ROCHESTER, NY – SEPTEMBER 11th, 2007– Vuzix Corporation, the leading manufacturer of video eyewear and personal display devices, is proud to announce the launch and shipping of the highly anticipated iWear® VR920. Winner of the 2007 CES Innovations Award, the VR920 is the world’s first fully immersive virtual reality Video Eyewear.

From flight simulators and first-person shooters to online strategy and war games, the VR920 will revolutionize how games are played and developed. This technology will be the centerpiece in the emerging virtual reality and social gaming market.”
In addition to the video gaming experience, reviewers are touting the iWear® VR920 as the most secure way to view all types of content.
