Smart glasses news - Quite the spectacles - 2008

Read more on:

Want
a new Smart ForTwo but can’t afford the down payments? Well, why not fool your
brain into thinking you’ve bought the dinky city car with this pair of Smart
 glasses? 

We
haven’t made this up. Honest. Look at the picture. These specs have been made
by Smart in Germany as part of the marketing campaign for the ForTwo, and are
printed with an interior view of the dash and cabin. 

Not
only will you be able to experience the joy of the ForTwo’s luxurious cabin,
but with your new chic-chic glasses, you’ll be the envy of your friends.

OK,
we can mock (and we will), but if you think about it, the idea makes a lot of
sense. Wear your glasses and you’ll be able to squeeze into even the narrowest
of city parking spaces (depending on your previous week’s pie intake, at least)
and weave through traffic with all the manoeuvrability of, well, a person
wearing glasses.

Yes,
you’ll look like a fool, but we reckon you’ll get less abuse in the Smart
glasses than you would in that Hamann Cayenne.
