30 Extreme Eyewear Innovations

From Beyonce's Tassels to LEGO Mania Sunglasses

— May 28, 2009 — Unique
Summer is near and it’s time to protect our eyes with hip, unique shades. Personally I can’t leave home without them and it’s my favorite accessory regardless of the weather.

For a woman, it’s a good way to leave the house without makeup, while for men it’s a chick magnet fashion statement. Celebs from Kanye West to Beyonce are always sporting the coolest and most futuristic eyewear.

If you want to make a statement, try Delettrez’s funky glasses, but if you are a game fanatic there are super-smart Vuzix Wrap 920AV glasses. This cluster has it all, from handmade zipper shades to a pair for your favorite pooch.
