18 Geordi La Forge-Worthy Glasses

From Single-Lens Sunglasses to Neomind Brainwave Visor

— May 29, 2014 — Tech
LeVar Burton might be making headlines for his impressive Kickstart campaign that raised one million dollars in one day to relaunch his beloved 'Reading Rainbow' show, but his biggest role is still associated with the Star Trek franchise; these Geordi La Forge-worthy glasses are in honor of that. He might have been a genius engineer in the hit television program, yet it is his iconic visor that people remember the most. Born blind, it gave him the power of sight again.

Although these Geordi La Forge-worthy glasses don't do that, they are hi-tech enough to provide people with other interesting capabilities. For instance, one gives people bat vision and another plays with virtual reality. Of course, some simply fall into the visor category.
