Tzukuri: Sunglasses That You Can’t Lose

 |  |  |  October 30, 2014


The worst part of having a nice pair of sunglasses is losing them. Especially if they were stolen from your checked bag, and every single American Airlines employee you talk to ignores you for about five¬†months. Then, when they get tired of seeing your of angry notes on social media they send an agent to “go look for them” and SURPRISE! they can’t be found damn-near half a year later. They then send you a needlessly complicated form to fill out, only to receive it, wait 60 days, and send a letter telling you that you’re magically expected to have a receipt for some sunglasses that you received as a gift two years ago. Not to be weirdly specific or anything.

That’s why Tzukuri sounds cool. They aren’t just a pair of sunglasses, they also have a proximity sensor that communicates with your phone when in range to give you “warmer” or “colder” signals. It’s just like finding that last, very sneaky hidden object as a kid. If it’s out of range, your phone will at least tell you what¬†the last location where they were detected. The developers also promise that there are other potential uses for the Tzukuri, including detection of nearby friends, sun-exposure measurement, and automatic adjustment of other devices based on the wearer’s proximity. I can dig it.
