Subtitle Glasses for the Deaf

Viewing movies in the movie theater is a problem for many deaf people as theaters just don't offer that many subtitled screenings. Now however Sony is developing glasses that will provide subtitles to films within the glasses themselves.
Sony has been working on subtitle glasses that should allow deaf viewers to have their own personal subtitles without other viewers having to be distracted by them. While it seems like a pretty simple concept, the real trick is ensuring that the viewer doesn’t constantly have to switch focus from the glasses, to the screen, to the glasses, to the screen. These glasses manage to provide the subtitles in such a way that they appear to be projected on the screen, in the same field of view as the action of the movie.

Jessss: That's the problem. No big (Arclight Dome, El Capitan, Mann's Chinese, etc. in HollyWEIRD) and small movie (Regal, AMC, etc.) theaters do. :(

Awesome. More theatres should also install FM systems so that individuals with hearing aids can have the sound signal transmitted directly to their aids.
