The German company Rodenstock has developed what I've always wanted: sunglasses that show you some of your vital signs. But the sunglasses don't yet report your bionic legs moving you at 60 miles an hour.
Sunglasses that can show athletes' performance and heart rate data in their peripheral vision have been developed by a German company.
The sunglasses – dubbed "Informance" – display a stopwatch and heart rate at one edge. The extra components needed to do this add just 7 grams to the glasses' overall weight – which is much less than previous head-up displays.
This is just the start of a trend toward far greater data collection and display power in glasses. Imagine embedded sensors that would report blood chemistry vitals to the glasses by very low power radio signals. Watches will also collect information about blood chemistry and will have sensors that measure chemicals in your sweat.
