Sci-Fi Device Turns iPod into Private Theater
Yes, iPod has a great little screen. But why not relax with a 44-inch virtual screen—a movie experience that fits right in your pocket. Check the specs:
- Twin high-resolution 320x240 (230,000 pixels) LCD Displays
- Equivalent to a 44" screen viewed at 9 feet
- 24-bit True color (16 million colors)
- Weighs 4 oz
- iPod battery life remains the same as if using the iPod screen
- 60 Hz update rates
Incredibly, you get all this for just $300.
