Hey, we could all save time and look at the sun with two magnifying glasses!

I love that first comment. A brighter image with less light! No wonder my eyes water when I put on my peril-sensitive sunglasses.

I think these things have to set some kind of new record for "concept design" bulldust.

How, exactly, a sunglass-thick layer of material is supposed to work as a general-purpose image enhancer, the "designer" has not even started to consider.

This is a very very difficult problem in physics. I mean, do these glasses locate your eyes and only "enhance" the photons that are headed that way, or is there a magic camera on the front of the lens and a magic depth-compensating screen on the back, or...? It's hard to even know where to start.

Hey, I've got one - how about an umbrella that turns rain into turkey sandwiches? Wouldn't that be awesome?

Blublocker sunglasses work to some degree by blocking the color blue (mostly) so you don't get eyestrain after a long day outdoors. The image they produce
is quite a bit brighter.
