I get horrible motion sickness sometimes, so I'd LOVE to believe that these glasses actually do what they claim.
The engineers at Citroën have apparently thrown almost 100 years of French design refinement out the window with a new product you don’t drive, but will improve your motoring experience. The carmaker’s new Seetroën glasses won’t win you any style points, but Citroën claims the glasses will eliminate any motion sickness you’re feeling after wearing them for just 10 minutes.
...So how are these goofy glasses supposed to alleviate the problem? The frames feature something called Boarding Ring technology, developed by a company of the same name, which is marketing-talk for ‘they’re filled with liquids that are free to slosh around’. The Seetroën glasses have four liquid-filled rings that, thanks to gravity, simulate the angle and movements of the horizon so that the motions of the blue-dyed liquids seen by the wearer’s eyes match what their inner ear is detecting.
The best part? After about 10-12 minutes you DON'T have to wear them anymore. You'll have adjusted to the motion and can go about your day looking less nerdy.
A pair will sell for about $115 when they come available.

This original, 300-year-old pair of nerd eyeglasses were destined for a Wellington, New Zealand landfill. Fortunately, the operators of a Wellington City Council thrift shop pulled the frames, an ancestor of Le corbusier’s classic specs, from the trash and listed them for auction. The frames, a style called Martin’s Margins designed in 1756 by Benjamin […]
Rose-colored glasses are out. Sunglasses filtered with a color palette reminiscent of a Wes Anderson movie are in, at least according to “filter sunglasses brand” Tens. Spectachrome is a new and limited edition lens filter inspired by the distinct colour palettes of Wes Anderson films such as “Moonrise Kingdom”, “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Hotel Chevalier”… […]
The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth. The other hogs the […]
Add Internet of Things to the shortlist of those actually benefiting from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. You might not realize it, but the organizing principle that is bringing more automation to the world is actually proving to be a major asset as human beings are forced to stay home and away from the […]
We’ve all had those nights where we’re working on a laptop or scrolling through our phone before glancing at the time to find it’s actually a lot later than we thought. Most nights, you’d be fast asleep or at least dead tired at midnight or 1 or 3 a.m. But after staring at a screen, […]
