Tonight I ordered Chinese for dinner. As usual they put a bunch of sauce packets in the bag, all of which feel the same. I was able to use my Envision glasses to identify what they were - which ones were soy sauce and which ones were Duck Sauce. Thanks Envision.

Took my @LetsEnvision glasses on a trip to the mall today for the first time. Two impressions:
1. Man the visual senses are overloaded with so much advertising
2. I loved every ad, because I had no idea that there were so many until today.
