Expanding its (astoundingly) growing list of head mounted displays, 22Moo is offering two more (likely rebadged) units to literally gander at, and is going all out with its marketing ploys to connect these gaudy headpieces to some of the trendiest products out. The lightweight i-Vision 230 comes in white (surprised?), red, and silver color schemes, features a ‘virtual display’ of 35-inches from 2-meters away, rocks a 320 x 240 resolution LCD, and plays nice with your ‘video iPod, Zune, Wii, and Xbox 360‘ (not to mention basically any other vanilla video source). The beefed-up Argo+PC adds ‘PlayStation 3 and set-top box’ compatibility, features twin 640 x 480 resolution LCDs, a detachable light shield, stereo headphones, and generates a virtual image of 43-inches. Additionally, this set can reproduce ‘3D stereoscopic images’ if used with a ‘compatible video card.’ Both eyewear devices are currently available for those interested, and while the i-Vision 230 will run you $250, the presumably Star Trek-approved Argo+PC (pictured after the break) will demand $350.
