Easy listening and watching on the Sony Glasstron

February 2, 2000
Web posted at: 1:48 PM EST (1848 GMT)

(CNN) -- This past Christmas, Sony has brought to life one of a device straight out of the futuristic Jetsons cartoon: a big-screen TV the size of a pair of glasses. The Sony Glasstron Personal LCD Monitor (PLM-A35) is a pint-sized device that claims to be able to display a 52" color TV screen, as it would be seen at a distance of six feet. This portable little wonder fits like a pair of glasses, and provides impressive video and sound quality.

On the inside of the glasses, are two concave mirrors that reflect the tiny LCD picture to each eye and using the wonders of binocular vision, combines the two pictures into a single visual image. Looking into the device gives the feeling of being in a movie theater. A friend jokingly said that they expected three heads to pop up in the front and start give running comedic commentary on the show, a la "Mystery Science Theater 3000."
