    CEATEC: Hands on with Wink Glasses

    Matt wrote about Wink Glasses a couple of months ago. He was skeptical of their value. I found them on display at CEATEC 2009, and just had to try them out! In the photo above, you can see them in the “active” state, helpfully reminding me that it’s time to blink. Click on through for a thrilling video of Wink Glasses in action! HOT! Read More

End consumers will have the chance to test the TV out during next week’s CEATEC 2009. Read More

    Hint: Only wear the Wink Glasses when in the comfort of fellow nerds

    I’m guessing most of us have experienced the sensation of our eyes glossing over and and losing the ability to focus on the computer screen. It feels like your looking at Magic Eye art, almost like you’re looking through the screen. It usually happens after staring at the computer screen for endless hours during an all-nighter LAN party or while sitting in a cubical, mindlessly… Read More

    Feather or spectacles: New USB sticks double as bookmarks

    For some strange reason, USB seems to stimulate the imagination of crap gadget makers. This is especially true for Japanese companies, i.e Thanko, or (in this case) Solid Alliance. The Tokyo-based company, which just last week brought us the USB Ninja Star, now sells two weird USB sticks [JP] doubling as bookmarks (for real books). Read More

    Vuzix will be showing off some updated VR glasses at CES: the Wrap 920AV. The glasses are actually starting to look more and more like semi-normal frames that you might actually be able to wear on a plane, train, or bus without drawing too much attention. Read More

    $1 Liquid lens glasses could help millions

    Among the major goals of the world are decreasing hunger, stopping preventable yet widespread disease, and promoting education and literacy in third-world countries. That last one may get addressed soon, as a major issue among the extremely poor throughout the world is a lack of eyeglasses, and one inventor believes that with these cheap, adjustable liquid-lens spectacles, he may have… Read More

  • Always losing your keys, remote, wallet, glasses, etc.?

    The Find One, Find All key finder is straight cheese like a bad infomercial, which it actually is now that I’ve perused the site long enough. But I haven’t been able to find my keys for days and I could really use this. The FOFA-XD key fob and credit card-sized doohickeys have been around for a while, but the Glasses FOFA-XD is completely radical and new. Actually, it’s not… Read More

    Scottish glasses fill from the bottom while I fill from top

    If the river were lager and I were a duck, I’d buy a Trufill concept device designed for stadiums that can fill ten pints of beer in ten seconds and drink it all up. This amazing new concept uses magic and space technology to fill up glasses from the bottom up. How? I don’t know. No one knows. All we know is that we have to go visit FoodBev next week and if this amazing system is… Read More

  • Review: GUNNAR Optiks Precision Computing Glasses

    Do you get computer eyestrain? Do you want to look like a bad imitation of Hunter S Thompson? Do you have $200 to spend? Then try the GUNNAR Optiks digital eyewear. These are supposed to reduce eyestrain by decreasing glare and improving overall image quality, but do they work? Read More

    Gamer glasses coming soon

    Truckers have driving glasses, hunters have shooting glasses, and now gamers can have custom lens too. Currently, Gunnar Opitks have glasses geared towards heavy computer use (Halogen pictured above) but word is that the company is going to have custom lens just for gamers. The idea is that the glasses will of course reduce eyestrain, but also fit better with headphones. Gunnar Optiks specs… Read More

    Fluid filled eyeglass lenses for the optometrist-impaired

    Yeah… I see syringes and eyeballs and I just cringe. I don’t care what it’s for. I don’t care that it’s a good idea. I don’t care that this process will save money, time and get proper eyewear to those that need it. I see syringes and eyeballs. I don’t even wear contacts. The thought of sticking a finger in my eye on purpose sounds like the most… Read More

  • Smart Goggles 'remember' where you left your keys

    [photopress:smartgoggles.jpg,full,right] Yes, these glasses are ugly, but at the same time they’re incredibly useful. Developed in Japan, these Smart Goggles can “remember” things you’ve seen thanks to an on-board camera and computer. So, for example, let’s say you can’t find where you last put your keys or cellphone. The Goggles’ built-in computer… Read More

    Myvu Universal Edition review

    It’s hard being NinjaMan, Ninja of the Future. Just ask the stewards on my last flight. They had to put up with me looking like a total moron and loving every minute of it. Why? Because I was wearing the Myvu Universals, a pair of video glasses for the iPod — or any other device with a video output — that basically turns you into the coolest guy on the plane. These glasses… Read More

    I really do love these product designs that’ll never see the light of day. Today is no different, with Stitch customizable eyewear—glasses to you and me. They were created to give people an opportunity to wear glasses that truly match their personality. It seems many of these designers love to rag on big business and large manufacturers for creating derivative, uninspired junk all… Read More

    Subtitling Glasses Put the Text Where It Belongs

    I prefer watching imported movies in their native language with subtitles. It would suck to give a passionate performance only to have some hack voice actor dubbed over your lines, don’t you think? Subtitles on the screen, though, are distracting. I like the idea behind the subtitle glasses. Using a Universal Soldier-esque optics, the subtitle feed from your TV or DVD player is… Read More

    Future Samsung DLPs Can Handle "Mind-Blowing" 3D

    This year’s CES featured a super-secret demo (read: no media) of a tech that just might save DLP: 3D. According to our source, the 2007 Samsung Slim DLP HDTVs will be capable of handing “future 3D games, movies, and other programming via compatible glasses and hardware.” That’s fine, but not if it’s no better than playing Rad Racer on the NES with those awful… Read More
