Darpa’s Hologram Goggles Will Call In The Drones

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

When you need to send in deadly robots, holograms might be the answer. As it is right now, authorizing and targeting air strikes is a process that can be bureaucratic. Sometimes it takes lawyers, intelligence analysts, air controllers, and commanders at multiple layers to get it done.

Well DARPA has a new idea. Give the job to one guy on the ground who can control a drone or manned plane that’s circling above. A single man is low profile enough to slip into areas that need slipping into without alarming the locals and giving away his position. The soldier would use the goggles to view markers and call in airstrikes.

Mejikara Anti-Wrinkle Glasses make you look like a low budget superhero

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

Here in the US most people get rid of wrinkles by using moisturizing face cream, or Botox. The latter just makes you look like you are surprised all of the time and it must be really hard to move your face. Folks in Japan have a better way.

The Mejikara Anti-Wrinkle Glasses are designed to stop wrinkles before they happen, while at the same time making you look like you have a cheap superhero mask on. Just wear these silly yellow goggles for 5 minutes each day and supposedly will end up looking less old and tired. Because “On the inside of the Mejikara there are specially-designed ridges which massage and help your skin.”

Custom made Prescription Beer GogglesSome of us wear Beer goggles all of the time and just aren’t that choosy. To these people everyone is attractive. Until the next morning. Others wear Beer goggles only after they’ve had way too many beers. Same result in the morning. Why? Because your Beer goggles wear off.

You shouldn’t be more discriminating, you just need to never ever take your Beer goggles off. That way you won’t be disappointed. That’s where UrbanSpectacles.com comes in. They will manufacture prescription Beer goggles. Every girl will look great, plus you’ll be fashionable. All you need to do is send them your empty beer containers and they will use them as housing for prescription lenses, in the desired tint.

Steampunk Goggles are a work of genius

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2008

Steampunk Goggles are a work of geniusThere are Steampunk googles, and then there are Steampunk goggles that are quality made and look pretty damn spiffy too. The metal components that you see in this pair are solid milled titanium, coated in gold colored titanium nitride. That’s pretty cool by itself, but these goggles also feature irises that can be opened and closed through independent sliders.

If that isn’t enough to get your Steampunk blood boiling with steam power, the photochromatic lenses automatically tint in sunlight. The leather is actually bolted to the eyepieces, using 48 tiny bolts plus another four for the nosepiece. The creator obviously believes in quality.

Commuter sleep goggles rely on the kindness of strangers

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 17th, 2008

Commuter sleep goggles rely on the kindness of strangersPyocotan has a great idea with their “Noriko-san”, a mask that’s designed for napping commuters. But it has one big drawback. It relies on the kindness of other humans around you. The idea is this: If you’ve got a long commute on a train, you are probably tired and want to nap. But you don’t want to miss your stop and be late for work. It blocks light and lets you rest, with a display in front that shows what stop you plan on getting off at.

That’s where your fellow humans come in. These people around you can wake you up when you approach your stop, should you be in dreamland. Sadly, that’s why this device is doomed to fail. Lets face it, people suck. Half of them would leave you bleeding if you got stabbed. BUT it’s a great idea and who knows, maybe it would encourage some interaction.

Night Vision Goggles get affordable, pervs rejoiceNight vision used to be something that we all wished we could use. But in order to use it, one had to afford it, which was impossible in days gone by. But nowadays anybody can get in on the fun, whether you are out in the woods hunting or engaging in extremely pervy activities.

With this pair of EyeClops Night Vision Goggles you see up to 50 feet in pitch black darkness, and it has a flip up eye piece in case the lights get turned on. You’re going to want to have a bunch of spare AA batteries on you though as it takes up to 5 of them. A very affordable $90. By the way, it’s not cool or normal to stare at sleeping people in the dark. Just so you know. Stop being a perv and use this gear to catch bigfoot or something.

Radioactive usb sheep, with goggles

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2008

Radioactive usb sheep, with gogglesIt takes a special kind of nerd to have a glowing radioactive USB sheep on his desk. One who wears goggles even. It’s based on the Seamour Sheep comic series, which follows the misadventures of Seamour and presumably his…sheep. Just plug this little guy into your USB port, dim the lights, and enjoy the smooth soft hues of a glowing electric sheep. Much like these animals, the placing of his USB cord seems unfortunate, but at least no farmer is backing him to the edge of a cliff. You can own one of these limited edition of 500 radioactive sheep for $69. Seems expensive for a glowing sheep, but what do I know?


Pilot View FPV 2400 puts you inside RC vehicles

Pilot View FPV 2400 puts you inside RC vehicles
This device explains a long held theory of mine. Geordi LaForge was not blind, he was controlling remote-controlled vehicles when he should have been focusing on his engineering duties. The Pilot View FPV 2400 is designed for use with radio-controlled aircraft and cars.

There’s a wireless camera in the cockpit that sends live first-person footage to the freaky goggles that Fabio is wearing in the pic.(Wait that’s a gal. Sorry.) It’s a pretty awesome idea, but for $549, there are probably better ways to spend the money. And let’s face it, they need to up the design of the visor.

Improve Your View With iPod Video Goggles

Posted in Glasses,iPod Accessories by Darrin Olson on August 22nd, 2007

iPod video goggles lets you watch video from your iPod with a bigger viewNo longer do you have to squint your eyes up close to your video iPod to watch recorded shows. These iPod Video Goggles plug directly into your iPod to give you a much wider view of your saved videos without the need for a large screen. They require no additional batteries or cables and are powered by the iPod, giving as much as 4 hours of video from the 80GB iPod.

The video goggles utilize two 24-bit color SolidOptex LCD’s to provide 320 x 240 resolution at a 50–60 Hz frame rate to give a view that’s about equivalent to viewing a 24″ TV at around 6 feet away. This hands-free, personal iPod video watching experience doesn’t come real cheap however; the iPod goggles will run you a cool $200 each.
