Sony Unveils Glasses
We told you last year about a pair of glasses being developed by Sony for moviegoers that will 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. The size of the letters can be changed and the glasses can be worn on top of regular glasses. The technology will roll out in the UK first, and then come to the U.S. early next year. Eventually, Sony hopes to enable the device to create transcriptions of conversations. In this case, the deaf people would be able to read what someone is saying. Below is a video demonstration.
