Here we go again with another installment of the Crave Giveaway of the Week. This week's gadget: The Vuzix AV310 wearable display.
How's it work? Well, you connect your iPod, iPhone, or portable DVD player to it with the included cable, strap this puppy on, and your small video screen is magically transformed into a large, 16:9, wide-screen home theater with a virtual 52-inch display (as seen from 9 feet). It may not have the highest resolution (read: the screen isn't supersharp), but there's a certain novelty to the whole apparatus--and it's sure to get you some attention if you wear it around in public.
Normally, the Vuzix AV310 costs about $250, but you have a chance to get one gratis.
So, how do you try to win a free Vuzix AV310? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.
