A video lens for the Borg in you

'Teleglass' about to go on market in Japan


Not long ago, the idea of a video lens built into a pair of eyeglasses was little more than science fiction. Now, a Japanese company wants to make it a reality and even relatively affordable.

The "Teleglass" from Arisawa Manufacturing is a quarter-inch LCD that yields an image that's the equivalent of a 21-inch screen from about a yard away, according to I4U News. That's about half the size and distance of products such as RelaxView's glasses, but the Teleglass allows you to maintain your regular field of vision at the same time. (We must insist, however, that you not use it to watch a movie while driving.)

The Teleglass, which is scheduled to go on sale in Japan next year for $429, is also less expensive than competing products. But there's one thing to keep in mind: If you wear one of these, you'll look a lot more like a Borg than Lt. Geordi La Forge.
