Fashion articles par excellence, sunglasses are often the stars of summer. Of course, they are not immune to innovations! We suggest you to discover some of them.

Sunglasses that adapt to the brightness

Sometimes technology works wonders, and the French startup Shetters took the opportunity to imagine some particularly innovative solar devices .

Imagine glasses that adapt to brightness : no need to remove them when the we go under a tunnel or the weather darkens for a moment!

Thanks to photochromic lenses, a microchip and a solar sensor, these glasses adapt to the luminous glare to combine and guarantee protection optimal and perfect view .

The little extra? They are completely autonomous and require no battery!

Beyond the sun, Shetters has also developed visors for motorcycle helmets using the same technology.

Connected sunglasses for all tastes

Always on the cutting edge of technology, Shreds , high-performance solar to improve the final result with a filter that enhances natural colors, will be particularly appreciated by cyclists or skiers.

The giant Snapchat has also released the new version of its shows , able to take photos in addition to video clips while being waterproof (IP7 standard) and therefore perfect for the holidays!

Finally, the brand Zungle takes out his Viper V2 , the connected solar that obeys the voice, not only to listen to the music in all discretion, but from now on also to make calls or ask the weather!


You will not lose your suns this summer!

SlapShades, a New Zealand company, offers a range of foldable sunscreens called SlapSee Pro, powered by an articulated nose bridge and silicone-coated spring steel arms, with the ability to snap around the wrist, or of anything else.
