emPower glasses can be charged for reading

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2011

emPower wants to change the way that you use your reading glasses. Now they will need to be charged. The emPower glasses have tiny batteries inside, which power microchips that are capable of turning extra reading power on and off as needed.

The idea is that these would phase out bifocals, which older people often need. These glasses will use liquid crystals to simulate the lower part of the lens in a pair of bifocals. The crystals can change how the lenses refract or bend light, similar to how standard glasses do this with different levels of thickness.

It can’t be easy being hearing impaired. Many can read lips, but that may not be the easiest way depending on the situation. Not everyone moves their lips the same way to make the same words, after all. But a new designer has just come up with a great way to make life easier. Wear glasses.

These speech-to-text glasses are a great concept. Someone has to make these a reality. They are designed by a Danish designer by the name of Mads Hindhede. The Babel Fisk glasses can allow the deaf to read what you’re saying, while you’re saying it.

Mejikara Anti-Wrinkle Glasses make you look like a low budget superhero

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

Here in the US most people get rid of wrinkles by using moisturizing face cream, or Botox. The latter just makes you look like you are surprised all of the time and it must be really hard to move your face. Folks in Japan have a better way.

The Mejikara Anti-Wrinkle Glasses are designed to stop wrinkles before they happen, while at the same time making you look like you have a cheap superhero mask on. Just wear these silly yellow goggles for 5 minutes each day and supposedly will end up looking less old and tired. Because “On the inside of the Mejikara there are specially-designed ridges which massage and help your skin.”
