Japanese auto-fogging glasses prevent long stares at the computer screen
Sometimes geeks sit in front of computer screens for a really long time, and we forget to do stuff like eat food, drink water, and blink our eyes. That's why Masunaga, the company that designed Sarah Palin's glasses
, is coming out with a new product called Wink Glasses on August 10th. A sensor attached to the lenses detects blinking movements; if it doesn't log any activity for five seconds, an ultra-thin liquid crystal sheet pasted onto the lens surface fogs up and doesn't clear up until you blink again. The sensor is operated by a battery rechargeable via USB &mdash I guess that means that if you don't charge them, they don't fog up. The frame and sensor set will cost about $400.
