Emagin, makers of personal display systems, is planning to show off its iPod Video compatible EyeBud 800 at CES this week. The device is designed to natively plug into the iPod Video and displays video to one eye in a ‘borg like’ manner. According to Emagin, the EyeBud will display images equivalent to watching a 105? screen TV from 12’ away. Unfortunately, the device requires a control module (includes battery) that is about the size of the iPod, and will cost around $599, twice that of the cheaper iPod Video. I think I’ll just hold the iPod Video really, really close to my face and not “garner curious looks when worn in public?.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
