i-Glasses HR 920 - Introduction
IO Display Systems i-Glasses series was, for many years, essentially the default choice for keen enthusiasts, professionals and aspiring-professionals who wanted top-level image quality and functionality without the bulk (or price) of a pro-level HMD system such as the Liteye LE-750A. The older i-Glasses models were successful and popular video glasses and you didn't have to spend long wearing them to understand why. However, like every other sector of the technology market, there are some very competitive rivals, in terms of both price and features. Video glasses such as Myvu Crystal EV and the newly announced Vuzix Wrap 920 AV have meant the most recent video glasses and video eyewear have been held to higher standards and have found it a little harder to stand-out.
Which brings us to the i-Glasses HR 920, a head mounted display that, for the price, seems determined to wrestle back the king of video glasses crown. For a start, the glasses are built around a pair of Kopin CyberDisplayé VGA's and boast approximately a 640 x 480 native resolution.
