Today we are embarking on a new project that will allow photo enthusiasts to leave their cameras home and be able to take pictures right through their glasses, either by a voice command or via a small button on the right side of the frame. We call it ‘Eye Photo’.
We are looking forward to working with the major manufacturers of eye glasses in the hope that they will embrace our idea. Our technical staff will be working 24/7 to complete this project before we propose it to the vendors.
What are staff will be doing is the following:
- Create a chip that will be able to differentiate between exposure and shutter speed settings and set the correct aperture/speed for the proper lighting conditions when the button is pushed.
- Create a color chip that will be able to determine the correct color balance for the photo.
Together, these two chips, in conjunction with their auxiliary components would be the equivalent to the current photo sensors used in today’s point and shoot cameras. They will work with prescription, progressive and sun glasses.
The sun glasses will require additional programming integrated into the chip since the shade must be disabled when the shutter is pressed. This type of glassware will be a little more expensive due to the additional complexity involved.
All components will be secured within a protective silicon ‘screen’ which keep them from being affected by the different weather conditions which includes, rain, snow, cold (down to 15°F) and heat (up to 100°F).
Our estimated time of completion is June 2016.
