Movie Glasses Answered

I had an idea the other night, but no idea of how to go about it.

I Want to take two small screens probably about one to two inches big, then mount them on sunglasses and somehow input movie from an HDMI or an HDMI micro. like This: http://www.chinavasion.com/cool-gadgets/60-inch-virtual-video-screen-glasses-for-iphone-ipad-ipod/ but for anything that can output HDMI. i thought about this when i was on the plane and was tired of the people behind me asking to tilt the monitor -.- i have a Thrill 4G that uses a Micro HDMI to HDMI so im sure it would work with my phone and many others if we did it(although users without that HDMI port would need the adapter that makes Mirco USB to HDMI aswell)

so basicly..
Android phone to adapter that has HDMI in to a pair of 2" screens to output movie

There are many differnt versions of glasses like those. Most of them will connect to a PC/Laptop through USB. Some have regular AV connectors. So you can use an adapter or 2 to get them connected to whatever video source you want to use.

In the long run it would be cheaper to buy a set of these glasses rather then trying to build your own pair. The modify them to better suit your needs.
