iPod Accessory
"Zeiss promises unparalleled image quality in video eyewear on an imaginary screen with a 45 inches (115cm) diagonal at a distance of 78 inches (2 meters). The video glasses feature integrated headsets and are designed by the people at Frog Design. A wired remote control lets you play, stop and pause the video. The battery of the video glasses is integrated in the iPod dock.
Besides the iPod, other video sources can be connected via the available video-In. The LCD screens used in the Cinemizer have each VGA resolution."

Cool stuff, isn't it? A breakthrough of the iPod accessories, I would say. The only drawback is the price: Zeiss will sell Cinemizer for €369 in Europe through Gravis stores, with a projected $399 asking price in the United States. This is significantly higher than other major competing iPod products. It's a cool but expensive stuff. :P

That is cool. Too bad the neat things always have to be so expensive

It seems very cool. Will it work with devices other than an iPod?

The name Zeiss is a big selling point. This is probably why they are charging so much for it.

Pretty cool. I just am not a fan of glasses since the dawn of Captain EO. (Thats an old Michael Jackson show at Disneyland)

That's SO cool. Expensive, but we'll see the price drop in... 3 years? Cheers.
