Don’t be shy that when you use Bluetooth-enabled sunglasses and eyewear devices, it represents that you are officially living in the science fiction era.
You many think that most of the functions of Bluetooth sunglasses involve feature that have nothing to do with protecting your eyes from the sun. In fact, they have built-in digital capabilities which take advantage of the fact that eyewear touches both your eyes and ears.
It is amazing that one such device is the built-in MP3 player and speakers. Now the glasses are a headset of sorts, with USB storage onboard and speakers built right into the parts by the ear. Now you have musical sunglasses. You can upload your playlist and MP3 from your computer to your sunglasses. Some of them store up to a gigabyte of music, and can talk to any other Bluetooth-enabled device.
For the built-in phone capability, it makes sense to combine a headset phone and sunglasses. You can build the headset bit into your sunglasses bit, and then you can walk around talking hands-free without looking like the Borg got you.
The capabilities involving the video instead of the audio also make so-called “spy” sunglasses with hidden camera and video recorder, so you can record a your-eye view of whatever you’re looking at. This helps if you’re on the away team and need the science officer on deck to analyze the alien you’re looking at.
Furthermore, each of the above capabilities can be built into the same unit. And with head-up displays and video-aided visual displays, common in industrial use, you could have an image projected onto the glasses as well. So now are you pound of this amazing device?
