This is start-up ATO's current video "sleeve" called the iSee 360. The device, which slips over several different iPods from Apple Computer, turns an iPod into a video recorder and player.
In about five months, the San Carlos, Calif.-based company will launch a version of the device capable of playing high-definition video. Compatible with MPEG 4, Divx, HD.264 and other video formats, the high-definition version of the iSee is expected to sell for $199 to $250.
