The Vuzix iWear Video Headphones are the ultimate mobile entertainment system, compatible with any device supporting HDMI output, such as mobile phones, tablet devices, gaming consoles, PC's and Blu-Ray players.  Featuring dual HD Displays and revolutionary nano-optics, the iWear provides the equivalent experience of a 125" home television from 10 feet and allows the wearer to play games, interact with apps, watch 2D, 3D and 360° VR movies and even fly drones. With an integrated rechargeable battery the iWear Video Headphones are completely portable so users can enjoy them at home or on-the-go.

David Lock, Director of Operations EMEA Region said, "We have been monitoring the attendance of the Wearable technology show over the past couple of years and attended as delegates last year. With our iWear Video Headphones now becoming available across Europe and following its award winning success at CES in Las Vegas, we feel that this year's event in London is the ideal place to showcase the product to those that are keen on seeing the latest wearable trends that are coming to, and existing in today's markets."
