News reached me today of a truly remarkable indiegogo, sunglasses campaign.
The crowdfunding website featured CTRL ONE: Light adapting LCD Sunglasses. The funding goal of $20,000 was smashed by the time I visited the site.
Just 6 days into the campaign, the CTRL ONE indiegogo was already over $100,000... and climbing! So, what makes these specialist sunglasses so special?
Let’s take a look.
Initially developed for the military, the CTRL ONE sunglasses are now aimed at consumers, particularly cyclists. As any cyclist knows, it can be dangerous when cycling from sunlight or daylight, into dark conditions. Following a sudden weather change or when entering a tunnel, you often need to take your hands off the handlebars, with limited vision.
The CTRL ONE sunglasses can auto detect this kind of change and do something remarkable. They can change tint in [wait for it] 0.1 of a second!
That speedy tint change means you are able to carry on cycling, with your vision clear and your eyes protected from flies, rubble and dust, etc. You can also customize CTRL ONE sunglasses, using nose and temple pads that come with them. For further customization, you can set the tint that best suits your taste or usage scenario.
As part of their military heritage, CTRL ONE sunglasses also pack bulletproof lenses. The idea is for them to provide the maximum eye impact protection possible. As well as cyclists, the sunglasses are also aimed at hikers, runners and drivers of convertibles.
I’ve seen these sunglasses in action and the speed with which they change tint is impressive; something like the blink of an eye. The technology has been patented worldwide and it’s easy to see why.
