Vuzix second-gen video eyewear almost look like sunglasses we'd want to wear

Vuzix is planning a second generation of its head-mounted displays that look like "something people would actually want to wear," according to a representative of the company. Stylin' or not, the Wrap 920AV improves upon the iWear VR920 by allowing you to see — you don't feel like you're watching a movie with a box on your head.

In our demo, the Wrap 920AV presented us with a crisp screen of a video played from an iPod front and center, while everything else was heavily tinted by the sunglasses. The overall effect actually feels a bit easier on the eyes and isn't as distracting as you might think — we didn't feel that movie-theater eyestrain as we took the shades off. Retractable headphones are hidden in the arms of the shades and, like its predecessor, it can play videos from iPods and iPhones.
