Ray-Ban shades are popular enough as it is, but the company isn't resting on its laurels. Instead, it's introducing a new foldable model of its iconic Aviator sunglasses. This new addition to the 55-year old Aviator line will sell for between $195 and $295, depending on style. You can find them in some retail shops now, and they'll be available on the Ray-Ban site in short order as well if you'd rather purchase directly.

We chat with Mark Graham of PixelOptics in this episode. PixelOptics impressed us with its futuristic take on corrective vision and glasses. As you'll see, they've been able to put liquid crystal into the lenses, along with circuitry in the frame, that allows you to enable and disable the bifocal mode on your glasses with a tap of the frame. You can also enable an auto on/off by way of the accelerometer. Even if you don't wear glasses, this is a very cool look at what can be done. This video was recorded at CES 2012.

In a world of 1s and 0s…are you a zero, or The One? The Matrix exists, at least in the world of Russian designer Alexei Shulgin. He has created goggles that use filters to transform reality into a virtual world. The artist says that they work similar to filters in Photoshop, such as inverted colors and boost coloration. The glasses’ images can be projected on a screen and can work for several hours on one charge. We understand that the gadget really doesn’t do anything, still there is always room for another warped view of the planet.
