Bleeding Edge TV 447: PixelOptics shows us the glasses of the future

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.

Danny Gokey“I want to come out with a line of glasses,” Danny Gokey revealed after his third-place finish on . “I would really like to start a Danny line or a Gokey line.”

Sarah PalinMichelle Obama on The View

Had Hillary Clinton won the Democratic nomination, there’s a chance we would be talking about a demand on pantsuits right now. (Probably not, but it’s possible.) But since she wasn’t, the fashion focus has now been placed on the other females currently in the political spotlight.

Ever since Sarah Palin’s appearances at the Republic National Convention, interest in the candidate’s $375 glasses have reportedly quadrupled. According to Italee Optics Inc., the manufacturer is now having to produce the eyewear around the clock.

This news comes months after Michelle Obama appeared on The View in another must-have piece. Once it was revealed that her black-and-white dress was an off the rack item purchased at White House Black Market, the retailer was flooded with calls for the $148 garment.

Virtual GogglesGoggles View

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.
