Tzukuri’s smart sunglasses send alerts when you’ve left them behind

| 0 comments

A new company called Tzukuri claims to have created “unloseable” sunglasses, using tracking beacons embedded in the frame.

The glasses use Apple’s iBeacon technology to pair with a nearby iPhone, letting the two devices communicate over Bluetooth LE. As users move farther away from the glasses, they receive a series of three iPhone notifications in 15-foot increments. Users can open the Tzukuri app to see the glasses’ last known location and can use a proximity tracker to find the glasses when they’re within 25 feet. (The app does let users turn off notifications in certain places to avoid being pestered at home or at work.)
