VU Meter for Sunglasses

A novel visual effect, for people who are purely too cool.

An OLED overlay on the outside lens surface of sunglasses that simulates the retro technical cool of a pair of VU meters. It'd be linked by bluetooth to whatever your mp3 player is playing. The needles dance about to the music, in the way that they should, and if badly equalised 'dance' music occurs, there'll be a lot of +3dB fsd pinning.

       um - is it visible to you only? unfocussed. Visible to others only? That nut wearing meters for glasses!

       Or use conventional needle type meters, with clear glass.

       I'm with [Ling) - either real VU needles or else a spectrum analyser with oleds. Massive bun for concept though. (I am after all, too cool.)

       The windscreen wiper version might be implementable as a firmware upgrade to your car's CPU...   

       (Doncher love random browse?)   

       (Oh, okay, you don't.)

       Although a possible downside would be that, if it was raining, the only way to get your windscreen properly wiped would be to play deafeningly loud techno.

       And if it wasn't raining, you'd have to keep your music off or you'd ruin your wipers.   

       Such is the price of progress.

       I thought you said UV meter, that would be a better idea, a UV meter on the sunglesses with a display on the inside of one of the lenses so you would know how much uv radiation you are absorbing

       That's a good idea in its own right, [ModernDiva] - you should post it.   

       <later>   

       There is some prior art, however .... <link>
