Home > Winners > #37231


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Recon Jet HUD sunglasses

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Smart Sunglasses for Sports

INSPIRATION:
We were inspired to create a wearable device capable of delivering critical activity-specific information in a discreet and practical way, while preserving the users freedom of movement and activity.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The first generation of consumer smartglass for sports and high intensity environments

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
When wearing the JET, the display is controlled by a precision optical touch-pad located at the front of the right module, supporting multiple gestures and facilitating use in all weather conditions, with or without gloves. The display is located in the lower right corner of the eye, making it easy to glance at without blocking peripheral vision.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Early 2012 and product shipping in December 2014. Designed and developed in Vancouver, Canada

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Double shot injection molded sunglasses with lightweight resilient TR-90. All HUD display's components are distributed evenly across the eyewear adding just 60 grams to the user's total equipment. The electronics include a 1 Ghz dual core microprocessor, 9-axis sensor suite, BLE, ANT+ and Wi-Fi communication protocols, all built into its hardware platform. The system features 8GB of memory, dedicated graphics, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3D gyroscope, compass, altimeter, pressure and temperature sensor and a HD camera. The Operating System is an android based platform with an open SDK for developers to develop 3rd party apps.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
145 mm by 155 mm by 60mm

TAGS:
Wearables, sunglasses, interactive, Cycling, Running, Sports equipment, high intensity environments,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We interviewed cyclists and runners to understand what type of wearable technology would benefit them in their activity. We identified the opportunity around providing activity critical data near to eye. We then did ergonomic testing with functional prototypes to find the ideal location for the screen. We then began designing the electronics packages and created 3d prints to test the ergonomic and fit of the design.

CHALLENGE:
Designing a solution that was capable of providing important information in high intensity environments, both in terms of product design and interaction design.
