Tzukuri To Release iBeacon Sunglasses


Tzukuri Eyewear is set to release a new collection of smart shades, developed using 3D analysis to look good on more faces. Each pair is handcrafted in Japan, features high-quality polarized, anti-scratch lenses that offer 100% UV protection and… an iBeacon in each pair of shades. The iBeacon pairs the shades with your iPhone and alerts you if you’re about to forget your glasses, or if you’re about to walk away from your iPhone.

will be available toward the end of the year for around $350 (the company seems to be hinting at some sort of crowdfunding campaign, promising early backers a $100 discount) and connect via low-energy Bluetooth to an iPhone app. An Android version will be in the works once BLE (the Bluetooth Low Energy standard) becomes more pervasive on Android handsets. Learn more about the Tzukuri Eyewear at the official website…
