Consumer Electronics Show: See it, shoot it, watch it all in the same glasses

January 6, 2011 | 11:30 pm

If you're into shooting video with your sunglasses, you probably want to fly under the radar. Interactive Group was showing off at the Consumer Electronics Show its Active-i sunglasses, which actually look like a close-to-normal pair of wrap-around sunglasses.

The shades have polarized, interchangeable lenses and can record audio and video, play it back on a small, detachable thin-film transistor LDC screen or by plugging directly into a television. (It's when you sport the detachable viewing screen that you might draw some undesired attention.)

The Active-i sunglasses cost $199 and are available now.
