I just found this crazy article on Engadget about the Carl Zeiss Cinemizer glasses.  Have you seen these things?

(This image opens up HUGE if you want detail…)

So these are OLED, HD glasses with some pretty interesting specs.  They’re only pre-ordering now, but they’re pre-ordering for 649 Euro.  That’s about 851.55 USD.  I’m guessing that they’re gonna be about 850 bucks cool.

A video demo of the Zeiss Cinemizers:

From the pre-order site – for $850+ you get:

Cinemizer OLED with battery
Cinemizer HDMI adapter – 720p / 1080p (2D / 3D)

I always get such a kick out of product marketing imagery.  For example, I like to call this next one “Hey sweetheart, we’re gonna yank out several of your teeth now, here’s some Cinemizers to help you ignore the fact that you have a dentist standing on your shoulders trying to yank your toofs out!”

Very cool.

Thanks for the original article, Engadget!
