VUZIX AV310 *** pounds 149.99; GADGETS.

Byline: KEVIN LYNCH

Vuzix claim these futuristic looking video glasses give the effect of watching a 52-inch screen from 9ft away.

The headset uses an OLED display for bright, high contrast visuals with the added bonus of being pretty energy efficient (it runs off a single AA battery which lasts for about five hours).

The glasses come with a number of attachments allowing you to connect the goggles to your iPod or just about any device with TV-out, while a pair of built-in earbuds take care of the sound.

Although the slightest head movement means you need to refocus them, I was still impressed with how well the glasses work. That said, it's hard to see the AV310s being of regular use to anyone other than frequent flyers or the gadgeteer who has to have everything.
