Great eyesight is not something everyone is fortunate enough to possess. Heck, even people with great vision have difficulty reading some of the super fine print legal mumbo-jumbo stuff that you see on certain things. If you need to get a closer look at something, you might reach for a magnifying glass. But in this day and age, there’s always a better way to do everything. In this case, you can use a handy gadget to project that tiny text onto your big screen TV.

The Wireless Page To TV Magnifier does exactly what the name implies. You have a small device (which greatly resembles your average computer mouse) which views the text (or images) underneath and transmits it wirelessly to a base station. The base station is hooked to your TV where it is enlarged 25x. While it may come in handy when you’re reading through the finer points of your credit card statements (and that occasional issue of Playboy, which you read just for the articles) I doubt many people are going to justify the $150 cost.
