With dual electronic viewfinders, rather than a direct optical path, they'll be 
useless once the battery's flat.

They do sound interesting though, and they might potentially be better than 
optical binoculars in certain conditions. A 3 hour battery life sounds very 
limiting, but if they hibernate when you're not using them then that could mean 
they'll last a few days of normal use.

I wonder what the resolution of the viewfinders is. As far as I know, the best 
available EVFs for still cameras are only just reaching acceptable levels now, 
so I don't hold much hope for these being as good.

It would also be interesting to see how they cope with backlit subjects, if 
it's really just a pair of cameras.
