Automated Glasses Cleaning Machine: I Can See Clearly Now, the Smudge is Gone

 |  |  |  |  |  July 13, 2021

Glasses: they’re always getting fingerprints and oily smudges on them, and, at least in my case, ice cream. You know the old adage: you eat with your eyes first? It’s actually harder than it sounds. Enter the LensHD cleaning system currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. It’s an automated optical and sunglass cleaning solution that wipes lenses with microfiber-covered sponges. Think of it like one of those massage chairs, but for cleaning glasses.

$89 will secure a LensHD system at early bird pricing, with units expected to ship in November. The system, powered by a USB type C cord, takes about a minute to clean glasses, wiping them in an off-center rotation pattern to simulate “the comprehensive cleaning of a human.” See? I always knew my cleaning was comprehensive! Somebody call my parents so they can be proud of me.

Alternatively, use the bottom of your shirt to wipe your glasses like I always have. It’s worked fine for years, plus I don’t have to worry that my glasses are dirty, but my automated cleaner is at home because I’m already wearing it! And if I’m not, well, my wife is sure to let me know before I ever get in the car to leave.
