It seems like smartphone screens are getting bigger and bigger all the time. But you know what’s even bigger than a 5.3 inch Samsung Galaxy Note display? A virtual 80 inch screen floating in space before your eyes.

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is a wearable display that fits inside a pair of glasses and shines a 960 x 650 pixel display less than an inch from your face so that it looks like an enormous screen.

The display is semi-transparent, so you can look at the screen and past the screen at the same time, making sure you don’t fall into a ditch if you’re watching a video while walking down the street — assuming you’re not too absorbed in the movies.

Epson’s BT-100 is running Google Android 2.2 and features 1GB of storage, and comes with a 4GB microSDHC card It supports and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. It gets up to 6 hours of battery life and supports Adobe Flash.

You can use the device to surf the web, watch videos, or run some other Android apps using a handheld controller for navigation.

The Moverio BT-100 launched in Japan late last year. Now it’s available in the US for $700.

The funny looks people will give you while wearing this contraption in public? Priceless.
