These High-Tech Specs Adjust Depending on the Wearer's Movement

Google was recently awarded a patent that allows the company to produce self-adjusting running glasses. For those who are near-sighted, running with glasses can be a frustrating activity. These self-adjusting specs could change the lives of bespectacled consumers.

Google's new patent allows the company to produce a pair of running glasses that adjust themselves based on the wearer's movement. The glasses rely on input, adjustment calculations and an output system to facilitate movement. Although Google has not revealed how the eyewear would be powered, the company has used a 2.1 watt-hour battery on some of its past devices.

While the self-adjusting glasses may not hit the market for some time, the high-tech specs could eliminate a major problem for near-sighted athletes.
