ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Dmitry Samal offers a range of pixelated sunglasses (top left), priced $150 or so. Triple Optic has a similar design (top right), which are almost as cool ... and just $10.
8-bit sunglasses should be 256 pixels wide.
I like that the article has the $150 glass for the WTF!? and then the ones for the price that is more like what you’d actually expect to pay for such a novelty. ($10).
Just bought a pair of $150 pixelated glasses?
Deal with it!
Hmm… I think the $10 ones looks much cooler than the expensive ones.
I guess neither of them make the world look pixelated, though.
Now THAT would be cool, that you see the world pixelated.
You do, but the resolution’s pretty awesome. The original retina display.
$150 for a pair of sunglasses with a very uncomfortable-looking nosepiece? That’s fashion, baby!
$150…those are custom made with my prescription right?
At least the $10 pair looks like they might be able to fit new lenses.
The more expensive ones have better lines, they also look to be of nicer construction. what is unclear is if the material has any UV protection, which supposedly the cheaper ones do. the major difference I belive is that the cheap ones are made in China, most likely by borderline slave laborers, whereas the expensive ones are “hand made” in France.
