One of my ambitions is to create a wearable computer. The most complicated part in this process is a head-mounted display. Recently, two-eye (goggle-style) head-mounted displays have seen an inexplicable upsurge in popularity, and as a result two-eye displays are actually substantially less expensive than their one-eye brethren.
Upon seeing a series of pictures showing how a Myvu Crystal display could be taken apart and turned into a one-eye display, I decided to do it myself. This is the result, a resounding success if I may say so myself.
The Myvu Crystal is an ideal candidate because: 1) The components for the two eyes are entirely detached, so all it takes to use only one eye's display is to remove the other. 2) Its resolution is 640x480, which is of course quite small for a "real" monitor, but is quite high for a cheap head-mounted display. 3) It's fairly hackable.
