Gunnar Optiks have announced official eyewear, made with Activision’s blessing, to launch with Modern Warfare 3.
With a nifty design, the glasses are built with an aluminum body with adjustable nose pads and wide coverage lenses, whilst the MW3 logo is engraved on the side.
Gunnar’s range of eyewear claims to filter out artificial light, helping to reduce eye irritation and fatigue after extended periods of gaming. The glasses can supposedly improve contrast, particularly when using modern high-quality televisions or monitors, giving gamers with the glasses a possible edge over competitors.
According to Gunnar Optics the glasses help with:
• Higher contrast resulting in better visual accuracy and efficiency.
• Increase detail to produce clearer and sharper visuals.
• Assist with reducing glare from your monitor while helping to improve focus.
• Improves visual endurance when for those gaming marathons.
• Reduces eye fatigue thus less eye dryness
The product will be sold exclusively in North America at Best Buy (at $99.99) and at select European retailers following MW3′s release. Whilst the glasses may make you an elite CoD player, don’t expect your local Specsavers to stock them anytime soon.
