Of all the wearable gear at CES, Epiphany Eyewear's HD video glasses were definitely among the coolest-looking.
In fact, at first glance, these shades look more like a classic pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers than they do high-tech gear. That's because designer David Meisenholder (pictured) set his sights on creating a high-performance wearable device that didn't compromise style.
But don't be fooled by their look; Epiphany glasses come with a built-in mobile computer and full HD digital video camera that can be turned on and off with the simple push of a button on their frame. When done filming, users can transfer their video and audio content to a laptop or other device via a discrete micro-USB plug, hidden on the bottom of the right side of the glasses' temple. Epiphany shades also have a smart lens technology that lets users control the darkness of their lenses.
They come in 8-GB, 16-GB and 32-GB models, which go for $299, $399 and $499, respectively, on epiphanyeyewear.com.
