I stopped by BlockBuster the other evening--part of my free trial period of BlockBuster's on-line service was a coupon for buy one pre-viewed DVD get one for five bucks. (Wouldn't you know it, I found three I ended up flinging down cash for?!?)
Anyway, while waiting for assistance ringing up my new prizes, I saw they had a display of these HoloSpec glasses
. The display had Christmas lights around it and said to try them out, so I did. Now, I have no idea how these things work, but they look like the 3-D glasses you'd put on at places like SeaWorld. But you put them on and look at the Christmas lights and you can see little things like a snowflakes, stars, Christmas trees, etc. in the lights. I have to admit this is a pretty cool technological advance.
Not so cool that I plunked down $1.99 plus tax for a set of them, mind you....
