Here’s a prototype made by Theo Watson from the fffffat labs (Free Art & Technology):

YouTube Glasses

We got a sneak peak of some new technology being developed at the labs over at You Tube. Apparently people who watch a lot of shows and movies online have been complaining that the quality of DVDs and HD TV shows is too fine and detailed for their internet eyes. In response You Tube developed these glasses which adds compression artifacts, noise and out of sync audio so as to make “non-web video” more palatable. We managed to obtain a comparison image bellow which shows the difference the You Tube Glasses makes to standard DVD content.


Our sources also tell us that the production version of the glasses will feature the classic You Tube watermark on the lower right hand side for added web video realism.
