Garrett Mace was rocking a pair of LED matrix glasses at Maker Faire:

The shades are a 20×6 matrix (with some pixels 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.

    Here is a better (maybe, at least more fun) video showing more patterns on the glasses: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6Arv2bez00

    It was a blast wearing these around the Faire, hundreds of people must have tried them on and taken photos. Most common under-the-breath comment from passers-by: “That’s just wrong. I want it.”

  2. I foresee lady gaga getting an upgrade :-)
