Vuzix Wrap 1200VR video glasses on sale now

Vuzix's Wrap 1200VR video eyewear has gone up for sale, offering a virtual 75-inch display with up to 720p HD resolution support along with head-tracking sensors. Announced back in August, the Wrap 1200VR supports side-by-side 3D video playback and virtual reality applications, thanks to a digital compass and nine other sensors, while inputs include DVI/VGA and USB 2.0

Each eyepiece can be individually adjusted to suit the wearer's eyesight, and with various adapters you can hook up your Xbox 360 or PS3. PC games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Fallout 3, F.E.A.R and others should work out of the box, however. If you're more interested in coding new content, Vuzix offers a free  Vuzix Software Developer Kit (SDK).

The Vuzix Wrap 1200VR is priced at $599.99 and is available now. If you don't need all the functionality, Vuzix also offers the regular Wrap 1200 for $499.99, with more multimedia-centric abilities rather than the virtual reality support.
