Hey, who is that cool-looking mothertrucker over there in the blue-framed glasses? Oh, that's me in a mirror, wearing Gunnar's new Intercept Color Collection gaming eyewear. 

I went eyes-on at with these at CES this week, slipping them on my face after a hideously long day of staring at my computer, mobile devices, and countless demos on the show floor. It was about 11:00 p.m. when I tried them on, so my eyes were as dry as the desert. But relief came soon with their glare-busting glass. I noticed that they instantly tamed the fluorescent show floor lights.

I took a pair back with me to my hotel room and wore them while I worked well into the next morning. My eyeballs were happy that I did as they seemed to provide relief from eye strain. Is it a psychological effect kind of thing? Or is it the glass? I don't know. But they do something.

The retro/hipster look is a bonus. The new colors (red, blue, purple, white, and green) are a lot of fun with their almost transparent look, but they're also quality frames that seem like they'd hold up. I'm pretty happy with the way the blue ones look, though I was also drawn to the purple pair.

When I return from CES I'll put the Intercept to good use while gaming and putting on my dogs' faces. I'll try them out and see if they're worth your $70. For now I'll just keep trying to look cool.

Here are some fancy product shots of the white PS4 and PS Vita TV

I went to snap images of the new PS4, PS TV, and all of the new controllers and accessories, but the floors was crowded and dark (and stinky), and the goods were behind an ultra-reflective glass case.  Frustrated, I came...more
