Comments Off on Cinematiq glasses are made from strips of vintage films

Love movies? Now you have the opportunity to carry real movie scenes wherever you go with eyeglasses that feature pieces of actual strips from vintage 16 and 35mm films . The Cinematiq Eyewear team used film from old movie theaters, TV stations and private collections to handcraft the recently launched collection featuring original footage from two films– Shogun’s shadow (1989) and Fists of the double K (1973). Zachary Tipton, founder and owner of Cinematiq eyewear and Tipton Eyeworks first experimented with inserting film into eyewear back in 2005, and decided to revisit the concept with his new Cinematiq collection set to launch this month. All film is screened before use in production, then laminated to protect the emulsion from scratches and moisture. The lamination also reinforces the film before being laser cut and riveted between two stainless steel temple halves.

Eventually, they chose scenes from two films–Shogun’s shadow (1989) and Fists of the Double K (1973)- both of which have an abundance of outdoor scenes with natural lighting making them perfect for viewing with the naked eye. + Cinematiq Eyewear

Comments Off on Tiny Yves Behar-designed wearable warns you when youve had too much sun

A tiny piece of innovative tech wants to help you stay away from sun-induced skin cancer. Global beauty leader L’Oréal teamed up with prolific designer Yves Behar of fuseproject to create UV Sense, the first battery-free wearable electronic UV sensor. Soon to be unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show kicking off tomorrow, this innovative technology collects and shares real-time data on individual UV exposure within a wearable so small and thin it fits on a fingernail. The UV Sense is the second UV-related wearable product L’Oréal’s presented following the debut of their temporary tattoo-like My UV Patch last year. Like its predecessor, the UV-monitoring wearable is activated by UV rays and uses near-field communication to transmit information about exposure trends to a smartphone app. In response to user feedback about My UV Patch, the new and improved UV Sense is smaller, reusable, and updated to automatically sync with the app with real-time data. At just nine millimeters in diameter and less than two millimeters thick, the tiny UV Sensor is designed to fit on a thumbnail and can be worn for up to two weeks at a time. Users can reattach the sensor with a new adhesive. The technology can hold individual UV exposure data for up to three months. Instead of a battery, the technology is powered by the user’s smartphone. L’Oréal’s accompanying app shares information on sun-safety habits and personalized advance on how the user should adjust his or her sun exposure levels. Related: L’Oréal’s wearable patch changes color to warn against skin cancer “Design and technology are inextricably linked, and as products become more personalized to individuals, both elements are integral to providing people with seamless experiences,” said Yves Behar, designer entrepreneur and founder of fuseproject . “By working with L’Oréal, we are able to pair deep expertise in beauty tech with an effective design that enhances consumers’ wellbeing without distracting from their everyday lives.” UV Sense will be available in the U.S. with limited stock through their La Roche-Posay brand this summer 2018. The global launch is slated for 2019. + La Roche-Posay Images via L’Oréal
