Personal subtitle glasses from Sony may get trial run in UK next year


It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard any news about those spiffy specs that put private subtitles in your field of view. It looks like they’re finally inching closer to reality though, with some help from Sony’s UK arm. The BBC recently took hard-of-hearing Brit Charlie Swinbourne to the theater and let him give the glasses a go. Rather than displaying subtitles on screen the eye-wear projects text on the lenses where only that particular user can see them. Going to see a French film in an American cinema, but your first language is Spanish? One day you could pick your language, in addition to keeping the captions out of other movie goers way. Sony hopes to trial the glasses in UK theaters next year. Check out the source link for the full report.
