My Own Private Big-Screen TV

SAN FRANCISCO (03/28/2000) - Frequent fliers who've strained to see too many in-flight movies can turn their weary eyes elsewhere for entertainment. The Eye-Trek FMD-150W from Olympus America Inc. (800/622-6372, http://www.olympusamerica.com) may look like an ordinary pair of sunglasses, but these shades come with a 240,000-pixel personal TV display. Plug the Eye-Trek into a portable DVD player, and the effect is like watching a 62-inch screen from less than 7 feet away. The $899 gadget-$599 for a lower-resolution version-also hooks up to TVs, VCRs, camcorders, and laser disc players.
