Video Game Sunglasses Keep the Pixels out of Your Eyes

Video Game Sunglasses Keep the Pixels out of Your Eyes
While I question the practicality of these perforated “sunglasses,” there’s no question at all about their awesomeness – as they’re embellished with cool images from pop culture and retro video games. According to their creator, Hong Kong-based artist Millie Chiu, the tiny holes actually can help short-sighted or long-sighted vision by filtering out indirect light sources – the result being sharper vision.

Prism Glasses Let You See Straight While Lying Down

Prism Glasses Let You See Straight While Lying Down
I read in bed a lot. I also watch TV in bed a lot. In fact, there’s a lot of things I do in bed that I probably shouldn’t (like eat dinner – yes, I do that sometimes), but sometimes, I just can’t help it.

DIY Google Glasses Provide Translation via Subtitles

DIY Google Glasses Provide Translation via Subtitles
The first time we featured programmer Will Powell, we learned how he was able to make a crude version of Google’s Project Glass augmented reality glasses.

Sony Subtitle Glasses Add Captions for the Deaf
If you’re have difficulty hearing or are deaf, going to the movies can be a challenge unless you manage to find a showing or a theater with special projected captions. Thanks to a new Sony technology, you can now view captions on any showing of a digitally-projected film, without requiring that everyone watch the captions.

O2Amp Mood Divining Glasses Let You See How Others are Feeling
These new glasses are supposed to amplify the wearer’s ability to interpret the emotions and health of other people, by emphasizing the differences in color as well as brightness of their skin tone. The O2amp glasses were developed by 2AI Labs and I’d like to try them out to see how accurately they work.

Instaglasses: Let You See The World Through Instagram-Filtered Lenses
Do you love Instagram? How about seeing the world through Instagram filters? That’s the idea behind the Instaglasses. While these glasses are just a concept and probably will never be made, it does make you think what you could achieve with augmented reality glasses and the right software.

Google’s Project Glass Made Real by One Man, Looks Even Dorkier

Google’s Project Glass Made Real by One Man, Looks Even Dorkier
Google already has prototypes of their Project Glass headset, but it seems only a select few of their employees have access to it. That’s outrageous! But wait, entitled Internet person, before you make an appeal to change the ending of Google or some other weird 21st century demonstration of barbarism, calm down.

Google Project Glass Voice-activated Augmented Reality Headset: For a Convenient, Douchebag-Filled Future
If you think people who rock Bluetooth headsets are funny or annoying, wait til you see Google’s augmented reality project. While Project Glass is currently nothing more than a series of mock-ups and a concept video, we know that Google has the resources – and motivation – to fill our future with even more people shouting at the air.

Flipcase is a Space-Saving Collapsible Sunglass Case
I used to hang my sunglasses on my collar, but I stopped after dropping them one too many times every time I’d bend down, even the slightest, to pick something up. I’ve since switched to actual hard cases, and while they do a great job of protecting my shades, they’re incredibly bulky.

Reversing Goggles Turn Your Whole World Upside-Down

Reversing Goggles Turn Your Whole World Upside-Down
Frankly, I think we’ve got enough problems worrying about people bumping into you on the sidewalk while they’ve got their heads bent down texting and surfing the web. If that wasn’t bad enough, now you could run into someone because the entire world is upside-down for them.

Vuzix Licenses Nokia Tech for Video Glasses with See-through Optics
Vuzix makes a bunch of different styles of video glasses that put small screens in front of your eyes to simulate a large screen. The last set of video glasses we talked about from the company was the Wrap 1200 that simulated a 75-inch screen.

Vuzix Wrap 1200 3D Video Goggles: 75 Inches in Your Pocket
If you thought that those Vuzix augmented reality glasses were hot, check out these new ones, which let you take a 3D-capable big screen with you everywhere you go. Yep, 3D isn’t so hot anymore, but I’ve always wanted goggles like these anyhow – especially for long trips.

Dry Eyes Are a Thing of the Past With the J!NS Moisture Glasses

Dry Eyes Are a Thing of the Past With the J!NS Moisture Glasses
I carry a small bottle of Eye-Mo in my handbag wherever I go, just in case my eyes begin to feel dry while I’m out at work or doing errands. I once ran out of Eye Mo and literally pinched myself so hard, just so I could cry some tears and bring back some moisture into them.
