eMagin unveils EyeBud for the iPod

Ever heard of eMagin? Well, if not, chances are, you will know about them now that they have introduced the EyeBud, a headset that was designed for use with video iPods.

Here’s how it works. You wear the EyeBud and position the ‘screen’ over one eye. You may look like a pirate but eMagin’s President and CEO, Gary Jones, swears that it will change the way you use your video iPod. “Suddenly you’ve got this big-screen, movie-screen, home-theater experience, wherever you are,” according to Jones.

That may sound a bit far-fetched but eMagin states that the EyeBud does provide the ‘feeling’ of watching video on a 105-inch display from about a distance of 12 feet.

The EyeBud utilizes a separate control module and ships with a rechargeable battery pack. It is set to be available in the market later 2006 for a whopping US $600. For a sneak preview, note that the EyeBud will be on public display during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Jan. 5-8, 2006).
