Anti-Sleep Glasses

This sounds like some kind of new self-torture device from Japan. Available at Japan Trend Shop.

Masunaga Wink Glasses
These clever specs can detect when you haven't blinked in five seconds and fog up one of the lens. This simple function will then "jolt" the eyes and make them focus, thus waking you up before you drop off fully. Men blink once every three seconds; women once every four seconds. So any longer than this and you are slowing down, which generally means you are getting sleepy.

Man loses eye in court

This case has sparked my curiosity, so I'm going to keep an eye out to see what happens during the rescheduled trial. [nj.com]
