Specs With Tech – Finally One Which Has An Actual Use

There have been several attempts at combining some technology with glasses in order to come up with some sort of a gadget. Most of these attempts have resulted in crap-gadgets.  Notable among those would be Gucci’s 3D Glasses and the more recent Google Glasses (the idiotic thing is pictured above).

Not only do the Google Glasses look pathetic, I can't think of a single sensible use that they could be put to (your definition of 'sensible' could be different from mine, but do think about it for a while before you tell me that Google Glasses are actually useful).


Finally someone seems to have had enough of the nonsense and managed to come up with a pair of glasses, laced with tech – with potential for some actual use. The O2Amps from 2AI Labs.

And there are applications in medicine, which is where we believe we can make the greatest impact. In fact, for medicine we have developed three different technologies, and they can be described as…

(i) a vein-finder, or oxygenation-isolator, that amplifies perception of oxygenation modulations under the skin (and eliminates perception of variations in the concentration of haemoglobin),
(ii) a trauma-detector, or haemoglobin-concentration-isolator, that amplifies perception of haemoglobin concentrations under the skin (and eliminates perception of variations in oxygenation), and
(iii) a general clinical enhancer, or oxygenation-amplifier, that combines the best features of the first two; it eliminates neither signal (i.e., it retains perception of both variation in Haemoglobin oxygenation and concentration), and only amplifies perception of oxygenation.

We’ve received great interest from medical professionals interested in trying out the O2Amp, and we’re moving now to get them in hospitals and among clinical staff everywhere.
