These new shades from Nike are still in the prototype stage, but once they have named it (Hindsight) and released pictures and info, they can’t be far off. They use fresnel lenses around the sides to create a distortion like no-line bifocals, but these gives the wearer around 25º of additional periferal vision on each side. They are intended for cyclists, but I think they have plenty of uses. Sports come to mind. A baseball pitcher wouldn’t even have to look around for base stealers.

Well it looks like I was wrong. As of the last time I checked, this product still hadn’t materialized.
