Default How about Olympus EVF that fits in your eye?

Olympus has patented a monocle eyeglass that you wear, and at the flip of a swtich, the monocle projects the image from the camera's LCD into your eye. Interesting.

When a shutter was closed, it use the LCDWhen a shutter opened; noncorrectional glassesA contact perception sensor is equipped with by a camera. The picture which imitated a finger begins to be projected on the button if I touch it.

Bob, you can train yourself to ignore one eye. Telescope users do that all the time (although it is easier to learn to do in the dark than in daylight).

Steven, this is really interesting. I hope the bozos in charge of Olympus haven't ruined the company - they clearly have innovative employees.
