Spanish researchers had created a prototype pair of computerized glasses. The glasses look like a large pair of sunglasses with cameras on each lens. The glasses work by analyzing the environment around the user and then highlighting objects that may be obstacles. The highlighting helps the user easily identify obstacles. The users need some vision in order to see the highlights so this is not intended for the blind. The glasses are currently in the prototype stage of development and is not available to consumers. Stay tuned for more information about pricing and availability.
