MyVu Upgrades Personal Video Viewer System

I have one of the original MyVu systems. I bought it so that when I'm flying and want to tune out and watch a movie that is loaded on my iPod, I can completely immerse myself in the experience. However, these devices are well suited to those who don't have over the patient screens for entertainment. The MyVu people keep making improvements and now have the latest model available.

Called the Crystal EV, the device now has the equivalent viewing of a 64 inch screen right in front of your eyes. I'm jealous as the company says this is a 30% improvement over the model that I own. They also have gone the extra mile by achieving Apple iPhone Certification and Nokia Forum status.
