(Newser) – Maybe Sarah Palin—world-class winker that she is—inspired them: The maker of her stylish glasses has a new product for gamers too busy to blink. (Really.) Masunaga Optical's Wink Glasses have a sensor to keep track of blinks, and if they don't come quickly enough, the lenses fog up. Blink again, and the lenses clear. The idea is to prevent dry eyes when staring too long at a computer, or maybe even a book, notes All yours for $443.
