Imagine the following situation: you are sitting on a train and have a long journey ahead of you. You can only kill so much time through reading and listening to music. You have an iPod, but it isn’t music that is helping you pass the time — it is a favorite movie that you can now watch away from home. You get out your video goggles, connect them to your iPod, place them on your head and voilà, it’s as if you are sitting in a movie theater. The best part: it is not just imagination.
The cinemizer from Carl Zeiss simulates a 115 cm (45 inches) screen at a distance of two meters. You can watch your favorite movies whenever and wherever: in a plane, at the pool, at the gym or even if you have to sit in a waiting room for what seems like an eternity. Put it on, turn it on and get watching.
It was designed by the internationally renowned agency frog design. The mobile one-man theater is available in five different color combinations. And if it’s a long movie — not a problem. The cinemizer has a battery life of at least four hours. Eyeglass wearers can also adjust each eye to +/-3.5 diopters. The adjustable earpieces and replaceable nose pads ensure an optimal fit for everyone. The high wearing comfort guarantees that you can fully concentrate on your movie. And you are well prepared for the cinema of the future: at the push of a button, 3D movies let you be a part of the action.
“Are we there yet,” is a thing of the past; you may even be wishing that your trip was just a tad bit longer. Now, only a muffled voice over the intercom can put an early end to your movie experience: "We are arriving at our destination."
