Sunnycam Xtreme 1080p HD Video Glasses – Review

You have to be a little careful when describing this particular product. They are a pair of sunglasses with a hidden camera at the front. It sounds a little dodgy if you put it that way. The camera is noticeable, however many won’t spotted on a day-to-day basis. …

Even these would make Clark Kent look cool – Vue Smart Glasses

Hurrah! Not a Cyber Monday / Black Friday / Super Sale post! Instead, a Kickstarter project which I recently stumbled across. Real smart glasses! Not weird looking Google Glass ones, but practical glasses with built-in benefits. The glasses case is even a wireless charging unit! These glasses can …

Snap Spectacles coming soon – Record your life and share it.

Remember the Hyundai sunglasses we reviewed? They had a tiny hidden camera in the front and were designed to record your biking adventures. You could also perhaps wear them around town and record “things” if you wanted. It all seems fine until someone on the bus says, “Hey, …

Make your own Google Cardboard glasses. From food.

Yeah. It’s a weird idea, but someone in the US decided to make some virtual reality glasses with crackers. Not just any crackers, but Graham Crackers. They’re a bit hard to get hold of here in the UK, which is particularly annoying as my wife finds them to …

MINI Produce glasses that give you X-ray vision

Hey, wanna know something? If you’ve ever been in the passenger seat of a car when it’s raining heavily on the motorway, try holding your phone up and take a picture. You’ll probably find that the preview screen affords you a better view of the road than your …

Fancy some slightly cheaper smart glasses?

I do get some very odd emails here at Coolsmartphone, and daily you’ll find an email from some random Chinese manufacturer sitting in my inbox. Usually these are to sell Bluetooth speakers, keyboards or GPS trackers. For some reason they think I’m a buyer for a UK store, …

Gunnar Optics Glasses review

I know what you are thinking. I have clearly lost my marbles. Maybe you’re right, but not with regard to this review. The reason I found these interesting is that I work in front of a computer screen all day, and I regularly end up with pretty sore …

Gunnar Optics glasses unboxing

Time for something different. I have to wear glasses for work as I spend the vast majority of my day in front of a computer screen. Now, while the screens have got better than they once used to be, it can be very tiring on your eyes. Not …

Google Glass lands in the UK

Google Glass has been available in America for a little while now to developers as long as you are happy to spend $1500 on the Explorer option. Now Google have announced that customers in the UK are able to get them too. It’s available for the small (well …

Google Glass now available to everyone ( in the USA )

Starting today, Google Glass is available for practically anybody in the USA, as long as they are over 18 and have $1500 to spend. The Explorer version of the Google Glass wearable was sold only to developers who intended to write apps for the device, this was changed to a invite …

Was I too quick? Is virtual reality actually the next big thing?

Just yesterday I asked whether mobile phones had stopped evolving. With an endless tirade of slab-style phones I really couldn’t see what could happen next. Where could phones go from here? Well, a lot of you are interested in wearable tech. A watch that you can speak into …

Portable 3D screen on the cheap – vrAse

Right. That’s it. I’ve pretty much had it with these Kickstarter projects. Is it me or is each one getting slightly more bizarre and dangerously close to “quack, quack, look I’m a duck” crazy? That’s the first thing I thought when I saw the promotional images below for …

Video glasses competition – the winner is..

It’s going to be a huge week here at Coolsmartphone. We’ve got a number of competitions for you to enter but first we need to tidy up some unfinished business. We had over a hundred entries into our video sunglasses competition. The prize is a pair of cool-looing …

GlassUp – PayPal withholding start-up funds (Update)

Sometimes, just sometimes, PayPal decide to do something a little strange. Sometimes it seems that they’re gone to the Google School of Customer Service, where either no emails are responded to or rules are suddenly enforced that no-one was really aware of. Sadly this story involves those GlassUp …

Hyundai HD Daylight sunglasses review

Sunglasses … with a frickin’ hidden camera. Honestly, it’s like something out of Austin Powers. I don’t know where to start. Back in 2002 I was happy to review a phone that had a colour screen. Now I’ve got a pair of sunglasses which look and feel like …

GlassUp glasses. It’s not just Google any more

Google Glass, yes we have to mention them in this article. It’s basically a pair of glasses you stick on your face and, visa a magical miniature screen, you get helpful bits of information fed into your vision as you go about your daily life. But wait, there’s …

Smartphone Glasses – See quicker

This took me a good few seconds to “get” but it’s a pretty nifty idea which is cheap too. For those that have trouble viewing the screen and require reading glasses, things can become a bit of a faff when you want to use your smartphone. First you’ve …
