Pricey Retro Glasses Cost More Than Extra Life

You’ll need to find more than 100 coins to buy and wear these pixelated shades, designed by Dzmitry Samal (above). Each pair costs 198 Euro, or around $280. According to the online product description, the design is meant to “deliberately [reflect] society’s fascination with an ‘informational aesthetic’.”

While computer images and graphics have been revolutionized over the past two decades, these glasses are reminiscent of society’s digital roots and how technology has inspired almost everything in use today. Even something as utilitarian as glasses can be transformed using technology.

Craving that 1985-look but lacking the cash? Go here and tie on some affordable gamer cred for less than an Andrew Jackson.
