Instagram camera glasses concept swaps lenses for artsy filters

With over 50 million users (Android and iOS combined), there seems to be nothing that can stop Instagram from photo domination. If the Socialmatic camera didn't make you drool for a physical Instagram camera, perhaps these sunglasses with built in real-time Instagram filters will.

Designed by Markus Gerkes, Instaglasses takes Instagramming to the next level. On the right side of the glasses are buttons for switching filters that let you see the world through filtered lenses. Then, when you like an adjustment, you simply take it a photo on the spot with the built-in 5-megapixel camera.

It's similar to what Google's doing with its Project Glass augmented reality glasses.

The Instaglasses feature Wi-Fi and 3G, 2GB of onboard storage (not sure why you would need this since Instagram photos are stored in the cloud) and a seven hour battery life.

Alas, it's just a concept design. Sigh. What a tease.
