Created electronic sunglasses that switch to reading glasses in one swipe

Published

on

Fundraising for 32 ° N goggles is nearing completion on KickStarter. The developers describe their creation as “sunglasses that switch into reading glasses with one slide.”

The secret of the glasses is in the presence of an active area, which changes the optical power under the action of the applied voltage. Control is performed by sliding movement of the sensor in the bow. The range of change is up to +2 diopters. In the mobile application, you can configure a specific value that the lenses will take when they are turned on. To turn off the magnification, just swipe the bow in the opposite direction.

The minimum contribution required to qualify for points is $ 229. More than $ 276,000 has been raised so far, more than 10 times the original target. The authors of the project promise to start shipping glasses in April next year. The glasses are planned to retail for $ 449.
