Sketches and Ideation
Power with looks
With competitors in mind, the goal would be to make iconic glasses without pushing them into the limelight. The design should retain merits beyond its technological value, and hold the compenents without having people question what they are wearing.
Technology and storyboarding
Less is more
Because the design was limited in space and form factor, choosing tech wisely remained essential to keep the glasses as a viable product.
Proven concepts like bone conducting headphones and vibration motors would communicate to the users a feasible amount of info, without placing the glasses out of the realms of production
Materials, Processes and CMF
Pragmatism to science fiction
While the technology is the focus, the process of creation remains vital to the product. The main frame will be created with a duroplast like cotton, molded to simulate carbon fiber. The part will be injection molded and filament welded together to avoid seams.
