The kooky TV hat is gaining attention after being introduced in January, even prompting Jimmy Kimmel to feature the hat during a gag video, reports the New York Post.
The ad featuring the hat — which looks like a baseball cap with a veil hanging down the front — has become a viral video sensation (to see the ad, check out this site for the hat ), the article says.
The hat becomes a sort of portable home-video theater by allowing wearers to slide in their iPod or other digital devices into a pocket at the end of the hat’s bill, with a custom lens magnifying the picture, the story says.
The hat’s manufacturer sold 1,000 of the TV Hats at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Since then, the hat has been sold to hundreds of thousands of consumers, the story says, citing the hat’s inventor, George Korper of SKM Industries, the article adds.
