Unplug / Concept eyeglasses to block all things

Unplug

Unplug

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2019

The Unplug smart eyeglasses help users to ignore all the screens and advertising while stay connected to the things that are really important.
By activating the "do not disturb" mode on our phone the glasses start blocking all the screens using a future technology I imagine called "Active Bio-Polarizer" that use living cells to change from a normal eyeglasses to a screen blocker glasses. But also to reduce the insecurity of being disconnected the smart glasses allow communication only to the people and numbers we select as important this communication is only trough voice commands or normal calls using a bone conducted headphone.

I'm fascinated to receive this award since I'm really passionate about design and things like these impel me to continue working to fulfil my dreams. Thank you very much to everyone at If design. @felipeduarte_id
