Being a glasses wearer myself, I have often thought about the different things that we could attach or modify to make glasses amazing and a must have, whether or not you have bad vision.
One of the things that I would recommend to whoever makes these things is something that everyone has thought about but never been taken seriously. I’m talking about windscreen wipers (the things on the windscreen of your car that get rid of the rain) on the frames of the glasses.
We’ve all had those moments when you had a long walk home out in the cold and rain, only to walk into a warm room and have your glasses fog up, making you temporarily blind. You’ve then had to take them off and wipe them on your sleeve or cloth and that is literally just too much effort.
Something like this would be perfect:
Except maybe not as, erm, gay.
Another thing that I’ve been thinking about adding on is something that could project a heads-up display so you can do amazing things that were never thought possible with your regular eyes, such as see how many bullets are left in your gun.
Definitely very useful.
In all seriousness, maybe it could pick up and give you information on an unknown object in your vision. Say it could detect what you were looking at and give you a brief description of what it is. Or maybe even a pair that could pick up foreign languages and display the meaning of what they are actually saying because let’s face it, who can be bothered to learn another language? This could also work for the hard of hearing and just display subtitles couldn’t it?
Kind of like Siri, but perched on your nose.
There it is: how glasses could be amazing and from the future time where wars are fought on tablets.
