Posted 2601 days ago from www.buyvogueglasses.com

Showcasing cool sunglasses or ’shades’ and creative eyewear designs that will help you stand out of the crowd. We feature concept glasses, tips for choosing the right sunglasses, cool sunglasses designs and famous celebrities wearing sunglasses.

Wikipedia defines sunglasses as ” a form of protective eyewear designed primarily to prevent bright sunlight and high-energy visible light from damaging or discomforting the eyes. They also help cancel out harmful UV rays from the sun. They can sometimes also function as a visual aid, as variously termed spectacles or glasses exist, featuring lenses that are colored, polarized or darkened. In the early 20th century they were also known as sun cheaters (cheaters being an American slang term for glasses)”


 


In the early 1900s, the use of sunglasses started to become more widespread, especially among stars of movies. It is commonly believed that this was to avoid recognition by fans, but an alternative reason sometimes given is that they often had red eyes from the powerful arc lamps that were needed due to the extremely slow speed film stocks used.[citation needed] The stereotype persisted long after improvements in film quality and the introduction of ultraviolet filters had eliminated this problem. Inexpensive mass-produced sunglasses were introduced to America by Sam Foster in 1929. Foster found a ready market on the beaches of Atlantic City, New Jersey, where he began selling sunglasses under the name Foster Grant from a Woolworth on the Boardwalk.


Cool Solar Sunglasses

While we have solar-powered windows already, it makes perfect sense to toy with the idea further by coming up with the Self-Energy Converting Sunglasses – or SIG for short. This pair of glasses feature lenses made of dye solar cells that are able to collect energy throughout the day, turning them into electricity to power your myriad of portable devices including cell phones, portable media players and the ilk.

According to designers Hyun-Joong Kim & Kwang-Seok Jeong, the dye solar cell used will be cheap organic dye used with nano technology providing cheap but high energy efficiency.
