    They’re designed/invented by Artie, and they’re actually used in the story I’m drawing where Trey goes undercover as a university student and Elizabeth is her handler. Version 2.0 can record and provide heads-up disply in 3-D as well.

    Cool cool. Would they be probably a little sleeker in the shape, perhaps? I like the inclusion of the gadgetry, nicely incorporated, but perhaps round out some of the edges so that they don’t look as boxlike? Or perhaps it could actually work as a hearkening back to the retro 3-D shades of yesteryear. I could see him being silly but functional in that sense.

    Yeah, I was kind of going for retro or geek-chic with them, and with something that would be gender-neutral in the frame style.

    I wonder about the idea of making them sleeker. Would Artie want them to be cooler or would he want them to appear as geeky as possible to fool people?

    One fun thing about Artie that seems to be coming up is nothing should be taken at face value with him. If they look a certain way it’s because he wants you to see them a certain way.

      I tend to think as geeky as possible because (1) the person using them will be touching them a lot, what with the controls in the frames, and if the glasses are geeky-looking this would seem like normal geeky behaviour; and (2) he knows the demographic this would ultimately appeal to when he puts them in the market.

    Oh yeah, we also gotta call them something else. “Brainy Specs” is property of the Tenth Doctor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenth_Doctor

    How about Eye-Spy as the name for these?
