I've been interested to try this for a while, using my Samsung Galaxy S. I did some googling on the matter, and it seems what I'm looking for exists for some devices. I'm curous if it's doable with the Galaxy S too, using the proper hardware.
I use features like messenger and web browsing even when going outside, and also enjoy finding inventive ways to do things with my computer and phone. As of recent, I've been interested in the possibility of connecting a wearable screen that could allow leaving an application open (such as an IRC channel to see a chat) and being able to see what's happening without having to look at the phone (and of course still see where you're going on the street :P ). Such can be achieved using a small transparent screen, which could be connected to a lens and worn on the eye.
I never owned such a device, but seen that such hardware exist, called virtual googles. Some are sold at reasonable prices too. They're supposedly something like this. I found models that use USB connection, but I'm not sure if any support video-jack input (like this). For the Galaxy S, that's likely the only type of input that would work. So far, I seen some that are compatible with the iPhone and iPod.
Anyway, my question is: Would the Galaxy S support virtual glasses using jack video output? Or more simply, does it support video + audio output through a single jack for a standalone screen (not TV)? Possibly one that isn't powered by its own battery... since I imagine a small screen should to take electricity from the phone without using an amplifier, like headphones do.
I'm not experienced in this domain, so bare with me if I say something stupid :P Don't even know if such googles can be used as an "augmented reality" device that can be worn anywhere. Still, for a computer fanatic like myself, this would be a fun way to stay connected and do things more easily, and I'd sure be interested to try it out
