A new iPod product promises video playback for iPod nanos, shuffles and fourth-generation iPods.

Australian firm 22Moo has revealed that it will be entering the final testing phase of its video playback glasses, which supply video playback to non-video-ready iPods.

It's a three-part system that includes the glasses, a battery pack and a USB Host Media Player. The last element of the solution enables video playback of MPEG1, MPEG4, WMA, MP3 and JPEG files.

All a user needs to do is drag and drop any of the supported files to the iPod when mounted on a PC/Mac and they will be ready to use, the company claims.

The solution is expected to cost $350 when it reaches the US, while UK plans haven't been confirmed.
