Back to the Future with Cinema/DVD Glasses

by December 06, 2004

RICHMOND, Va., - For online shoppers seeking the latest electronic entertainment gadget, the merchandise innovators at firstSTREET introduce I-Scapes video glasses, a cool new high-tech product that allows you to watch movies and DVDs or play video games in the privacy of your own head.

This portable DVD headset weighs only 8 ounces and produces the effect of a virtual 70-inch screen viewed from 13 feet, simulating a real movie theater. Enjoy favorite movies and DVDs without disturbing others or indulge in hours of truly outrageous video game-playing over the holidays. Value-priced under $300, these videogaming glasses are another exclusive product marketed by firstSTREET.

Designed for maximum comfort, the I-Scapes video glasses feature an elastic band in the back, fully adjustable stereo headphones and foldable frames. Two full-color .7-inch liquid crystal displays support 230x173 lines of resolution comparable to a standard video camera viewfinder with 110,000 pixels per LCD panel. I-Scapes work with cable boxes, VCRs, DVD players and camcorders as well as the most popular video game systems.

[iscapesDVDglasses] "Our I-Scapes video glasses make an ideal accessory for every home entertainment center," says Chris Fawcett, vice president and chief operating officer of firstSTREET. "Because the image is transferred into these DVD glasses via a video cable, the television screen doesn't need to be turned on. Therefore, I-Scapes enable adults and children to watch movies and play fun video games in the same room with others who might be sleeping or working, or who might want to watch something else on television. Also, this DVD eyewear greatly intensifies the overall viewing experience if you just want to feel more a part of the movie or video game."
