Adaptive Glasses / Eyeglasses

Corrective glasses and sunglasses are separate designs, which causes much trouble to those who wear corrective glasses. They either choose not to wear sunglasses, or have to take two pairs of glasses when there is a big sun. To tackle this problem, we designed this smart Adaptive Glasses. With a piece of thin liquid crystal inserted into the each lens, this design can maintain the function of vision correction while automatically adjust the transparency of lenses in real time according to the ambient light simultaneously. This compact design will make daily life more convenient for people who wear corrective lenses.
