While we’ve always been on the Star Wars side of the Trek vs Wars debate, we’ll happily jump ship for the short-term to support this crazy new iPod accessory.

The iTheater may make you look like Jordi from the iconic space travel series or Robocop on dress-down day, but if you’re willing to sacrifice the ability to see where you’re walking just to enjoy a video podcast on the move, we doubt you’re that image conscious anyway.

Inside, the screen replicates your iPod’s with a 320x240 resolution and a battery that’s good for a maximum of about 10 hours, although unfortunately the connected earphones are only standard iPod quality.

It’s not the most practical of ‘Pod add-ons, but when did we ever let practicalities get in the way of a good gizmo? While the model we’ve been playing with is only a prototype, we’ll update you when this stylish piece of eyewear is available in the UK.
