Orange is set to launch a pair of video glasses that enable gadget lovers to watch films in widescreen, any time, anywhere. Designed by the Orange in-house team, they connect to 3G video phones and visuals appear on the inside of two lenses that the eye sees as one single image. The glasses underwent a test run in France this Christmas and are available in Orange shops in larger French cities. They will be on sale in the UK after this summer and are expected to cost about €300 (£206). The glasses are currently only compatible with a Samsung D600 mobile phone, but will connect to a portable DVD player or digital camera.
