It isn't hd but for my purposes it's more than sufficient .
Paul R
This device runs Android 2.2 (froyo) which is a bit annoying from both a user (apps missing in app store) and a developer (Froyo NIO bug frustrated me) perspective.
J
I imagine anyone who isn't technically literate buying these and having absolutely no idea what to do afterwards while wanting to watch videos.

I've had these for a few days now. Here are my initial impressions.

This is an interesting toy. There are two components to it: the glasses, and the Android box the glasses plug in to. First I'll focus on the Android box. Since there is no touch screen there is a touchpad on the device. This touchpad is not very intuitive. It took me far longer than it should have to figure out how to do "swipe" gestures (like unlocking the screen). The problem was I kept trying to do a more click and drag gesture like on a laptop, which is, as it turns out, quite different. So on a laptop when not using a physical button you might "double tap" the touchpad to get a click registered, then drag your finger. This touchpad works pretty much just like a touch screen: tap and hold, then drag your finger. Which makes sense I suppose since this is an Android device, it just felt rather unnatural on a touchpad initially.

This is more of an Android issue, but it can be difficult to determine where the mouse cursor is. Typically on devices with touchpads (laptops and such) the cursor is always on the screen. Here the cursor is only on the screen when you are touching the touchpad. This is probably so that apps don't have to implement one interface for touchscreens and one for mice, but it can be a bit jarring from a user perspective. It's also extremely difficult to type with the onscreen keyboard (I'm having to use the predictive text quite a bit).

This device runs Android 2.2 (froyo) which is a bit annoying from both a user (apps missing in app store) and a developer (Froyo NIO bug frustrated me) perspective.

One of the key things this thing is advertised to be for is to watch movies (though I did not buy it primarily for that).

I bought this hoping to play with it for the novelty and maybe even run a remote desktop application to connect to a computer.

The transparent video overlay over reality is pretty cool though I find it hard to see the transparency to be little more then a way to allow someone to shift their focus from the video to what is going on around them more easily without taking the glasses off. If you're staring at the video you're paying attention to the surroundings as much as someone looking at a book and noting movement in their peripheral vision. The only difference is you can notice movement behind the video. If you focus on the video you're not looking behind the video, and if you're looking behind the video you're not gonna be able to comprehend the video unless some people are exceedingly more talented then me. I'm sure that would change for augmented reality apps that are actually purposefully overlaying onto real world content (but there's no built in camera so you'd have to roll your own camera to provide a video reference to overlay anything.

Most electronic devices have some juice in them upon arrival. I was hoping to see the boot screen pop up and enjoy what I'd eagerly been stuck waiting by USPS for but it wouldn't turn on. It needed a decent charge before I was able to use it. (Obviously this isn't a negative for the device just, don't expect to rip the box open and get a sampling before charging.) It wouldn't even turn on plugged in for a bit.

Out of the box, the user interface is a little awkward but I had less trouble then the reviewer J did. Essentially, you hover over a button or something like the lock screen and then apply slight pressure and keep it there consistently until it accepts it.

Well made, good resolution.

I purchased these to develop a vision enhancement device for blind persons who's vision would be aided by brighter and magnified images displayed over reality. This is an engineering project which will take some them and one I hope others do as there are a lot of us with macular degeneration who need help and ably a few of us who are engineers. Without apple retina displays and Beecheres I could not do even this. I would be interested in others ideas.

The operating system froyo doesn't work with the google store. If you wish to use lots of apps , you should probably wait for the bt200. I bought it as a media player and watching movies on it is great. It isn't hd but for my purposes it's more than sufficient .
