I read an interesting sunglasses story today, which I'd like to share with you. It’s all about a flexible type of frame, which offer a number of interesting and potentially useful benefits.
The sunglasses come from Hong Kong based company, Baendit. They are made from something called TR-90 polymer, which is better known as “memory plastic”.
What makes this memory plastic so interesting, is that it’s extremely pliable. You can bend it into different shapes, without it being damaged or breaking. You can also bend the sunglasses back to their original shape whenever you wish. Memory plastic is also very strong and light, so sunglasses made from it are comfortable and strong.
Although these sunglasses have a number of novelty uses, such as wearing them as a wristband when you don’t want to wear them on your eyes, there are some useful applications for the flexible frames.
I have no idea whether this idea will gather interest, but it’s another example of the kind of creative work being undertaken in the sunglasses industry.
