This Myvu Solo came a part of a promotional email and I thought it was an interesting idea. Just wondered if anyone had any experience with these or something like them?

Has anyone ever tried these?

yes I have used them last year at the MTV VMAs, they looked cool but were more annoying than useful to me, just my two cents

If you mean for Steadicam use, Garrett tried something similar on his first model. This was before portable video monitors, so he had a fibre-optic cable from the camera viewfinder to his eye. I've tried it, and it's sick-making having your vision not change when you move your head, but change when you move the rig. How he managed to shoot such a great show-reel with this is beyond me; but pretty much everything Garrett does is beyond me.
If I misunderstand your question, and you know all this, please excuse me.

I tried a pair of video glasses quite a few years ago and, like Chris, found it very disorientating. Similar to using gyro stabilized lenses or binoculars from a helicopter, no doubt someone could learn to get used to it!

As Chris and Robin have stated the system is disorientating considering you are trying to view an image 1" if that away from one of your eyes and watch where you are going with the other through the glasses which in the one's I tried where very tinted(nd9) so you could not see much through them anyway .
Have a great time at the games ok

one eye is crazy enough given what we have today. But to use both you must be a Zen master.
