Inventor: Motorola and Frog Design
The fashion and high-tech industries rarely see eye to eye. But if the future of technology is in wearable computers, as some believe, then the Offspring Wearable prototypes are a step in the right direction. These sunglasses don't just look coolthey also house a tiny digital camera lens (which peeks out from a pinhole opening above the right lens) as well as a miniature display inside the left lens for reading e-mail or looking up information online. An earpiece for your cell phone pops out from the side of the glasses. It's all part of a wearable wireless system that includes a two-way-radio watch, a PDA and other add-ons.
Availability: In 2006
