THIS is the geekiest thing I've ever seen ...but also one of the coolest... 128 Mhz RISC CPU, and a head worn screen...as for input :
"The on-board USB port connects to a customized, hand-held, touch optical mouse pointing device for easy Internet and Windows navigation. Poma is also compatible with wearable keyboards and other pointing and input devices."

$1450 for that is quite good IMO, especially as the dollar is weak and i live in germany :p ... one yould also get an alienware laptop for that, but it wouldnt be that 1337

OS is windows CE, what are the games like for that system?
I'm very tempted to save up some money for that one...or trigger my brother to wish one for his confirmation :p

wahts your opinion?

Wow, that looks sweet.

Like in the thread about the ninty rev, new ways of using technology is always good. I tried some 3d glasses recently that were amazing-it was like being in an IMAX cinema! The thought of playing games or being able to watch movies on such a beast would be amazing!

Imagine, you're on a flight? No holding your bulky lappy, or 4inch panasonic portable dvd, constantly being distracted by the rather attractive airhostess-no!!! You can watch whatever you wanna (porn? ;) ) cos no one will see, and you can see nothing but the screen!!!

Put me down for two!

i think that would be like 900 pounds .... not too sure about that though

EDIT: CPU is a bit weak, too....and Lubidog, the display is a see-through-display (its translucent :p ) so you could look at the hostess AND watch your movies :D

EDIT 2: indeed it isnt, sorry, but it does only cover 1 eye ;)

Hmm, that reminds me of DBZ:

They also have see-through headset computers....

Back to topic: 1500$ for a 128MHz RISC device? meh...
Would be cool with 2 displays, 500MHz and 3D accelteration.
(OMG teh Virtualboy Advance 111)!! :lol:

(continuing the imagination from the passanger in the seat next to you's point of view...)

You wake up and glance over at the nerdy looking passanger next to you. planning on asking politley for him to move so you can go take a casual dump. instead you see something straped to his face... turning away you catch a glimpse of his pants, a tent is slowly being put up down there. Casualually the nerdy man start reaching his hand into his pants.... :blink:

Especially when you check the prices of HUD gear alone ...


But! I think you may have trouble getting hold of them ..

.. says DISCONTINUED :(



it may be discontinued but the page i linked to offers other discontinued items as well (Essential Realities' P5 glove for example), i think they are reselling the stuff...so grab yourself one if you live in the us...every one could be the last one :p

I wish this poma thing was more affordable, I'd get one and attempt to watch films and walk around at the same time.

anyone know if the VR gloves can me used as mice on a computer

that would rule

yes they can... im getting a P5 Glove because of that.... its about 60€ in germany,but kinda hard to find. You can use it as a mouse and as a joystick afaik, and some games (Hitman 2, Black&White) have patches to use it...think it would be cool to control the had in black&white with YOUR hand ((=
and because of the mouse mode u can use it for any ego shooter AND for office use (:)
I love it from what I Know.....if everything goes well I'll have one in a week....dont quite sure about the quality though, i will report ;)
