Leave it to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] to bring a dead technology back to life. A few months ago when Gaga announced her partnership with Polaroid I was scratching my head. No one uses Polaroid cameras anymore. We all have cell phones that take pictures and we can share them with the world instantly thanks to social netoworking.
But Lady Gaga is definitely going to revive the Polaroid brand with the sunglasses they created and debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas yesterday.
So what makes these sunglasses so amazing besides the fact that Gaga designed them? Besides protecting your eyes from the sun, these sunglasses take pictures and video. OMG!
Those are the glasses! The new new product range known as “Grey Label by Haus of Gaga.”
Polaroid released the new range of products, the GL10 Instant Mobile Printer, GL30 Instant Digital Camera and the GL20 Camera Glasses on Thursday.
“This is the first ever pair of sunglasses that can be worn out to protect your eyes from the sun and they can also take pictures,” Lady Gaga said, referring to the GL20 Camera Sunglasses.
The fashionable sunglasses can shoot pictures as well as capture video. A memory stick in one of the earpieces acts as a storage medium. The images or video can be retrieved using a USB to a printer, or the images can be transferred using Bluetooth.
As for pricing and release date, well… they are still unknown. I will definitely keep you posted. This is just further proof that Lady Gaga’s genius goes far beyond just music!
