We’ve all done it. Whether it’s leaving them on various modes of transport or an obscure relatives or friends, we’ve all left our glasses, or sunglasses somewhere.
Usually without even realizing.
Tzukuri are aiming to put that problem to bed for good as the Australian eyewear designers are launching a line of sunglasses embedded with a beacon. The beacon sends notifications to your iPhone when you’re 5m, 10m and 15m away which will probably mean you’ll never lose your glasses again.
The solar powered beacon acts as a Bluetooth device, meaning Tzukuri’s can also be traced back to the nearest foot; in addition to showing the last known location you had your sunglasses with you on a map.
With 100% UV protection and handmade in Japan, the shades come in six styles and three different sized, all named after various eyewear icons.
As with many initial tech partnerships, this ones only available for the iPhone.
