Sony redefines cool shades

— 12:46 AM on January 28, 2000 has a review of the Sony Glasstron. The Glasstron is essentially a wearable TV, an eyeglasses-sized device that appears to the wearer to be a 52" TV viewed from six feet away. The article describes it as similar to being in a movie theater.

The reviewer seems to really like the thing, praising not only the video but the sound from the included earbud headphones. They do say that playing videogames on the thing tends to lead to nausea-- bummer. Still, you'd be hard pressed to find a 52" TV for the price of this thing; $499. As long as you always watch TV by yourself, it's the bargain of the century.
