Innovative reading glasses? ThinOptics rolls out Front Page Collection.

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    How do you innovate when it comes to reading glasses?    The folks at ThinOptics have been doing that….creating glasses that slip into cases for mobile phones.   Now the company has taken that thin and light design and created what it calls the Front Page Collection.   CEO David Westendorf…

   “Front Page Collection is the world’s thinnest, the world’s lightest fully functioning reading glasses.  They top out at somewhere around 10 grams, 4 millimeters wide.   This case is just an exquisite example of design engineering where we minimize as much mass and volume as possible.”

The new glasses, priced at 50 dollars,  feature temple arms like traditional eyewear instead of just sitting on the bridge of your nose.  And the case can still be mounted to the back of certain phones.  Clever and made to be durable.
