E-paper technology is not exclusively limited anymore to Kindles and Kobo e-readers. Many fashion designers are starting to include it into their products to give people flexibility to customize shoes, smart jewelry and even clothing. A new crowd funding campaign has just been unveiled for a pair of e-paper sunglasses, where you can use your own images on the back temples.
In order to use your own images you have to insure that your smartphone has WIFI and NFC and you can send images right to your sunglasses. The company is also building their own repository where users can upload their own photos an creations and either sell it, or give it away for free.
Switch Art, a Paris based company is hoping to raise $22,000 within a month for these new glasses and they cost around $189 each.
