Vuzix Wrap920 Will See the Light of Day in 2009 but Will not See Thru

Noah just broke the news:

Today we have received confirmation from Vuzix CEO Paul Travers that the highly anticipated Vuzix Wrap 920, previously known as the AV920 Wrap, will not, in fact, be a see-through head-mounted display (HMD). It will instead be a “see-around” model. This means that the LCD viewing elements will be opaque, as in previous models, but will be suspended behind a sunglasses-style lens without obstructing the peripheral view around the display.

Paul Travers can only say:

There is a pile of reasons that the Wrap series will be using this rather than “see thru”.
