Macworld 2011: Lapdome, Meet TV Hat

Back in 2008, I was introduced to something amazing. It was the Lapdome, and I haven't seen anything like it since. That is, until I stumbled across the TV Hat at this year's Macworld expo.

The TV Hat allows you to view your iPhone or iPod Touch movies privately, or while outdoors, thanks to an extra long billed hat or visor. The viewing experience? Not too shabby. The fit? Way too heavy; the hat kept sliding forward off of my head due to the weight of the iPhone. But at $30, the TV Hat would make a great gag gift for your movie-watching pals, or frequent campers whose idea of "roughing it" means not watching shows on their HDTV. It certainly shades the light from the inside of the viewing tunnel, and thankfully, it also shields your face from onlookers.
