Wink Glasses to keep those eyeballs well lubricated

Japanese eyewear company Masunaga Optical recently unveiled a new solution for video gamers as well as bookworms (and basically anyone else who are involved in activities that reduce the amount of natural blinking) – the Wink Glasses that will help reduce incidences of dry eyes. Powered by a couple of Zinc-air batteries (PR41), the Wink Glasses will turn the glass opaque by filling its sheet with a transparent liquid crystal if it detects you have not blinked in the last five seconds. A blink will reverse the situation back to normal. Expect to fork out around $170 for the Wink Glasses, where the frame itself costs another $273.
