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.

Olympus Patents a Monocle Viewfinder

When a shutter was closed, it use the LCD a shutter opened; noncorrectional glasses 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.

......wondering, would one squint the other eye when in the monocle projection mode

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.
