The MicroOptical Corporation, the leader in eyewear video viewers for the portable electronics industry, introduced its myvu™ personal media viewer to the U.S. market at the Macworld Conference & Expo. The myvu viewer, which comprises eyewear with built in video viewing and audio systems, revolutionizes the way people watch video with an Apple iPod®. Attendees can have a personal demonstration of the viewer in booth 849 through January 13.

By connecting the small, ultra-light “binocular” eyewear viewer to an iPod, users can watch their favorite music videos, video podcasts and TV shows with a large image right in front of their eyes. Since MicroOptical’s myvu™ viewer works indoors and outdoors, users can experience portable video anywhere, anytime. Because the display and audio systems are built into the eyewear, myvu can be worn in any position -- reclining on an airplane, sitting on a park bench and even lying down on a couch.

“MicroOptical proved the myvu™ viewer’s ability to deliver portable video in France, where under the Orange brand it is paired by France Telecom with a Samsung D600 cell phone,” said Mark Spitzer, CEO of MicroOptical. “We chose Macworld as the venue to debut the product in the U.S. because of the overwhelming response Apple has had for its video iPod. As the iPod changes the way people experience video, the myvu™ viewer will accelerate its adoption by providing hands free, head-up access to a large virtual image. The myvu™ viewer makes watching portable video more practical.”
