Macetech has developed an interesting set of LED glasses that look like something people in 1983 would expect people of 2012 to be wearing. Although the glasses have been featured in a Lytro gallery, a recent Reddit post seems to provide the only details:
The shades are a 20×6 matrix (with some pixel missing of course) driven by SPI from an integrated Arduino-compatible in the right temple. There is a Lithium-Polymer battery on the left temple. You can charge the glasses through USB, and download new code to it over the same connection. A button on the right temple allows switching between modes or auto cycling animated patterns.
Currently, there’s no word on whether the specs will eventually be sold at all, let alone as a finished product or kit.
