Man, I'm tired. I need to start going to bed earlier so I don't feel like I'm about to fall asleep at my keyboard in the morning. What I need are a pair of these Vision Optic MyDo Bururu (what?) glasses. No, not because my vision is poor โ€” 20/15, bitches โ€” but because these glasses are designed to shock you awake when you're nodding off.

They detect your level of wakefulness via the angle of your head, which seems to me like a pretty crappy way to judge whether or not someone is awake. What happens when you look down to wash your hands or make a sandwich? You get zapped by your glasses? No thanks, especially not for $370.
