Israeli Startup Brings Hi-Tech to Reading Glasses

The Fellowship  |  June 23, 2021

For people who need reading glasses, this new Israeli innovation might be for you! Do you ever walk around on a sunny afternoon wearing sunglasses only to have to switch to reading glasses to read a sign post or check a text message?

These new high-tech glasses allow you to do it all at once with just one pair of glasses, reports the Jerusalem Post:

With a swipe of the finger along the temple of the lens frame, the wearer can make the glasses switch between “scenic mode” and “reading mode,” with different vision settings that are set via smartphone app.

The 32°N sunglasses use a proprietary pixelated liquid crystals technology that enables the swift transition. It was developed over the course of 10 years by the company.
