Bleeding Edge TV 338: Gunnar Optiks 3D and computer glasses

We caught up with the folks behind Gunnar Optiks, makers of high quality 3D glasses, as well as some great computer glasses, and outdoor fashion shades as well. We wanted to focus specifically on the 3D technology, as well as the computer shades, since we know a lot of you out there spend hours looking at computer monitors, television displays, and mobile devices screens all day. The company is founded and run by people with some serious optics knowledge, and they are about to hit us hard with purchasable 3D glasses, including prescription glasses, so you have your own pair when you hit theaters, rather than the generic huge ones.

The computer glasses I was originally skeptical about, but after wearing them for just a few minutes, you realize the benefit. Here are the Gunnar computer glasses that we’ve been rocking recently, if you are interested. Definitely worth it, we say. Hit the video above for all details on what Gunnar Optiks has going on.

A big thank you to Bing for sponsoring Gear Live’s CES 2010 coverage.

Thanks Ouisri for sharing a nice information with all of us.I am delighted to hear this news.

If that is the case, then why are both tasters and nontasters still present in the human population? Based on the rules of natural selection, shouldn't all of the nontasters have died off early in our evolution? The answer is complex, Dr. Wooding said, noting that some things that taste bitter are used as medicine, such as compounds in certain tree barks that help protect against malaria. He and his colleagues -- Drs. Dennis Drayna and Un-kyung Kim at the National Institutes of Health, along with Drs. Lynn Jorde and Michael Barnshad at the University of Utah -- analyzed the gene for PTC sensitivity for certain "signatures" of natural selection that would tell them how the gene has changed over time. They found very strong evidence that within humans, a process called "balancing natural selection" has taken place. "This is a kind of natural selection that keeps two different forms of the same gene active in a population," Dr. Wooding said. "In this case they are the taster and the nontaster forms. In the absence of this type of natural selection, you would expect one form to dominate. That hasn't happened here because for some reason, there is not a strong advantage of one over the other. It's an unusual situation." --------------------- 70-569 | 70-571 | 70-577 | 70-579

Everything is good, design, function, weight, performance and price too. Only one thing is a timer that missing...
