The Media-Sensitive Glasses – Engadget

I can’t wait to see the first pair of these on someone in public… I’ll happily take their picture and shake their hand.

In The Hitchhikers’ Guide To The Galaxy series Zaphod Beeblebrox has a pair of glasses which automatically darken based on levels of impending danger. The idea being that if you’re about to die a horrible death the glasses will prevent you from seeing it and make the whole thing a lot easier to accept.

A similar principle can be found here. These glasses change opacity based on the proximity of a TV. Watch too much TV and they will darken, or they can be set to darken automatically when in the presence of a TV.

And yes, they can be calibrated for computer monitors too.
