They also give the wearer a most-striking resemblance to Octavius. Exhibit A: Image: MIT Elliot gives his take on the tech in the newest episode of Mashable Minute. Earlier this week, we talked about lasers and Taco Bell, so — there’s that, too. Have something to add to this story? Share it in the comments….
