Most video viewing specs have the small hitch of cutting you off from the outside world by obliterating your view with their tiny screens.Not so with this spanking pair fresh in at the Apple Store. While still not recommended for driving, they manage to prop themselves far enough up your delicate conk to give you half an idea of what's going on in front of you while you watch South Park.Naturally, they’re designed to work seamlessly with video iPod; the battery pack doubles as a sturdy case for your player's protection and keeps the screen flickering for up to eight hours.Audio's taken care of by the built-in, noise-reducing ear buds and an in-wire remote keeps you in control. And, of course, you can don lycra and pretend to be Lieutenant Geordi La Forge from Star Trek, which is always a bonus.EssentialsMicroOptical MyVuPrice: £230On sale: NowContact: Apple StoreRelated stories:Zune and iPod get goggle eyedVideo review: iPod video headset for the fashion unconsciousOrange's trekkie video goggles
