For Your Eyes Only: James Bond meets Star Trek

You can fill an entire conference these days with wearable electronics and other stuff that makes you look like one of the bad guys in Star Trek.

But this one I couldn't resist posting: video glasses that generate the sensation of a 42" LCD screen right in front of your eyes.

Why is posting this so irresistible? Not sure. Maybe it's the ridiculous idea that some people will shell out more than 500 bucks for a gadget that's outright dangerous to wear. Or maybe it's because the thing makes you look like one of those criminal suspects whose eyes have been covered in a newspaper photograph.

Or else it's the press photo, another splendid proof that Bling is King and the iPod is the ultimate Bling.
