Ok, so it's quite apparent what this idea is,, I will try to expain:
Imagine glasses that use some technology to make portions of the
glasses darker, on the fly. You would be able to darken out most of
the field of view, while allowing what you are actually looking at to
be un-darkened. A
camera follows your pupils, which lets your
glasses know where what direction your eyeballs are looking. The
sunglasses then darken all portions of the sunglasses except for
where your eyes are focused.
Extra feature: it would have a camera facing out, to block extra
heavy light. Say you are trying to look into the sun. It will detect
the direction of the sun, and, calculating the position with reference
to your eyeballs, will make a portion of the eyeglasses extra dark.
allowing everything to be brighter because your pupils don't have to
contract as much.
This idea would look exactly like a cartoon. A spot follows your eye
direction, it would look like large eyeballs on sunglasses. This way,
you can't stare at the girls without them knowing.
woot! feels good! [twitch, Nov 28 2010]
Kickstarter project for sun-following sunglasses
I like the invention, but I'm betting this particular project won't make it--it would need a lot of design and marketing help. [jutta, Nov 29 2010]
||I had to bone myself, for bad spelling, grammar and
punctuation. Better luck next time.
||Ok. So nix to the\my up-skirt voyeurism.
|| How 'bout the cam ( when I'm not looking into
the sun ) ? Can it grab some person on the street
footage ( for the foot fetish ) ? Or snap a few
quick pics of Hot Babes?
||Haha, idea validated. see link!
||The glasses almost need the crystal structure to dynamically change spacial orientation with the direction of the eye so the light rays can only enter on a line with the line of sight. Link only blotches section of vision.
||Liquid lenses, electro - static/magnetic manipulation of crystaline structure in liquid medium. Sounds pretty futuristic. The eye following is done and dusted though.
