Polaroid's GL 20 Gaga Camera Glasses

Lifecasting devices are interesting--you wear them as they unobtrusively capture photos, video, sound (or all three) as you make sandwiches, walk the dog, or perform Bad Romance in Rome for 50,000 people. Although "unobtrusive" really isn't the idea behind Polaroid's GL20 Gaga-designed camera glasses, which take and display interval-shot photos taken with a lens on the bridge.

Gaga teamed up with Polaroid starting last year, and the world is finally seeing the fruits of this delightful instance of corporate synergy. A Gaga-designed portable Zink printer and an SX-70-inspired digital camera with built-in Zink printer and a flip up display for displaying the pictures should reach retail later this year as well.
