Losing your glasses, prescription or sunglasses, can be very stressful. You need them to be able to see and/or protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. In order to solve this dilemma an Israeli design team has invented a clip called Look, which attaches to the arm of a pair of sunglasses or glasses, and when activated, the clip beeps to help locate the glasses.
This clip can sync using a smartphone via Bluetooth, and if you don’t have a smartphone or a smart device, you can pair it with a keychain remote. This new prototype was developed by Dafna Ariely, has a range of 50ft or 15 meters, and it is small and lightweight. Look weighs less than 20g, and according to Ariely, users will not feel a difference in the weight of the glasses on their face when this clip is attached. Look can clip on the inside of the arm of the glasses, and will not touch the user’s face due to its slim profile, as it is 0.4 inches wide, 1.5 inches long, and is only 0.2 inches thick! The Look is battery powered, and was designed with appearance in mind, as it is available in red, brown, black, white, and silver. Look can be attached to glasses using adhesive, allowing it to be removed easily and has the ability to be placed on other items that you would like to be tracked.
The frustration of losing a pair of glasses can often result in a loss of time, so Ariely was determined to come up with a solution when she couldn’t find a product on the current market. She currently is running an Indiegogo campaign that will be going on until November 2nd, and if the project is able to be funded, the Look clip will only cost $28 and the app that will be available on IOS and on Android will be free.
