    Just think how goofy you'd look if you were watching a movie with them. Hehehe [​IMG]
    They do sound cool though. Do they accept component cables? [​IMG]

    Very low resolution, I've seen similar products and these sound similar with only 180K pixels. The high-end, high-priced models in the $3k range are reported to be a lot more watchable.

    I tried out a set similar to this at Frys Electronics out on the West Coast. The picture was good for what it was, but not a replacement for a home system. The glasses weren't all that comfy after 5 minutes and would probably be awful to use for a whole movie. Also, they aren't designed to block out your peripheral vision (likely for safety reasons). I'd prefer blinders to block out the light but that's just me. I'm pretty sure they accept s-video from the DVD to the little control box attached to the glasses. I didn't look for component inputs but they probably wouldn't gain you that much.
    I'd give them a 6 out of 10 just for novelty.

    My dentist has a set of these in his exam room. It's a nice distraction when you're having 2 hours of dental work done!
    Quality-wise, they're not all that great. You can pick out individual pixels and the image is not as big as promos would have you believe. I think $400 is a little steep for something of this quality.
