Apple And Sony Team Up For Video Goggles

Viewing goggles from the likes of myvu and Vuzix have yet to become commonplace, mostly due to the fact that you would look entirely out of place whilst wearing them on the train to work. There is a rumour that Apple are developing a set of video goggles, which will allow you to view video files through them, which can be taken from an iPod or any other Portable Media Player. It is also though that Sony will be partnering with Apple to create the ideal technology for the screen which resides inside the goggles. I for one am excited about this, as Apple and Sony joint venturing will no doubt result in a fantastic end product.
If the goggles receive as much attention as the iPod managed five years ago, it will be a massive product and one which could follow in the footsteps of the iPod, albeit a far more ambitious creation. We will need to wait and see if this speculation comes to fruition, and hopefully one day portable video viewing will be possible via a trendy set of goggles, not something similar to Cyclops from X-Men.
