Hi-tech eyewear innovations provide unprecedented viewing experiences

Implications - Earlier this year, Trend Hunter uncovered 'Hands-Free Tech,' innovative eyewear giving consumers extra functionality, whether it's connecting to social media or taking photos. Now, we're seeing even more hi-tech eyewear that provide display and projection features to create a completely enhanced and unprecedented viewing experience. These include everything from virtual reality contact lenses to bluetooth-enabled specs that can display images from your phone or tablet, all of which stand to transform the way today's media is delivered and digested.
