Sony Working on Subtitle Glasses
Sony UK is developing a pair of glasses that display subtitles right along with a film. Through the glasses, the subtitles look like they are on the actual movie screen. But only the wearer of the glasses sees them. Plus, the words appear to be the same distance from the wearer as the film itself. The new glasses could show up in UK theaters as soon as next year. Sony is also looking at other applications for the glasses. Such as creating transcriptions of conversations. In this case, the deaf people would be able to read what someone is saying. There's a video report about it from the BBC here.
