A pair of sunglasses that can detect when someone is making eye contact with the wearer has been developed by Canadian researchers.


Besides being useful in singles bars, its inventors say the system could play a key role in video blogging, a hi-tech form of diary keeping.


Video bloggers record their lives from the point of view of a first person video narrative. "I think this is something that we will see over the next few years," says Roel Vertegaal, co-creator of the glasses at Queen's University's Human Media Lab, in Ontario, Canada.


The main problem is the tedious process of editing out the dull bits where nothing much happens, says Vertegaal. So the glasses allow a video blogger to automatically detect and record interactions and conversations with other people.
