Does anyone have high hopes for these USB sunglasses?
Has everyone been seeing for the last several weeks all the stories coming out about Calvin Klein's new USB sunglasses?

Anyone think they'll catch on?

Brando is apparently making them too now.http://techgage.com/print/brando_usb...ses_mp3_player

Er.... just my personal opinion, but I don't see why they would. The Brando version, personally I think has no aesthetic value, the drive isn't even hidden. The CK ones look like any other sunglasses with wide temples, but I don't see the need for the flash drive. Personally I've never found myself at a loss for where to put a flash drive. Or all panicky and then thought "oh, if only my sunglasses had a USB flash drive concealed in them I'd have everything I need." So I don't see a reason why they would catch one, but you never know...

i think maybe eyeglasses or a watch is better since you use them all the time, but sunglasses not really.. you'd have to always remember to carry them, like on a rainy day. i've never lost my USB disks (i have a few.. ) but i am always scared of losing them haha



moving this thread to More Accessories forum.

I'm doubting this one will last. I'm just trying to think of a time when I would possibly need to be wearing sunglasses and transferring files from a USB at the same time. USBs are small enough that it's not like they're a pain to carry around. I think it's kind of gimmicky, but who knows?

They're mens sunglasses anyway - not that women can't wear them, but basically it's not aimed at us women so maybe it could be an interesting gimmicky gadget things you buy for a guy this Christmas?

I wouldn't want one any time soon. Give me a Swarovski crystal USB if you were to give me something fancy...
