Coming to an eye near you: video glasses
They are the ultimate gadget for anyone bored in a queue or commuting to and from work: video sunglasses, according to the Times Online.
"Connected to a portable DVD player, mobile phone or digital camera, the Teleglass projects films, text messages or pictures directly on to the left lens of the glasses, filling the vision in that eye but leaving the other free to allow the viewer to move around.
The gadget's manufacturer, Scalar, a Japanese medical technology company, says that the design is a cross between the magnifiers used by dentists and the hands-free displays that help helicopter pilots to aim a machinegun."
