Sensor-Equipped Sunglasses Block Glare by Blacking Out Parts of Lenses

When it comes to deflecting the sun’s blinding rays, even fancy polarized sunglasses don’t always cut the glare completely. A new LCD technology developed by physicist Chris Mullin , however, could result in “smart” eyewear that detects bright spots of light and darkens them accordingly. Together with Albert Titus, an electrical engineer at the University at Buffalo , Mullin developed “Dynamic Eyes,” a working prototype that could shield sensitive eyes and make it easier for drivers to monitor oncoming traffic. Although it won’t be hitting the consumer market anytime soon, Mullin’s invention appears promising. Besides a spot on Popular Science’s list of the year’s top 10 inventions, the project has also attracted the interest of the U.S. Air Force , along with the automotive, recreational, and healthcare industries.
