How would you like to surf the web on a 320-inch screen?

Yesterday, Epson announced the Moverio, a pair of glasses which are equipped with two 0.52-inch displays, both running a 960×540 resolution.  They say it can simulate up to a 26.5-foot screen viewed from a distance of 20 meters.

Included in the package is a touchpad remote that will allow users to navigate the web, watch videos and perform other activities using the Android based device.  Unfortunately, it’s still not clear if the Android OS will be a full blown version as found on many of today’s smartphones, but they’ve managed to toss in WiFi, an SD card slot, a button to toggle between 2D and 3D images, a volume control and headphone jack.

Even though the Moverio glasses are designed to display video and so forth, they’re in fact transparent, enabling anyone wearing them to keep an eye on their surroundings.

The design is some what reminscent of geratics sunglasses.  And for good reason, since you can wear your everyday perscription glasses with the Moverio.

No word on a launch date or a price, but we expect to see them at CES in January of next year.
