Video glasses are one of the things I just never saw a use for. Not only do you look like a goon when you wear them, but you can’t see what it going on around you either. That is not such a good thing if you need to be able to see what is going on around you at work or in other situations.

Brother has unveiled a new set of video glasses using tech from its printers that beams images directly on the retina of your eye. The small projector is attached to the side of the clear glasses and you can see what is going on around you with both eyes.

Brother QL-570 label printerBrother has a new label-printing product hitting CES this year that packs some impressive features into a small package. This Brother QL-570, designed with the small business in mind, connects to your PC or Mac via USB and has included software to make label printing relatively easy and actually pretty fast.

The software has a few print modes ranging from basically taking a screen shot to highlighting and printing or actually creating high quality labels. It supports up to 300 x 600 dpi resolution and can print out logos or graphics making professional looking labels for your letters, products or anything else you might get label-happy with. The only nice feature about this label printer aside from it’s reasonable $100 price tag is the speed. It can push out simple text-only labels faster than 1 per second at a rate of 68 per minute.
