Adding to the ever-increasing collection of big-name brands and fashion lines delivering 3D eyewear to the market, Armani has today announced their first ever 3D eyewear to be released by A|X Armani Exchange. The aesthetic for these glasses is described as a fusion of 80's retro with a modern yet classic navigator shape. These glasses work with "the most popular 3D format found in movie theaters" which we're just going to assume means RealD. These glasses also have an array of features which makes them seem like a pretty good candidate for everyday use as well as for chilling in the theater watching Tron Legacy, Freddy's Dead, or Pig Robots from Planet 9.
PixelOptics has announced the world's first electronic focusing lens, emPower. These electronic eyeglasses benefit users more because they allow them to have a better, less blurry view of the world. After a demonstration, we were told that when activated by the press of a button, the liquid crystal electronic lens focuses to the users prescription.
Sunglasses may not be the fashion trend they used to be (that may not be a bad thing), but that's not stopping one designer from giving the sunglasses a brand new way from stopping the sun from invading your eyes. Instead of coating the entire lens of your sunglasses, designer Chris Mullin wants to be able to focus on the sun directly, and use what he calls a Glare Shield to keep the sunlight out of your eye, but without dimming everything else you're looking at, too.
There's Moshka, Gucci, and Oakley (tied to Tron:Legacy) already, now the newest pair of 3D glasses announced by an international fashion brand is Calvin Klien. November 4, Melville, NY, ck Calvin Klien Eyewear partners with Marchon3D to create a couple pairs of glasses with Marchon's patent-pending 3D lens technology - the only curved 3D lens on the market that is RealD certified.
Gunnar Optiks' computer glasses are not new, the things have been around for a few years now, we got our eyes on them last year to try them out and I have used the glasses before. Gunnar and gaming gear maker SteelSeries have teamed up to offering a SteelSeries specific set of the glasses just for PC gamers called Scope.
I am familiar with the Tag-Heuer brand as the maker of some really cool watches. I didn’t know the company also made glasses. The company is showing off an interesting set of glasses that are for nighttime driving.
I'm not so sure you would want to be seen wearing these glasses outside in public, but they are pretty cool. Vuzix has unveiled the WRAP 920AR augmented reality glasses at CES and the things have a pair of cameras mounted to the lens that project the real world onto the LCD inside the glasses.
