Zeiss Introduces The Cinemizer

Zeiss Cinemizer

The German company Zeiss has created a really cool kind of eyewear that improves iPod and Nokia users’ viewing pleasure.

Introducing the Zeiss Cinemizer, portable home cinema goggles that can simulate a 39-inch display or a meter-sized movie screen at a distance of two meters.

How it works?

The Cinemizer can be connected to, say your N96 super class mobile phone or iPod (any model except for the Shuffle), and provide you with "a unique feature to display the TV signal from the integrated DVB-T receiver." The sound comes out via two flexible earphones mounted to the frame.

The eyewear can be adjusted to fit the user’s head, the bridge of the nose, as well as the ears. For iPod users, Zeiss has created holders to match each iPod model so it can be stored safely during your viewing time.

The Cinemizer gives you up to four hours of viewing time, thanks to its rechargeable battery.

The Zeiss Cinemizer also offers a neat little trick for people with vision problems: short- and farsightedness up to 3.5 D can be set on the video eyewear.
