Engineers in Japan unveiled a micro television screen that plays video from a user's eyeglasses while ensuring a normal visual field.

The Teleglass T3-F glasses, which promise to "turn commuting hell into a heavenly experience," were announced Monday by the Scalar Corporation.

The world's first electric and detachable micro-screen has been designed to attach to customers' glasses.

Tokyo is notorious for its long and uncomfortable commutes, but the small screen is meant to "make use of the time wasted during commuting," a Scalar representative said.

The device can also be attached to portable video players such as iPods, allowing users to select videos to watch while on the go.

The company said they are looking to expand use of the Teleglasses into other fields beyond recreation and entertainment.

Scalar recently entered into a joint venture with several university hospitals to employ Teleglass technology during medical procedures.

According to a Scalar spokesman, surgeons using Teleglass will be able to monitor the progress of the operation without having to take their eye off the patient to check the medical monitors -- thus minimizing the risk of mistakes during surgery.

The glasses are priced at $820 a pair.
