  View your cell phone movies on a big screen
U.S.-based MicroOptical Corp. Kopin Corp. is hooking up with French Telecom OrangeSA to roll out a mobile phone service that will allow users to subscribe to and view movies and thru special glasses that makes it seem like your watching the movies on a big screen. I don't get whether these headphones are service specific or if you can use them with any provider, but they're cool none the less.
MicroOptical’s video eyewear contains two of Kopin’s full-color, QVGA-resolution (320 x 240) CyberDisplay 230K microdisplays. The sleek eyewear allows users to privately view large-size video or pictures equivalent to a 12-inch screen as seen from three feet away, yet simultaneously view their surroundings thanks to the small size of the frame and MicroOptical’s patented optics which allow the user to see around the screen. Europe’s AFP news wire service called the bundled technology “a sure fire hit,” saying that the eyewear’s “big screen effect” is stunning, especially when combined with built-in stereo earpieces.
