No Woody Allen glasses for you!
In the ultra-orthodox world, men are meant to stay away from female immodesty, and reserve their focus and attention solely to their wives. According to AP, a new start-up company appears to have taken this concept one step further by marketing unique glasses that actually blur vision, therefore allowing Haredi men to walk around freely and not feel exposed to women baring skin. Seeing as the ultra-orthodox community is a part of the general Israeli population, we asked the public in Tel Aviv what they thought of this new gimmick. So while many people aspire to have x-ray vision, some men appear to be seeking the opposite. The glasses will reportedly cost a few dollars a pair and will only obscure vision from a few meters away. Sivan Raviv, JN1, Israel.
Saudi Arabia has informed Israel that it would intercept any Air Force aircraft crossing its airspace to Iran. In the two months leading to the terror attack in Bulgaria, Israel’s intelligence services intercepted many phone calls between Burgas and Lebanon. Canadian-based “Circus of the Sun” is set to wow an Israeli audience on Wednesday as the show opens in Israel for the first time at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv.

It’s not a joke, although it certainly seems like one.
With software created by Israeli start-up 3D TV, you can watch Avatar in 3D format — and lose the glasses. By Harvey Stein (Israel MFA) Part of the reawakened 3D revolution, spurred on by the box office hit film Avatar, is taking place in Israel. Israel start-up 3DTV, located in Ra’anana north of Tel Aviv, is developing a new 3D technology. You won’t need to wear those funny glasses anymore. Owner and CEO David Ohayon explains that every scene has to be shot with two cameras, one from the perspective of each eye. 3D TV adds a layer of optics on top of the existing layer on a commercial LCD TV. This layering redirects the pixels in nine different directions. Content for 3D has to be created in a special way, and the start-up creates its own high quality content, in addition to providing the software to convert any existing video into 3D content. For now, 3D TV is showing its content at exhibitions, business centers and airports. Several commercials made by the company are on display at the Moscow Airport and the software is currently on display at the Israel Pavilion at China’s Shanghai Expo.
